What I Saw at Mwc 14

For those of you who didn’t know, I went to Barcelona last week to take a look at Mobile World Congress (MWC), where they show off all of the latest smartphones in an effort to get some extra publicity, and make us all a bit jealous.

So, in an effort to do my job properly, I’d better show you all what I saw at the Spain based event shouldn’t I?

The Nokia X

This was the first place I went to after getting access to the event, being a pretty big Nokia fan; I wanted to see just how much of an effect Android has had on the feel of the smartphones.

The first thing worth mentioning is that you simply can’t tell it’s an Android phone; in fact it still seems like more of a Windows Phone in my opinion, probably because Microsoft wouldn’t want its own company producing a massively differed OS.

In general, the handset felt great, ran smoothly and looked good, despite not being a flagship model and was definitely worth getting a look at.

Sony Xperia Z2

This was my second stop at MWC, and this mainly comes down to the fact that it was the first flagship handset I had the chance to get my hands on.

The similarities between this handset and the Z2 are striking, with the design only seeing some slight tweaks, but under the hood you can see a real improvement.

The RAM is up to 3GB and the camera is even better than before, offering tons of brand new features including time shift video.

This feature allowed me to slow down a specific part of a video clip, which would be truly phenomenal for sporting shots or holiday videos.

LG G Pro 2

My personal favourite from the event, the LG G Pro 2 shocked me with its brilliant design, smooth speeds and camera, and definitely impressed me, despite its larger size.

In fact, I was so impressed by it, that I’m genuinely considering investing in it when my upgrade is due, which says a lot.

One feature I loved was the Knock to unlock feature, where you set up a combination of touch screen knocks to unlock the phone, rather than entering a code.

It’s worth noting as well that the LG G Flex is also a beautiful smartphone and offers similar specs with a curved screen and both handsets are worth trying out.

Samsung Galaxy S5

This handset really did steal the show, and it was always going to considering the amount of time and money the South Korean company put into the phone.

It boasts a perforated back case which is interesting considering the love affair we all seem to have with metal casings right now, but it doesn’t hold it back by any means.

It runs extremely quick and links with the brand new Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 and Gear Fit, both of which look brilliant as well.

All in all, I have to say that I had a great time taking a look at all of these handsets, which obviously made me turn green with envy seeing as I have to wait until June to grab a new handset!
