Stuff UK - April 2020
English | 110 pages | PDFIt’s been an odd month at Stuff HQ. Bags packed,the team were all set to head out en masse to Barcelona (tough gig) to cover the planet’s biggest smartphone show, Mobile World Congress (actuallya tough gig). Then the coronavirus struck and the whole event got cancelled. Twiddling our thumbs wondering if we would have any new touchscreens to attach them to, a triumph-over-adversity action plan kicked in as a number of major phone makers said to hell with it and released awesome new handsets anyway. So that’s why this month’s cover feature celebrates their endeavours – and we’ve even given some of them a sticker for being brave little soldiers in the form of a Stuff Mobile Award. MWC hasn’t just been about phones recently – it’s become a showcase for wearables too – so we also set about gathering what we think are just about the hottest watches, trackers and smart garments in the world. For cyberpunk fans, regular runners and wannabe Tyson Furys (boxing champs, as opposed to clinically obese), the choice is broad to say the least. You’ll find an eclectic selection of reviews in this April issue too, including a tech exclusive with the new Land Rover Defender all the way from Namibia. Cue Toto.
