Everything we know about the Samsung Galaxy Note 8

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 wasn’t a great outing and while the company is well on its way to making up for it, it’s the Galaxy Note 8 that will finally close the book on 2016. We’re expecting that they’re going to want to keep at least a few secrets before the reveal of their Apple-competition handset later this year but… we’ve never really liked the idea of ...[Read More]

The renders potentially give us our best look at the design choices that Apple will make for this year’s iPhone. Initial renders were made by website Engadget, being based on ...[Read More]

8 things you need to know about the HTC U11

HTC loves a gimmick for its flagships. Whether it’s putting massive ‘Ultrapixels’ in its camera, or cramming in two screens on the front, it’s always trying to cook up that special sauce which will make its phones irresistibly tasty. Does the new HTC U11 have that special sauce? Well it’s squeezable. And it has two voice assistants inside it. So that’s a good st...[Read More]

Samsung’s Galaxy S8 sells more than 5 million units (and there’s a lot of year left to go)

Samsung’s well on its way to complete its bounce-back from 2016, with their new Galaxy S8 handset selling in excess of 5 million phones since launch. We already knew that Samsung was having a good year but we didn’t have anything more than vague percentages to back that up. 5 million, though… that’s a serious number for a phone that has been on the market for about six week...[Read More]

The first 12 things you should do with your new LG G6

Look out, world – LG is back in the phone game, and it means business. The G6 is the antidote to the modular madness that was last year’s G5, and it’s looking like one of the best flagship phones you can snap up right now. With Android 7.0 Nougat running the show, and the latest version of LG’s own UX 6.0 making the most of that eye-catching 18:9 display, there’s plenty of tweaks, toggles an...[Read More]

Always out of juice? Oukitel’s 10,000mAh smartphone could be what you need

We’re all been there — out somewhere and there’s a tell-tale bleep informing you that you forgot to charge your phone. If that’s you more often than not then Chinese company Oukitel has a smartphone that you might find interesting. Called the K10000 Pro, its main distinguishing feature is its battery — a pocket-busting 10,000mAh — which should be enough to keep ...[Read More]

7 things we love about the Samsung Galaxy S8 – and 3 we don’t

Oh hello there, beautiful. The Galaxy S8 has arrived, and has been getting glowing reviews across the board – and it looks like the folks here at Stuff will be joining that list. It’s easily one of the best phones Samsung has ever made – and not just because it hasn’t blown up. So far. But while there are loads of things to love about it and its bigger brother, it isn’...[Read More]

You Jelly? This tiny little Android on Kickstarter runs Nougat

The Stuff team has been around. Like, long enough to remember a time when you weren’t cool until you had the smallest feature phone possible. That was a weird time. Well it might be rolling back around, if the response to the Jelly smartphone Kickstarter is any indication. That’s because the Jelly is billing itself as the world’s smallest 4G smartphone and with dimensions of R...[Read More]

Apple goes after all of your mobile money, launches Apple SIM

Apple has long reigned over their own ecosystem, that fabled walled garden that is the App Store. Inside, they have (mostly) total control over what their customers get to see, purchase, or download. But they seem to have decided that isn’t enough, so the company has launched a little something called Apple SIM. Guess what that does? If you said “Makes bacon!” then congratulation...[Read More]

The Galaxy Note 7 returns to South Korea this June

It hasn’t been much of a secret that Samsung is bringing the Galaxy Note 7 back — the company has pledged to recycle the phones that it can’t convert into something that they can offer for sale, after all. Now we have a timeline of sorts for people hoping to grab a non-combustible Note 7 and that time is June. As long as you live in South Korea. That’s the word according to...[Read More]

The Galaxy S8 is selling really, really well

Samsung’s Galaxy S8 is selling really well — even before the handset is officially on-sale in most of the world. And this is in spite of, and perhaps the company wishes that people would shut up about this, the events of 2016 which saw the Note 7 being released to much fanfare, only to blow up in Samsung’s (and a few customers’) faces. You’d think that having to under...[Read More]
