At least two of them aren’t even on the market yet, but boy, have we been dreaming of getting our hands on them in 2015. From the game-changing OnePlus One Android super-phone to the Apple Watch, these are our top ten gadget craves of this year.
1. Game Changer: The OnePlus One
Priced at a revolutionary ₦50,000 (for the 16GB model), the device boasts premium specifications including a quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, a 5.5-inch 1080p display (that’s full HD), a 13-megapixel camera (with a 5-megapixel selfie shooter), 4G capability and stereo speakers tweaked to audio potency by JBL.

2. Laptop Killer: The Microsoft Surface Pro 3
Perhaps the coolest thing about this Windows 8.1-running tablet is Surface Pen, a stylus that mimics writing with a normal pen on paper. And with a battery that’ll keep it on for about nine hours, artists may look to make the Surface Pro 3 their new canvas. More
3. A Designer Watch On Steroids: The Moto 360
With the sleek, classic lines of a Patek Phillipe timepiece, the Moto 360 looks more like the perfect complement to Savile Row’s finest apparel than the piece of wearable tech that it really is. More
4. Aluminum Dream: The HTC One M8
From the gorgeous boundary-pushing LCD screen that greets you at first glance, to the beefy battery lodged in the rear of the phone’s unibody shell (itself a design triumph), the new HTC One is deliberate in its purpose: to be the device you’ll never want to put down. More
5. Resurrection: The Nokia N1
An aluminium shell. That, to us, is the second most extraordinary thing about Nokia’s N1, a 7.9-inch Android tablet made by a company with a reputation for covering everything it manufactures with (bright-coloured) plastic. More
6. Less Is More: The Samsung Galaxy S5
A better camera, a (dodgy) fingerprint scanner, a heart rate monitor (that needs work but may yet save countless lives), IP67-rated water and dust resistance (because sports), a more brilliant screen (than the last brilliant screen) and a revamped user interface are surprisingly enough for Samsung this time. More
7. Beast: The LG G3
With the Samsung Galaxy S5, Google’s Nexus 5 and the HTC One (M8) to contend with, LG has packed the G3 with enough tech to make the average laptop look bad. How does a quad core Snapdragon 801 processor paired with 3GB of RAM sound? More
8, 9 and 10 are a trifecta of Apple goods: the iPhone 6, the iPhone 6 Plus and the Apple Watch.
