An always up-to-date list of my favorite things.

My Favorites

📱 Phone

I've been using a Google Pixel for about 5 years now, and I'm in love with it. I use it to control my smart home, work, and entertainment. It's the perfect balance of performance and price in my opinion. Also, if you need to interview someone, the recording app lets you generate a live transcription, which is super handy in many situations. The exact model I currently is the Google Pixel 4a, but I would recommend the Google Pixel 6a.

🎧 Headphones

To me, there's only two choices here: you can either go for the Apple AirPods Max, but it's quite pricey. Or you can do like I did, and go for the Sony WH-1000XM5. They're great headphones for music, podcasts, and work. I also take them to the gym.

📚 Reading

Although I always love the feeling of a real book (I'm one of those people who smell books before diving into it), I must say that it's very convenient to use a Kindle Paperwhite whenever I'm on the go or to read books that I don't necessarily want to display on the shelf. I had made a video about how I use it in terms of language learning. You can check it out if you're interested.

🗣️ Language Learning

I've used the Mosalingua apps for almost 10 years now, and they're my favorite flashcards apps. But I also recommend the premium features to go deeper in each of your target languages.

🎙️ Microphone

For my podcasts, I've been using the Shure Mv7, which is one of the best microphones out there. It is very easy to use and offer all you need to start a professional podcast.

💻 Computer

I've recently bought a new MacBook Pro M2 and in spite of the high price tag, I couldn't recommend it enough. It's an absolute beast that lets you do everything you need. If you're a creator, you can edit videos in 6k without any problems.

⌨️ Keyboard

As I like to use an external monitor for my poor eyes, I use the Apple Magic Keyboard with Touch ID. It's almost exactly the same as the keyboard on the MacBook Pro, which is very important to me because you don't feel lost typing on the onboard keyboard of the laptop whenever you're on the go.

🎥 YouTube

For YouTube, I've been using a Sony A6500 for many years and it's a good budget camera. Honestly, you'd rather invest some bucks in a good lens than on the camera body. In terms of lenses, I basically use a Sony 11m f1.8. It's a wide angle lens that very versatile. You can vlog without any issues.

My new favorite camera of all time is the DJI Osmo Pocket 3. Such a compact and versatile camera. You can't beat it for the price.

One last investment I would recommend is a good microphone. I needed something small and good, that's why I went for the Rode VideoMicro. What's great is that you plug it, and it uses the battery of the cameras, so you never have battery issues. Plus, it's cheap.
