Stuff July issue out now with essential travel tech and a top TV buyer’s guide

Plus the best Lite phones and Sony’s PSVR blockbuster

We’re acutely aware British summertime hasn’t quite kicked in yet, but the beauty of Stuff’s “scorching” travel tech gadget guide is that it should prove the catalyst to book a proper getaway to sunnier climes.

City breaks, beach holidays, festivals and backpacking, we’ve got you covered – and given the July issue doubles as a terrific makeshift umbrella, that extends to sheltering you from the rain in the meantime.

New balls please

If it’s a staycation you’re after, taking in the Women’s World Cup, Wimbledon, the Cricket World Cup or Glastonbury on a big screen TV, we’ve got an essential guide to the best sets of 2019 – just don’t blame us if the last two are a total washout.

We run the rule on the One Plus 7 Pro to see whether it’s worth the £649 outlay, and if that’s still on the wrong side of pricy there’s a whopping Lite phones group test to discover if diet handsets from Google, Samsung, Huawei and more offer a flagship experience for far less cash.

Bach for good

Bringing sexy Bach with more musical compositions than you can Handel, Beta Yourself explores the world of dedicated classical music streaming service Primephonic... and should you need something to play those pieces on check out reviews for Naim’s Mu-so 2 soundsystem and the eagerly anticipated Powerbeats Pro truly wireless earphones.

Virtual reality offers another escape from the weather, so kudos to Sony for releasing what might be the greatest PSVR title yet in Blood & Truth – flick straight to the games reviews section to find out more.
