We asked our resident IT guy about his favorite tech for back to school & here's what he came back with....

Best cell phone:

Moto G4

The Moto G4 is a great handset that sports a low price for the budget minded, a very useful bright HD display and is surprisingly powerful. Another huge plus is this phone comes unlocked so for those traveling abroad, that’s one less thing to worry about. However the phone is missing some of the better features of other Moto phones such as NFC, a fingerprint reader, and the ability to use Moto Maker to customize the device. Ultimately it’s a great phone and the missing features don’t hinder the experience at all.

Best headphones:

Samsung LevelOn

Earmuffs are a great way to drown out your roommate's distractions and there’s no better option than the Samsung Level On Wireless headphones. These headphones come equipped with noise cancelling technology, and supports high quality audio for people with latest Galaxy Phones (S6 S7).

Best laptop:

HP Spectre x360

Being a university student is all about versatility and the HP Spectre x360 is a 2-in-1 design that does perform as well as a laptop as it does a tablet. A great upside to this wonderful device is the price coming in under $1,500 as opposed to some of the other laptop models which don’t have the same amount of performance or functionality. It weighs less than 3 pounds, and sports a very nice 13inch full HD display. A 4K option is available however the 13 inch is good enough and keeps the price low. The battery life is good enough, better than other 2-in-1’s on the market, providing 10 hours of battery life using a 57 watt/hour battery. Overall this laptop rocks and has enough power to handle whatever professor throws at you.
