As every year, the return to school starts well for technology fans thanks to the Berlin IFA that, although it is true that this year may have seemed somewhat more decaffeinated for some because one of the greats, Samsung, has left us without major releases, it cannot be said that it has not left us, once again, a few most promising debuts: practically all the devices we expected to see They have made an appearance in the German capital and we have still had the opportunity to meet a few more who we did not expect. We review the best tablets and phablets that have seen the light this past week and we take advantage to show them on video so you can get to know them better.

We started with the one that has undoubtedly been the main protagonist of the event, especially in the absence of a new Galaxy Note to compete with: Xperia Z5 Premium, has arrived accompanying the flagship of Sony with a screen that is only slightly larger (just enough to enter phablet territory, with 5.5 inches) but that has much more resolution, so much that it has become the first smartphone with 4K screen. This is not his only attraction, in any case, since we cannot forget his camera 23 MPof his elegant glass case neither of the water and dust resistance that characterizes the range. Of course, as you can imagine, no it will not come out precisely cheap to make us with this jewel: its price in Spain will be of 800 euros.

Sony's has not been, in any case, the only top-level phablet we have met in Berlin, since he finally made his debut there as well. Huawei Mate S, which arrives to succeed the Ascend Mate 7, although with a noticeably smaller screen (Huawei He has given up insisting on the 6 inches and has stayed this time in the 5.5 inches), and who can claim to have stolen the title of the first smartphone with the technology from the iPhone 6s Force touch. Among its virtues there is also an attractive metal housing and an even more attractive price, since the company has confirmed that it will be sold from just 650 euros, a very interesting price for a smartphone of this size and with these characteristics.

One of the debuts that we did not have but that has been most interesting is that of Acer Predator 8 Tablet. We had already had the opportunity to take a first look at another technology fair, but the only thing that was clear on that occasion was that I was going to have a peculiar design, as we have been able to verify later. Its unusual appearance, however, is due to the incorporation of a audio system with four speakers It helps create a surround sound that will help improve our gaming experience. Will it have enough qualities to defeat the Nvidia Shield Tablet in the field of gaming tablets? We will have to wait for November, when it will go on sale for 350 euros to check.
