When it comes to the world of technology, the annual Consumer Electronics Show has always been the event showcasing what to look forward to not just today but tomorrow. And for the first time ever, GadgetMatch honored the best in show.
At CES 2018, GadgetMatch handed out 15 awards including those for Best Smartphone, Best Consumer Laptop, and Best AI Device (click here for the complete list of winners). Each of our award winners were carefully selected by our editorial team, a result of many hours of scrutiny and debate.
Winners were given medals of excellence. Lenovo was our runaway winner this year taking home three awards; LG came in a close second with two.
GadgetMatch Awards are handed out at three of the biggest tech events of the year, the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas every January, Mobile World Congress in Barcelona every February, and IFA in Berlin every September. To be considered for an award, send us an email.
GadgetMatch celebrates the Predator League APAC 2019 championship!
The Philippines and South Korea brought home the bacon
The Predator League for Asia Pacific recently concluded its second season in Bangkok, Thailand from February 15 to 17, 2019. GadgetMatch’s Managing Editor, Marvin Velasco, witnessed the finals of the long-awaited event live.
For three long days, 26 teams from this side of the world competed to snag the trophy for the grand event’s featured games: Dota 2 and PUBG, wherein the Philippines’ TNC Predator and South Korea’s Afreeca Freecs Fatal won, respectively.
Shortly after, Predator announced the Philippines as next year’s host for the esports competition.

Hang Loose is GadgetMatch’s hottest new wallpaper
For the premium and classy
GadgetMatch’s latest wallpaper is created by Oliver James Simbulan, a young architecture student from the Philippines.
Entitled Hang Loose, the rendered illustrations reflect the artist’s dream getaway view: orange sunset, infinity pool, and a coastal designed home.
We decided to use these beautiful renders during Huawei’s Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro launch since they embody the Mate 20’s look — premium and classy. The Mate 20 Pro has been a consistent part of our Best Smartphones list, and we recently awarded it as the best premium smartphone of 2018, tied with the Apple iPhone XS Max.
According to the artist, the software used in creating these renders were AutoCAD, SketchUp, and Lumion 8 for planning, modeling, and finalizing the view.
