Back in Novem­ber of last year I wrote on this very page that the world of smart­phones was more in­ter­est­ing that it had been in a very long time.

Lit­tle did I know that those hal­cyon days of ex­plod­ing hand­sets and nixed head­phone jacks were just the be­gin­ning. Here we sit six month later and the smart­phone game has changed again - we now live in a world where odd screen sizes rule, and dual-lens cam­era set­ups are the new nor­mal. The phones com­ing out of this year’s Mo­bile World Congress were rev­e­la­tory and it’s all very ex­cit­ing.

As one era ends, a new one be­gins. Sam­sung’s Galaxy S8 has en­tered the fray in the bat­tle for dom­i­nance of our smart­phone Top Ten list. Where does it rank against the iPhone 7 Plus, LG G6, and OnePlus 3T? Read our su­pertest on p28 to find out.

What with the Galaxy S8, Nin­tendo Switch and Tesla Model X, this has al­ready been a block­buster year for new kit. And there’s still a cav­al­cade of amaz­ing stuff to come - from Mi­crosoft’s Xbox Project Scorpio to the iPhone’s 10th an­niver­sary. To make sure you don’t miss out on all of the new­est, lat­est and best tech that the rest of 2017 has to of­fer, do the smart thing and visit the re­vamped for up-to-theminute cov­er­age of ev­ery­thing as it hap­pens. In the mean­time though grab a bev­er­age, kick back on the La-Z-Boy and read all about what’s been get­ting our gadget-gland sali­vat­ing this month. En­joy the mag.
