welcome

When you work in an office with a constant stream of the latest and greatest tech arriving on your doorstep, it can be all too easy to lose sight of the fundamental differences between ‘want’ and ‘need’. Nobody needs an OLED TV that rolls up into a cabinet doubling as a soundbar, but as sure as the grass is green we want one and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. It’s not greed, it’s desire – an incentive, something to work for. That, then, is the basis for Stuff’s annual Most Wanted list: a chance for our pool of experts to offer a self-indulgent opinion on the gadgets, games and gear they currently desire above all else. Of course, our opinion isn’t sacrosanct; so if you’ve got a favourite…

I GOT A 5G HOME HUB I was a little apprehensive about having a Huawei box and a Google box in the same room, but so far, so good – at least when I’m in the flat. Optimum data-guzzling tastes good – it’s like eating all your favourite things while having a throat 10 times wider than normal, and not needing to chew. While it was kind of Three to send over a lovely technician (pictured below), it’s a simple plug-and-play setup that my non-existent dog could have figured out. Do they not trust me? Natalya Paul, Online Editor I LEARNED TO FEND FOR MYSELF Conscious that at the age of 36 I was in serious danger of devolving into a vicious cycle of Deliveroo orders, I was prompted by the takeaway company’s decision…

HOT FOUR #1 BOAST-IT NOTES Samsung Galaxy Note 10 & Note 10+ Samsung isn’t exactly known for springing surprises. So while much of what you get with its new Note 10 and 10+ could have been guessed before they were unveiled, that doesn’t mean there’s not plenty here to get excited about. With its massive 6.8in AMOLED Infinity-O screen, 12GB of RAM, 4300mAh battery and quad-camera array, the Note 10+ (£1099) is the pick of the pair, but both come with slimmer bezels and all the internal gubbins needed to work with 5G. Then there’s the classic S Pen, which now features gesture controls that let you channel your inner sorcerer and control apps with a flick of the wrist. The extra camera on the 10+ is for depth-sensing, while the others offer telephoto (12MP),…

What sort of person buys Snapchat Spectacles, and who are we to judge? Well, actually, we’re precisely the people to judge. Ridiculous, aren’t they? And yet, with some clever depth-sensing tech at play, social media dons might be onto a winner this time… • Third eye The third-gen Spectacles feature familiar round lenses, but swap the plastic frames for steel – available in carbon or mineral (black or gold to normal people). Tap either button to video up to 60 seconds or press and hold for a still; a little LED will light up to show filming has commenced and everyone is now a potential victim. Sync the glasses to your smartphone, edit as you see fit, and fire content over to Snapchat or export for uploading elsewhere. • Eye eye What sets the…

1 Miximum £free or £1.99 / iOS You might hate iTunes, but it’s great for dynamic playlists. Miximum brings similar smarts to iOS, and lets you construct playlists using rules rather than dragging and dropping tracks like a caveman. 2 321Fit £free / Android, iOS Borrowing from music players, 321Fit presents workouts as customisable playlists. It further encourages you through a blocky Teletext-style man working out, and loads of retro beeps. 3 Face Pause, Face Tube £free / Android These twin apps pause your Android’s screen whenever you have the audacity to remove your gaze from it. Handy for video, perhaps, but also foreshadowing a terrifying future for advertising. 4 Start with Yoga £2.99 / Apple Watch Yoga apps don’t always help you relax, considering the pounding they give your wallet with IAP subs. This one’s different: a one-off charge, and…
