December issue out now!

And there’s so much tech goodness inside it’s almost as if Christmas has come early for your eyes

The days are getting shorter and winter’s drawing in, but don’t worry – that just means more time indoors to read the December issue of Stuff magazine.

In this month’s seasonal edition we’ve undertaken the traditional yuletide Supertest, pitting the iPhone 6 against four of the best Android phones in the world: LG’s G3, Sony’s Xperia Z3, Samsung’s Galaxy Alpha and the new Motorola Moto X. Hark the herald smartphones sing.

If gaming’s more your thing and you can tear yourself away from the new Call of Duty, we’ve taken a look at the triumphant journey of indie games and how they came to be world beaters, plus asked Supergeek Craig Grannell why anyone would want to drop a significant portion of their pay check on an arcade machine. He makes a pretty convincing argument so be careful if your wallet is of a nervous disposition.

In the distance you might just be able to hear the sound of some strange music. That’s because Stuff HQ is currently awash with weird and wonderful instruments, which we’ve beautifully photographed and scrawled some words about for this month’s Design feature.

We’ve also tested the best Chromebooks, compiled a geek’s guide to Christmas, plus there’s the usual what’s what in the world of new gadgets and those world famous Top 10s. It’s like Santa’s come early.

And how do you get your hands on such a treat? Hop off down to your local newsagent, swivel your browser in the direction of, or point your iPad at Apple’s Newsstand and we can begin.
