Earlier this week, I spent a few days walking about Barcelona and Mobile World Congress‘ venue, the Fira Gran Via. I headed back to the hotel after the first day of the actual show with strongly mixed feelings. For one, this being my first international fair meant that I could just not let go of the excitement, and the energy and passion so many people bring among those booths is tangible.

On the other, I had to do my job and check out all the new smartphones announced in these past few days, and this is where things got a little uglier. The P10 I first previewed proved to be a big red warning sign of things to come, and although I am not entirely dissatisfied, I definitely can’t say that the products matched the enthusiasm and vibe of the place itself…

So here’s the thing with the P10: it is a good phone. Maybe even a great one by some standards. But I know that after having played just a few hours with it, which — to me — immediately signaled something. Remember when I talked about the OnePlus 4, how the “smartphone 1.0” era was over and that manufacturers really had to step up their game to bring something genuinely exciting to the table?

Well that, my friends, is not the case here. The P10 is definitely a 1.0 era smartphone. But whether that’s good or bad, of course, will depend on you…

LG’s forthcoming G6 flagship isn’t much of a secret anymore, and it seems the Korean firm wants to make sure that there’s absolutely nothing we don’t know about it when it launches at MWC next week. Now, LG has come out with a couple short and sweet teaser videos making it clear that the phone will feature water and dust resistance.

Barcelona’s famous fair, the Mobile World Congress, is just around the corner. As always, (almost) all the big names in mobile will join the party to show the latest and greatest coming out of their R&D. And while Samsung’s absence may represent a hit for the general vibe of the coming days, there will certainly be no shortage of new products and announcements.

So let’s dig through them a bit…

lg-g6-orr

We showed you some more hands-on images of the LG G6 earlier today, and they got me thinking a bit more about LG’s coming MWC launch event, where the company will show us the successor to its unfortunate failure of an attempt to make modular smartphones mainstream.

In short, I can’t help but wonder why the LG G6 exists. It’s basically just a rehashed LG V20, and that makes the G6 even more boring than it would have already been if the LG V20 never existed.

As ‘release season’ approaches, I’m finding myself extremely excited for one phone in particular, the LG G6. Even though last year’s LG G5 didn’t win over most people, I found myself in love with the company’s later attempt, the LG V20. Now, as the LG G6 approaches with a lack of bezels, the addition of waterproofing, and more, I can’t wait to check out this phone. Now, LG is confirming more details about the phone, only stoking the fire…

You know that Lenovo is close to unveiling their new devices when retailers start to accidentally leak them online. This happened today when the Moto G5 Plus showed up on a Spanish electronic retailer’s website.
