Nokia made its big come­back at MWC 2017, an­nounc­ing three new An­droid phones for the mid-range mar­ket. We’ve reviewed the Nokia 3, 5 and 6 on pages 13 on­ward, and we were im­pressed with the pure An­droid ex­pe­ri­ence and high build qual­ity each phone of­fered. But the talk of the show was a 17-year-old fea­ture phone that doesn’t even run What­sApp, let alone An­droid. On page 28 we out­line Nokia’s up­dated 3310, the phone you prob­a­bly used to own – and prob­a­bly will want to own again. Plus, it will cost less than £50.

HTC and Sam­sung were no­tably ab­sent from the show, with the Sam­sung Gal­axy S8 and S8+ set to launch later this month and the 2017 HTC flag­ship later in the year. Which meant all eyes were on LG.

Luck­ily, then, the G6 is a gor­geous flag­ship. Gone is that yucky plas­tic mod­u­lar build, and in its place a metal frame and glass front and rear that would put even Xiaomi’s Mi Mix to shame. Cov­er­ing al­most the en­tire front of the de­vice, this 2:1 Quad-HD+ dis­play is a stun­ner. You’ll find our hands-on with the LG G6 on page 4.

MWC isn’t just about phones, of course, and we also saw the an­nounce­ment of the Gal­axy Tab S3 – Sam­sung’s up­date to what was one of the best An­droid tablets money could buy – and a se­lec­tion of An­droid Wear 2.0 watches. Read on for de­tails.
