Stuff Middle East - - News -

Sum­mer is of­fi­cially upon us.

So while most of the rest of the north­ern hemi­sphere is frol­ick­ing out­doors or hit­ting the beach, for us in the Mid­dle East it means only one thing - time to crank up the air con­di­tion­ing, grab the pop­corn and set­tle in for a cou­ple months of Net­flix binge-watch­ing hi­ber­na­tion.

What’s that, you’re still stuck with an old-fash­ioned HD set? For shame. 4K TVs are cheaper and more ac­ces­si­ble than they’ve ever been and, as we see it, you’ve got two choices: cosy up to that work col­league who has more money than sense (you know the one), or dili­gently pour over our ul­ti­mate 4K TV buyer’s guide on p30. What­ever amount you’re look­ing to spend, we’ve picked out the per­fect screen for you.

Once you’ve se­lected your new telly, you should then flip to p39 and have a peep at our com­pre­hen­sive list of 25 must-watch 4K shows and movies. They look so sharp that whether you’re a streamer or a disc-buyer, th­ese will make you se­ri­ously re­con­sider your cur­rent Blu-ray col­lec­tion. Of course, if you’re go­ing to dive head-first into the world of ul­tra high def­i­ni­tion, then you’re go­ing to want a 4K screen you can carry around in your pocket. The new Sony Xpe­ria flag­ship is just that, and we’ve got a full re­view on p44. Plus, we have the lat­est and great­est games from this year’s E3 (p18), not least of which saw the un­veil­ing of the Xbox One X (p6), Mi­crosoft’s beefy new, you guessed it, 4K-ready con­sole. Time for an up­grade, you don’t want to be left be­hind. En­joy the mag. Mike Priest, Ed­i­tor mike@mo­ti­vate.ae @MikePri­est
