This holiday season, foodie tech gadgets are hot. My fellow foodies will love the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Verizon Ellipsis 10! And, I'm giving away one Verizon Ellipsis 10 to one lucky giveaway winner!
Even before I became a full-time food, wine, and travel blogger and photographer, I took a LOT of photos. Tons of photos. I took photos everywhere I went, of anything that caught my eye. I also have always been in love with creating in the kitchen.
So if you're a foodie who loves taking photos and cooking at home, you're going to love the two foodie tech gadgets that I am reviewing today. BONUS: one lucky winner will win one of them!
Foodie Tech Gadgets
Recently, I had the opportunity to review two foodie tech gadgets: the Samsung Galaxy S7 phone and the Verizon Ellipsis 10 tablet. I should note that I am an Apple girl through and through. I have iEverything. But I was impressed by a few specific features that I think my fellow foodies will love too!
Samsung Galaxy S7
The Samsung Galaxy S7 has an AMAZING camera. I was highly impressed with the clarity of each photo I took, and I love the special FOOD photo setting. Granted, if you know how to use any cell camera, you would be able how to attain the same effects. However, the Samsung Galaxy S7 allows you to attain those effects with one simple button! So fast and easy!
I also love the extra photo editing options you have with the Samsung Galaxy S7 phone. You can add frames, special effects, and stickers, right in the phone's camera app. I love this option instead of having to download a separate app in order to do the same.
So if you're a foodie looking to up your Instagram game with the ease of one-button editing, the Samsung Galaxy S7 might be for you!
Verizon Ellipsis 10 Tablet
The next foodie tech gadget I recently had the opportunity to review is the Verizon Ellipsis 10. This 10" tablet is available only from Verizon Wireless, has a reported 25-hour battery life, and is powered heavily by Google everything.
At home, we have an iPad and a Kindle, so I was able to compare the Ellipsis 10 to our devices. My daughter really likes the Ellipsis 10. It's fast, has clear, bright graphics, and is pretty easy to navigate.
The Movies & TV section would be great to use during holiday travels. There are several free movies and television show episodes but also a large library of low-cost movies and shows that are kid-friendly.
We tested the camera with one of our favorite models: Bliss Dog. It's a great camera for a tablet! Very clear, fast , and great editing options.
It comes with a Pandora-like music app that my daughter loves, too. Super easy to navigate with lots of great music options. The speakers on the Verizon Ellipsis 10 are fantastic and designed to amplify sound with incredible clarity.
For my fellow home cook foodies, this tablet also comes with voice activated technology that will read your recipes and cooking tips out loud. It's like having a sous chef in the kitchen with you! This would especially come in handy during the busy holiday baking season.
