Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? As it happens, there is now an escape from reality and we’ve tested and rated the two largest pieces of tech that will give you that escape. That’s right, virtual reality (VR) is here, it’s expensive, and it’s bloody amazing. Stuff goes hands-on with both the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive, while previewing and reviewing the games and apps you’re going to want to use. And since that’s not nearly enough, we’ve got an early look at the PlayStation VR to boot.
That’s not enough to satisfy a Stuff technomancer so we’ve come packed to the hilt with more. Like Apple’s most affordable phone in ages, the iPhone SE. We go to town on the handset and give you the lowdown on whether buying budget from Apple is a good thing. Misstep or a perfect sprint? You’ll find out in the June Stuff Magazine. Oh, and we’re also taking a detailed look at the 9.7in iPad Pro, if you’re in the market for a tablet replacement.
While we’re comparing Apples to Apples, we’re also comparing Androids to Androids – comparing Apples to Androids comes later. That’s right, we’ve got an ultraphone test on the books in this month’s… er… book? Samsung’s supercharged Galaxy S7 versus LG’s modular G5 versus HTC’s perfect 10 in a winner-take-all rumble of epic proportions. Want the best of 2016’s mobiles (so far)? This is where you’ll find them.
All work and no play makes everyone at Stuff inclined to drink around lunchtime. But we’ve got a remedy for that. Besides the loaded VR games section, Stuff has the games that you need to play this month. Naughty Dog’s Uncharted 4 is the highlight but if you’re after something tougher than Nate’s final outing then we also have Dark Souls III to challenge your patience muscle. It’s next to the delts, we think.
You want more? We have more. Hot Stuff, a wooden car (made by Toyota and totally drivable), drone tests, Mercedes’s G350 and everything you need to survive a long-haul flight (noise-cancelling headphones are your friend) are just a few of the items that await your perusal. Get all of this, and more, in the June 2016 issue of Stuff Magazine – In stores right now.
