Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1
For the student who needs or prefers to use a tablet, Samsung’s Galaxy Tab A 10.1 is one of the best options available nowadays. Available in Black and Gold, the Tab A boasts a unibody metal design and narrow bezels to maximize its stunning 1920 x 1200 10.1” screen. The Tab A’s powerful dual speaker system, enhanced by Dolby Atmos 3D surround sound, fully immerses viewers in what they’re listening to or watching. Parents who get their kids one of these tablets can rest easy in the knowledge that its inbuilt Kids Home and Parental Control features allow them to provide a safe and monitored digital platform for fun and learning. Parents who go further and set up a family group can allow each member of the family to use Samsung accounts to share pictures, calendar events, notes, and other reminders with everyone else. And the SmartThings app allows the Tab A to easily and quickly monitor and control other devices and connected appliances. A 6150mAh battery allows long usage times.
Globe At Home Broadband Wifi (UNLI Plan 1699)
But if you don’t have a fast and reliable internet connection, your investment in your device won’t be maximized at all–and for students who need to be able to connect seamlessly, having a poor net connection can spell the difference between passing and failing. A good internet plan such as the Globe At Home Broadband Wifi (UNLI Plan 1699) can really make a difference. This plan offers up to 20 Mbps speeds; a free landline that offers unli calls to Globe and TM phones; also supports family health thanks to bundled 6-month access to KonsultaMD Family Plan; and even helps keep families entertained through its included 3-month access to Amazon Prime Video, HBO GO, and Viu.
Smart Bro LTE Pocket Wifi
If and when students will need to head out–or even if they don’t, they might need an additional Wifi connection at home–a portable pocket Wifi device like the Smart Bro LTE Pocket WiFi can be of service. The device allows up to five users to connect to it at speeds of 256 kbps to 42 Mbps, and Smart says that it’s LTE 700mHz ready for improved indoor coverage in selected areas. A 2000mAh removable battery helps ensure that users will stay connected for as long as they need to (you may want to bring a compatible cord and power bank to lengthen the battery life). SD cards of up to 32GB capacity are supported. Smart offers the LTE Pocket Wifi with assorted postpaid plans and prepaid offers.
However a student is attending his or her online classes, it’s imperative to ensure that s/he doesn’t disturb others–most especially given that many of us are still at home. A set of wireless earphones or headphones might make all the difference. The Vivo TWS Neo is an option worth checking out. This headphone set is aptX Adaptive, helping preserve 1.5 times more sound data than traditional wireless earphones, helping guarantee excellent music sound quality. Vivo’s DeepX sound system is also incorporated to enhance sound even further by offering three sound effects, Mega Bass, Clear Voice and Clear Pitch High. The TWS Neo can even be used for gaming thanks to latency as low as 88ms–nearly no delay between what can be seen on the screen and what can be heard. Full control via tapping and sliding, Bluetooth 5.2, Find My TWS Neo, and a 22.5-hour battery life round out this set’s power feature list.
Lastly, students returning to school might need a smartphone–and if so, the Oppo Reno 4 is no less than an excellent choice. Oppo has packed a lot of power into this thin and light phone. Its dual punch-hole setup maximizes the real estate of its 6.4” Low Blue Light certified display, and its Snapdragon 720G processor, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage offer top performance. The phone’s camera set boasts three rear cameras (48MP wide, 8MP ultrawide, 2MP depth) and one front-facing snapper (32MP wide). Other power features include AI Color Portrait, which leverages AI technology to emphasize particular parts of images or video snippets by keeping them in color and making the background black and white; 960 frame-per-second slow-motion video playback; Smart AirControl for touchless operation; steady video features to smooth out clips; and Smart Spying Prevention to automatically disable message pop-ups when someone else is peeking at them. Get the Reno 4 in Galactic Blue or Space Black.
