Best of MWC 2014: smartphones, tablets, and wearables
0. phoneArena 27 Feb 2014, 04:57 posted on
The 2014 edition of the MWC treated us to some amazing new devices, and we're most certainly looking forward to checking them out in the coming months. All of them, and that's saying a lot, since the expo had something for pretty much everybody. We have high-end smartphones, mid-range smartphones, low-end smartphones, tablets, wearables, the whole shebang! We even have some 'indie' devices in the YotaPhone 2 and the supposedly NSA-proof Blackphone...

cmon yotaphone was best. i think s5 was not such a great upgrade. still note 3 and galaxy j are superior to it besides that fingerprint scanner. hr sensor is useless. (cause rhytm is more important than rate in medicine). z2 was totally better than s5. still note 3 is king and it will only be bested by note 4.

only design is not good .... otherwise s5 is a beast with useful features like heart rate monitor

heart rate monitor is useless.(in the way samsung had implemented it) heart rhytm is what needs to be monitored in patients. there are tons of apps that can help you find your hr within 6 seconds. its useless cause its not constant.

This year was probably the most exciting and most disappointing MWC yet.

Z2 is the winner. Z2 swipes the floor with that sexy body, stereo speakers and splendid screen. S5's design is even worse than S4. Much dissapointment.

No wonder your screen name is xperiaDROID.
There are lot of good devices, but the worst was Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet.
In 2014, FHD screen in a tablet is pathetic. Not to forget hopeless 6000 mAh battery.

But... you can slice bread with it and have 3hrs of SoC UNDER WATER BABY!!!

My screen name xperiaDROID doesn't mean that I'm a Sony fanboy. Now let me explain to a newbie why my screen name is xperiaDROID, my first smartphone was a Sony Xperia smartphone, the Sony Xperia P, and I like Android, so Xperia + Android = xperiaDROID.
I admit I'm a Sony fan, but not the biased one, and my screen name doesn't mean by that. So how about you? rd_nest? A rude dude that lives in a nest? LOL...Yeah, I'm just following your logic.
No matter what you say, Xperia Z2 Tablet is still one of my favorite devices at MWC 2014. It's my favorite, not yours. If you think I'm a biased Sony fanboy, you're wrong.

Full HD is not pathetic at all. Unless it's 4K, nothing over 1080p is not needed. The same thing goes for any other device like phones, laptops, TVs and so on.

Lol just as i said, phonearena and other sites did not complain anything about cheap plastic, but they say more premium than galaxy s4(which i dont agree). Looks like samsung paid truckloads to attendees.
