Stuff Gadget Guide to smartphones is out now

Check out our fancy new bookazine – even if you have no idea what one is

The Stuff Gadget Guide to smartphones is the first in a brand new series of bookazines helping you to pick out the best tech and get to grips with it in no time.

Now I know what you’re thinking, Stuff magazine already does this every month, what’s a bookazine and why are you being so goddamn helpful? Well, there’s only so much we can write about one topic in each issue before we get bored and descend into Cliff Richard themed headlines.

The Stuff Gadget Guide, on the other hand, is a quarterly tome dedicated to discussing a hot tech trend in far, far greater detail. First up it’s smartphones, because the bewildering amount of new handsets and features that arrived in 2019 is frankly confusing.

Stuff Gadget Guide 001: Happily engaged

Packed with consumer advice, expert reviews, hacks, apps, games and the best accessories, the Stuff Gadget Guide will help anyone looking to upgrade and master their mobile phone until they achieve OS guru status.

It’ll also help narrow down the choice if you’re looking to buy a phone for someone special, and we’ve been careful to cater for every budget. Finally, it makes a great stocking filler for the technophobe in your life looking to get up to speed on the latest and greatest phones before taking the plunge.

Inside you’ll find no fewer than 42 phones rated from budget blowers to flagships, guides to iOS, Android and 5G, and just for giggles a countdown of our 23 favourite phones of all time. Like I say, we get a bit bored.

The Stuff Gadget Guide to smartphones is out now from all good newsagents and supermarkets, or through the Kelsey store where you’ll also find awesome Stuff subscription gifting offers including the first three issues for a fiver – less than a posh coffee and a mushroom slice that.
