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.
