LG OLED48A2 TV: A small and affordable OLED TV
Among the latest televisions presented by LG, the A2 range is simply the gateway to Oled televisions for smaller budgets. Of course, we must expect some concessions, but in general, we find the know-how of the brand. The model that we present to you is the one with a diagonal of 48 inches. A small television ideal for small interiors and enough to view your content thanks to its Oled panel that offers infinite contrasts with deep blacks, vivid colors and excellent brightness.
The LG 48A2 provides excellent definition thanks to its 4K HDR support and also supports some of the best video standards such as HDR10 and Dolby Vision. As for audio, we are entitled to surround sound thanks to compatibility with Dolby Atmos. To lower the bill price, the A2 model is limited to a 60Hz panel and does not have any HDMI 2.1 connector that authorizes 4K@120Hz. However, LG TV offers ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode) function to reduce latency to the maximum. And of course, we find WebOS and all its advantages.
Normally at €999, the 48-inch LG OLED A2 TV is currently on sale at €699 on the Rue du Commerce site.
iPhone SE 2020: the iOS experience without paying the high price
The 2020 iPhone SE was recently replaced by the 2022 model, but it may prove to be a good solution for those who want to try the iOS experience, after years on Android. It certainly offers an outdated design, but it will please the most nostalgic and especially those who prefer compact formats. Advising an iPhone dating from 2020 is not a bad thing, since the Cupertino company is recognized for offering software monitoring for a period of 5 years.
Its small format hides the A13 Bionic chip, a chip that still has something in its belly and that ensures a fluid use experience on a day-to-day basis. And the good news is that you can enjoy the latest iOS 16 update with some of its new features. Limited to one sensor, it will lack versatility, but manages to deliver beautiful daytime shots. As for autonomy, it will take a day, or even less if you have intensive use.

Samsung Galaxy S22: the most affordable flagship of 2022
The Samsung Galaxy S22 is now in the background with the arrival of the Galaxy S23. It remains to be recommended in particular for its premium design and its small 6.1-inch Amoled display in Full HD+ (ie 2,340 x 1,080 pixels) and its 120Hz adaptive refresh rate. On a daily basis, demanding applications will run No problem. other than games experiencing some slowdowns with graphics pushed to max. Android 12, with the One UI 4 interface, promises a very smooth user experience.
The autonomy is quite average, since the 3,700 mAh battery will not allow the smartphone to last a full day with intensive use. We’ll take solace in fast charging (up to 25W) and wireless charging, which will be present, but we’ll have to make sure we have our charger nearby, just in case. As for photography, we are entitled to great versatility, with special mention to the good level of detail that can be seen in the shots captured by the main sensor.
