HTC One M9 review

The HTC One (M8) is one of Stuff’s favourite phones ever. It sat atop our Top 10 smartphones list for a while and was shortlisted for smartphone of the year in the Stuff Gadget Awards 2014, no less. But it did divide opin...



Apple MacBook 2015 hands-on review

It’s going to take something special for Apple to lose the qualifiers and name a new laptop simply ‘MacBook’. There’s no ‘Pro’, no mention of a Retina Display, or an ‘Air’ to insinuate this thing’s small. It i...



OPPO N3 review

The OPPO N3 is the (relatively) ugly sister of the ultra-slim R3, being twice as thick and far chunkier even though the screen is only a touch bigger. What the OPPO N3 lacks in style and grace, it makes up for with sheer geeky ...



HTC Vive SteamVR hands-on review

If you’d told me a week ago that HTC was about to announce a VR headset in partnership with Valve, I’d have thought you were mad. But not only is that exactly what’s happened at MWC 2015 – I’ve also been lucky eno...



Samsung Galaxy S6 vs HTC One (M9): the weigh-in

In the space of a year, Samsung has changed its whole approach to smartphones. It might be because the S5 performed disappointingly in sales. It might be because the company received near-constant ribbing from smartphone enthus...

6 Things We Love About Windows 10 – And 3 We Hate

Goodbye, Windows 8 – it’s been er, interesting. But don’t feel too bad as you pack your bags – it’s not like you actually sunk Microsoft or anything (although we know that you did your damnedest). And as y...



LG G Watch R review

The Moto 360′s circular, minimalist design made it stand out from the square crowd, thanks to the simple fact that it looked more like, well, a watch. Indeed, the very fact that we’re starting off an LG review by mentio...



Apple iPhone 6 Plus vs Samsung Galaxy Note 4

A few years ago, asking somebody what a “phablet” was would have got you nothing more than a blank stare (and possibly, if you were a nerd at a stereotypical American school, a Chinese burn for asking such a dumb geek quest...



Oppo Find 7 review

OPPO’s Find 7 is a true spec warrior to worry even the mighty LG G3. It has a 5.5in, 2K screen, Snapdragon 801 processor and 3GB of RAM. It also has a 13MP camera that shoots 4K video. So, on specs alone, it matches or beats ...



LG G Flex 2 hands-on preview

We were lucky enough to get our hands on LG’s successor to the original G Flex before it officially strutted its stuff on stage here in Vegas. With souped-up specs and a revamped curvy design, it definitely causes a spike...



Samsung Galaxy Note Edge review

“Guys, we’ve got to do something,” begins Samsung boss Jong-Kyun Shin in the totally fictional smoke-filled board meeting we’ve made up just now. “People are bored of smartphones. They say they’re all the same, that...
