Now that we’re through the MWC hump, it’s time to shift focus. We’ve got our Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, and HTC gave us the One M9 as expected. Motorola let loose a really good mid-range device, the Moto E with LTE, ahead of MWC, so that leaves LG to bring us a new Android handset.
And so the Mobile World Congress 2015 comes to a close and now we're left to pick up the pieces of a whirlwind week.

But there are really quite a few that really piqued our interest and earned our applause.
Though we weren’t expecting a whole lot, Mobile World Congress was actually rather delightful this year. We got exactly what we came for, and even some additional surprises from top OEMs and others. There were some obvious highlights, like the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, but some other highlights like Jolla’s new tablet.
The HTC One M9 is coming, even if the company can’t quite get their existing handsets updated to the latest version of Android on time.

MWC 2015 is coming, so LG is doing what it does best: announcing new devices even before the event takes place. The Korean manufacturer may not have an LG G4 prepared next week, but it will try to make us forget about that by distracting us with other devices.
The HTC One M9 is finally here at MWC 2015 and, depending on your particularly focus on smartphones, you may be tickled pink or disappointed.

What does it take to create a smartphone design classic? For the HTC One M9 , the answer is relentless refinement, improving what worked in its metal-bodied predecessors rather than chasing the latest trends.

Now that the HTC One M9 is official, you might be wondering if it’s time to upgrade. Sporting all the latest specs, like a Snapdragon 810 octa-core CPU and 3GB RAM, might make you wonder if it’s that much better than your current phone.
