Huawei’s Honor 10 GT to feature 8GB of RAM

Sorry, entry-level laptop. You’ve had a good run but smartphones are about to start hitting the market with double your usual RAM allocation. It’s time we said goodbye. And we’re not even kidding, as Chinese smartphone maker Honor has announced the Honor 10 GT — the first smartphone from the company to launch with 8GB of RAM. An upgrade of the Huawei Honor 10, which launche...[Read More]

Asus Blue Cave AC2600 dual-band Wi-Fi router review – Impractically pretty to look at

Network routers are the dark secret of the tech world. Odds are, unless you’re completely mobile dongle-dependent, you own one of these pieces of gear and you’ve probably arranged matters so that you don’t actually have to look at it. Unless you’re peering at the lights, wondering why your magic internet box has stopped working, that is. This isn’t because these devic...[Read More]

Samsung Galaxy Note 9: What we know so far

We know it’s coming, it’s just a matter of time. It’s a bit like a student loan statement when you were really hoping to eat this month or an overly large tide bearing down on the extravagant castle you built below the high-water mark. Samsung will announce the Galaxy Note 9 soon and we’re expecting… more or less exactly what’s already known about the handset. T...[Read More]

We really want to get our hands on the Oppo Find X Lamborghini edition

Chinese smartphone manufacturer Oppo, which is one of Huawei’s largest competitors, has just announced its newest handset — the Oppo Find X. And we want one. The trouble is, we’re going to have to go to Europe to get one. But it might be worth the trip, especially if you a) have the cash to burn and b) are a Lamborghini fan. In addition to announcing the standard Find X (pictured...[Read More]

Lenovo’s Thinkpad P52 is a bomber of a notebook, packing 128GB of RAM

We might be showing our ages a little but we remember a time when 16MB of RAM for a computer was a normal thing. A 500MB hard drive used to be more than enough storage space. Back then, a computer with 128GB of RAM was unthinkable. These days… not so much. Lenovo has revealed their new Thinkpad P52 notebook, a high-end notebook that has been designed to function as a mobile VR-ready workstat...[Read More]

Acer announces its top-end Intel-powered Predator Helios 500 gaming notebook

Acer, at an event in New York yesterday, revealed the devices that we can expect to see from the company for the next few months. Leading the pack, in performance as well as (probable) pricing is Acer’s new high-end Intel-toting gaming notebook flagship, the Predator Helios 500. An evolution of the Predator Helios 300 which launched last year — yes, even here in South Africa — th...[Read More]

Sony Xperia L2 – If wide-angle selfies are your thing…

Something that we don’t see all that often from Sony, or other smartphone makers, are handsets that are a little lower down on the specifications ladder. Stuff often has its hands on the best of the best but rarely gets to play with the rest. Which is a terrible shame, because there are some lovely phones out there that don’t require the sale of a major internal organ in order to take ...[Read More]

Mint Connect Pearl Neo – This is what an R800 phone looks like

The Mint Connect Pearl Neo is one of the cheapest Android 7 smartphones that you’ll find on the South African market today. It clocks in at just R800, is available from Pep Stores, and has… pretty much all the bits attached. Usually when a phone is sub-R1,000 something is missing. Maybe there’s no front camera, perhaps it’s not running Android (at all), or something else ha...[Read More]

Hisense Infinity F24 – This is just a tribute…

The folks are Stuff are a spoiled lot. We handle more handsets than an octopus with a severe case of FOMO and a truck full of fish-flavoured iPhones. As such, we get to see what the best devices in each company’s stable are capable of. Eventually, all that high-end hardware does result in a craving for something a little less… overpowered, though. Not everyone can use an iPhone X or a ...[Read More]

Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra – A big-screen contender in the mid-range war

If you’re after a Sony smartphone, and we mean really after one, then you are probably going to be waiting on the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact devices that were announced at this year’s MWC. We get it — some users are keen on Sony’s premium lineup and nothing else. That said, there is still some benefit to looking a little down the tier to devices like the new Sony Xperia XA2...[Read More]

CliffCentral unWired wireless earphones – Affordable buds for your lugholes

At the Stuff offices we’re accustomed to receiving loads of tech from around the world but almost nothing that is primarily South African. Even Vodacom’s series of smartphones are designed and released as Vodafone devices in the UK before getting here. So getting a pair of CliffCentral.com’s unWired earphones was a bit of a strange experience. Gareth Cliff on the box, CliffCentra...[Read More]
