15 Best Tech Products of 2022 | Man of Many

To arrive at this list of products, the Man of Many team went through hours of rigorous testing, implementation and analysis before culling it down to the very best. Over the last 12 months, we’ve worked on curated products that push boundaries and pioneer new fronts, across the automotive, fashion, lifestyle and technology verticals. Sure, we love getting the latest piece of kit in our hands, but being able to point out the benefits and shortfalls objectively is at the heart of what we do.

How Man of Many Chose the Best Tech Products of 2022

Our list of the best tech product releases of 2022 includes the following.

Best Tech Products of 2022

1. Dell XPS 13 Plus

As far as laptops and computers released in 2022, it was hard to go past the Dell XPS 13 Plus. Of all the tech products we reviewed this year, the all-in-one portable device was far and away the most versatile and impressive. While it might not have the unique processor power that the Apple MacBook Air with M2 does, Dell’s flagship laptop more than made up for it in other ways.
You can talk about the latest innovations in tech products without including GoPro, which revolutionised action cameras forever! The newest edition to their lineup is the GoPro Hero 11 Black, and it turns everything all the way up for creators. Adding 10-bit colour, a larger and more immersive field of view, and an improved level of stabilisation to the already impressive levels we saw on the Hero 10 Black, the company has once again outdone itself.

3. Nothing Phone (1)

A startup company called Nothing has an Android smartphone that is making some serious waves in the market. Leveraging transparency as its signature design point, the Nothing Phone promises “less distractions. More soul. Just pure instinct, formed as a machine. Told through beautiful symbols. Deeper interactions. And brave simplicity.
The MacBook Air has maintained a similar form factor ever since Steve Jobs pulled it out of that manilla envelope all those years ago. Now in 2022, the beloved thin-and-light notebook is getting a facelift and a brand-new Apple Silicone chip to boot. Bigger and better, the Apple Macbook Air M2 is thinner, lighter and faster with a bigger 13.6-inch Liquid Retina display, a FaceTime HD camera, and all-day battery life, and it comes in four beautiful finishes.

When arcades first started popping up, it was always the dream to be able to take the arcade with you. While portable gaming platforms from Nintendo (GameBoy, DS and Switch) and Sony  (the PSP and Vita) certainly did a lot to make handheld gaming a reality, walking around with a massive library of AAA gaming titles in your pocket is often out of reach. That is until the Logitech G CLOUD Gaming Handheld landed at our feet.

This list is in no particular order, so Samsung lovers need not worry about the Galaxy Fold4 coming in after the iPhone 14 Pro Max. And besides, everyone has an iPhone these days. For a smartphone that will turn heads and have people asking to check it out, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 is the most innovative and eye-catching device we’ve seen all year.

The term AI gets thrown around a lot these days. Everything from smartphones to TVs has some kind of AI-integrated technology that promises to revolutionise the industry. Well, did your AI manage to piss off the entire art community? Say hello to Open AI Dall-E 2, a new AI system that can create realistic images and art from natural language descriptions.

Apple’s flagship phone, the iPhone 14 Pro Max, offers “innovative new technologies like the Always-On display and the Dynamic Island, which offer new interactions for notifications and activities”, alongside groundbreaking safety capabilities like fall detection. Powered by the A16 Bionic chip and all-day battery life, it is undoubtedly the best iPhone to date, mainly since they’ve found a way to make that annoying camera notch useful.

8. Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max

It might have Pro in the title, but the DJI Mini 3 could be the best beginner drone on the market. Utilising software designed to bridge the gap between novice and professional, it’s a compact but high-specced aerial acrobatic drone that can capture all of your footage in 4K/60fps, with a 1/1.3-inch sensor that features dual-native ISO and supports the direct output of HDR footage. Trigger powerful storytelling tools like FocusTrack, MasterShots, and Timelapse at the tap of a button to take your videos from amateur to Hollywood.

9. DJI Mini 3 Pro

We already loved the previous iteration of the Sony WH-1000XM5 for its looks alone. But after seeing what they’ve done to the latest addition’s design, we feel like that Distracted Boyfriend meme. Our reviewer, Ben McKimm, described them as “the most polished pair of noise-cancelling headphones money can buy that also look great.” But beyond the looks, what else makes these so damn good that they’ve made the list of top tech products of 2022?

The Tech Industry: Sure, the Samsung Galaxy Fold4 is impressive, but can you make a foldable laptop? 

ASUS: Hold my drink.

11. Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED

You’ll notice our list is missing LG, which basically means we consider Samsung and its S95B OLED 4K QD Smart TV the top pick for OLED technology in 2022. The basis of Samsung’s OLED technology is an array of 8 million self-lit pixels with Quantum Dot Technology to deliver brighter, more accurate highlights and realistic colours.

It’s Meta’s most advanced VR headset, so ignore the price point for just a moment while we stan all over the Meta Quest Pro. The result of billions of dollars of research and development – which or may not be costing Big Zuck the big bucks – the latest iteration of its flagship VR device is less about VR gaming and more about the future of the Metaverse.

13. Meta Quest Pro

Fujifilm continues to shake up the camera world, setting new benchmarks and smashing photographers’ expectations for what’s possible with its X-H2 Mirrorless Camera, the fastest and sharpest yet. The fifth-generation imaging technology, the latest evolution of its X Series, takes the brand to new heights with an all-new 40.2-megapixel sensor that boasts unrivalled image quality across stills and video. An enhanced image-processing algorithm works behind the scenes to boost resolution without compromising the signal-to-noise ratio, offering near-unrivalled image quality that is sure to unlock new levels of creativity.

14. Fujifilm X-H2

Given how advanced wireless earbuds have grown, it’s impressive how manufacturers like Bose have managed to cram so much technology into such a compact package. For instance, the QuietComfort Earbuds II has CustomTune technology, optimising audio by automatically adapting noise cancellation and sound quality to your ears’ preferences.
