game changer

RED HYDROGEN ONE About a year ago, the LG G5 arrived with its snap-on enhancement modules. Shortly after, Motorola brought its Moto Mods to market (check out our pocket guide this issue), and though it might turn out to be a bit of a fad, the upgradeable handset trend is certainly catching on. The RED Hydrogen One is the latest in this line. Only, unlike LG or Motorola, RED doesn’t specialise in phones at all; its strengths lie in cinematography, with its RED cameras to thank for the picture behind a sizeable chunk of movies (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, for example). Its new phone, though not a looker, has some unique entertainment-focused features that seem to tally with its movie-shooting skills. Its handset will come with a holographic 5.7-inch display,…

Matt Bolton EDITOR As the owner of an ageing iMac, Matt’s been most interested in the Surface Studio (p102) this issue. At least, until he dropped the Surface Dial on it, and we took it away from him. Jo Gulliver SENIOR ART EDITOR Jo got some new gesturecontrolled headphones, so now everyone’s distracted by the occasional flailing arm during the day. But they sound good, so she says this is firmly “your problem.” Andrew Westbrook OPERATIONS EDITOR Andy’s been pulled in by our 4K HDR projectors State of the Art test (p92).

editor’s letter

3 FOR £6! Amazing subs offer on p74 Within a couple of days, my culinary skills were producing their standard plumes of thick smoke, but instead of being rewarded with a noise to split the earth and summon the ancient horrors beneath, I just got a polite woman in the Protect warning me that there was smoke, and if I didn’t do anything about it, noise would happen. With a single button press, I silenced the Protect, then opened the kitchen window and carried on, no heart attack required. Then I got a lovely reassuring notification, “There was smoke in the living room, but it’s cleared now.” Why the hell was I putting up with the dumb version in the past? That’s the kind of things our 101 Gadgets You Can’t Live Without…
