The demands of top executive posts can sometimes be too heavy to handle. But smart technological devices can help ease the workload. Here are some of them:

Microsoft Surface Pro 6

Microsoft’s very own creation, Surface Pro 6 is one of the best Windows 10 devices in the market today. This two-in-one tablet computer is lightweight and therefore easy to carry around. And it’s remarkably powerful as well, running on the latest 8th generation Intel Quad Core processor. Microsoft says it’s 67% faster than the fifth generation Surface Pro. Surface Pro 6’s 12.3-inch screen is also one of the sharpest around for a tablet and a laptop, with a resolution of 2736 x 1824, resulting in pixels per inch of 267. What’s more, the device offers a battery life of up to 13.5 hours of local video playback. There are several storage options available: 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB and 1 TB solid-state drives. Surface Pro 6 has unibody magnesium design and comes in two colors, platinum and black.

Apple iPad Pro

Described by Apple as its most advanced and powerful iPad ever, iPad Pro has two models, an 11-inch one and a 12.9-inch one, which both possess the Liquid Retina display technology. According to Apple, the screen of the iPad Pro is the brightest and the most color-accurate iPad display, with wide color gamut and anti-reflective coating for a natural and accurate viewing experience indoors and out. The new iPad Pro also features ProMotion technology that automatically adjusts the display fresh rate up to 120 Hz for smooth scrolling and better responsiveness. Despite being a laptop and running on the mobile operating system of Apple, iOS, iPad Pro is no slouch when it comes to performance. Apple says the A12X Bionic chip, with four performance cores, four efficiency cores and next-generation Neural Engine, in the iPad Pro outperforms most PC laptops. The other key feature of the tablet is the USB-C connector, which replaces the Lightning connector present in previous iPad Pros and can be used to charge an iPhone.

Samsung Galaxy Note10

The newly released flagship phablet of Samsung, the Note10 is a sophisticated piece of technology crafted to be sleek, slim and distraction-free. For the first time, the new Note series comes in two screen sizes: 6.3 inches (Note10) and 6.8 (Note10+) inches. The display on both models is considered to be Samsung’s best smartphone display yet. It is a Dynamic AMOLED kind of display that has a stunning wide color range, an HDR10+ certification and Dynamic Tone Mapping. Among the key productivity features of the Note10 series is the handwriting-to-text functionality; users can scribble down notes with the S Pen and convert their handwriting into digital text in Samsung Notes, an app, and export it to different formats, including a Microsoft Word file. The Note10 smartphones that have 5G can reach hyper-fast speeds (There are Note10 versions that have LTE instead). Note10+ 5G, in particular, is capable of harnessing the full power of the next-generation network for streaming high-resolution video, among other activities.
