Best of IFA 2013: Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy Gear, Xperia Z1, G Pad 8.3 and more
It's hard to believe it's been almost an entire week since we liveblogged the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Sony Xperia Z1 events while struggling to keep tabs on the numerous other announcement made throughout the halls of IFA 2013. But now that we've had a moment to catch our breaths and take a more holistic approach to all that transpired at the exhibition, it feels like just the right moment for a pick of some of the most interesting devices that we witnessed undergo their respective rite of passage.

Two main events took place on the 4th of September, as you probably know – the announcements of the Xperia Z1 and the Galaxy Note 3 – both of which sent a merciless barrage of raw information that we did our best to decipher and transform into a legible, coherent format, while preserving the core for you. Somewhat unfortunately, however, the caliber of the aforementioned introductions overshadowed other great devices that saw the light of day for the first time. For that very reason we've cherry-picked some of best of those for you in the slideshow down below, which is precisely where you should head right about now.
