Call us traditional, but we thought we’d wait until the end of the year to pick our favourite gadgets of 2018. It’s this sort of sensible, pragmatic thinking that helped us agree on the cream of the tech crop from the past 12 months with only one group counselling session…

Woop-woop! That’s the sound of da police! The rozzers are after us because the Honor 8X is an absolute steal of a smartphone. You might be tempted to run a mile when you see the word ‘budget,’ but don’t be fooled by the Honor 8X’s tiny price tag, because this bad boy packs a helluva punch.

Compared to rivals like the Moto One and Nokia 7.1, the Honor 8X is streets ahead, sporting a bigger screen (6.5in) than both, a Kirin 710 processor with noticeably more power, a beefier battery and more megapixels for detailed pictures.

We love getting more for less, and that’s precisely why we adore the Honor 8X.

We’ve raved about the Huawei P20 Pro for what seems like an eternity, so it was high time something knocked it off its perch. And from the moment we grasped this feature-packed mobile in our mitts, the Stuff team were smitten by the obscene amount of tech squeezed into its slender frame.

That spec is stunning in its own right: a 6.39in curved OLED display; in-screen fingerprint scanner; IR-based face recognition; and a whip-smart Kirin 980 processor. But the star is the three-lens camera array. With the 40MP main RGB lens, a 8MP telephoto and a 20MP Leica ultra-wide-angle, the Mate 20 Pro becomes a playground for photographers.
