Top 5 gadgets for every fresher

Have you freshers done your gadget check? You start uni soon and you want to be sure that you’ve got all the necessary tech you need to start your academic year off correctly!

1. Smartphone

First thing’s first, there are a range of different smartphones you could buy so make sure you get the one that’s best suited for you. For example if you’re into photography then try searching for the phone with the highest spec camera. Or if you want to use your phone to do work on, think about getting a smartphone with a large screen. An image GIF Source

2. Laptop/Mac

If you prefer working on a much larger screen (and a lot of us do) then it’s time to invest in a new laptop or Mac. Again be sure to check the spec of each model you look at and find one that suits you and your needs. An image GIF Source
