VITRA EAMES RADIO When Charles and Ray Eames (of Eames Chair fame) unveiled the design for their new, compact table radio back in 1946, it was derided for being too small and too technical-looking, and never made it past the prototype stage. The US husband and wife team were clearly ahead of the design curve, though, because seven decades on that rejected masterpiece has been widely adopted by many radio brands… and now it’s been directly revived by Swiss furniture company Vitra. While the radio’s original austere design has been retained, the inner workings have been brought up to date by British audio firm REVO. So inside that sturdy walnut casing you get Bluetooth streaming with Qualcomm aptX tech, DAB/DAB+ and FM tuners, a 30W Class D amplifier, full-range speaker, smart-device…

MATT BOLTON Editor When it comes to finding the most beautiful TVs on the planet (p51), there was only one man to turn to: the guy who will not stop banging on about them. At least it kept him quiet for a few days. MICHE LLE McLAREN Art Editor Michelle’s been in need of a new phone for ages, but doesn’t want to have to go massive. The Palm phone (p92) seems right up her alley, assuming she can ever find the damn tiny thing. PAUL DOUGLAS Global Editor-in-Chief Paul’s quest for the ultimate portable work machine brought him to the Google Pixel Slate (p82) this month. He just wants one device that can do literally everything perfectly – is that so hard? ROB JONES Tech & Gaming Editor Our phones guru helped us pick the brightest new phone designs of…

editor’s letter

Everyone wants the new year to be better than what’s come before (and it feels like 2019 has an especially large pressure on it in this regard). To actually manage this, you kind of need a multi-pronged approach: doing things that help you feel happier in yourself is a big part, but so is just having great stuff around you that makes you feel better, or makes your life easier. Our main feature (p35) includes a lot of this, from getting fitter in a way you can sustain, to adding value to your home, to improving your commute – the latter of which is probably the single biggest upgrade most of us can make to our lives. But the theme is everywhere else in the issue as well – from the…

1 ONEPLUS 6T MCLAREN • £649, oneplus.com Cast your mind back a decade or so, and you’ll recall David Blaine pulling off various stunts in a bid to grab the public’s attention. Well, fast forward to the present day and OnePlus appears to be employing the same tactic. In October, the Chinese tech firm set a Guinness World Record for ‘the most people unboxing a phone simultaneously’ during the launch of its 6T handset. And it has now followed that up with a very special edition of said phone – a collaboration with F1 giant McLaren. Naturally, the emphasis here is on speed: OnePlus is calling the 6T McLaren its “fastest phone ever”, and a combination of Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 and 10GB of RAM certainly sounds like a multitasker’s dream. The zippy…

the future of phone design

The Honor Magic 2 has a “nearly 100%” screen-to-body ratio thanks to its slider The smartphone camera notch is one of the more divisive design decisions of recent years. It’s designed to address a genuine issue: when phones are almost entirely made of screens, where do you put the front-facing cameras and related sensors? Some firms have gone down the same road as Apple, with varying degrees of success at making the result look slick. But in 2019, the big phone makers are taking a big step forward, with new approaches to making this year’s handsets the most futuristic-looking tech of all time. For a start, it’s good news for anybody who loved the Matrix Nokias of the late 1990s: sliders are back! Back! BACK! Honor, Xiaomi and Lenovo are all launching…
