What is your favorite new phone from MWC 2017?

Mobile World Congress 2017, or simply MWC17, the biggest mobile show in the world is not over just yet, but we have already seen all the new phone announcements and it's time to see which one can have the honor of being crowned 'the people's favorite'.

This time around you have plenty of choice: LG unveiled its G6, the first mainstream 'full-screen' phone, Sony followed up with its Xperia XZ Platinum, a phone with a 4K (yes, 4K!) display and the Snapdragon 835 system chip, Huawei showed two new phones that have been meticulously crafted, Nokia resurrected the legendary 3310, Moto refreshed some of the best affordable phones on the market and ZTE unveiled a 5G phone for the future. It feels like we are drowning in new phones and you can help us get out of that overwhelming choice by helping us pick the ones that have grabbed your attention.

Voting ends on Friday and we'll also publish the results then, but until then our virtual voting station is open, and so is the comment section right below.

XZ Premium/G6/Moto G5 plus.

800$ for G6 is totally BS. G6 is DOA.

XZ premium shows promise but it might get delayed and if it doesn't launch before S8 announcement, everyone will forget about it.

Moto G5 plus is definitely the best device yet this year. 1080p screen, super efficient SD625, GS7/pixel grade camera and pure stock android for less than 300$ is amazing.

Not exactly. The cheapest variant of G5 plus will cost around 230$.

And why pay 100$ more when you get what you want for this price. For most users, this phone should be enough. Oneplus 3 is a better phone which costs more, which is fine. And I'm a OP3 owner.

OnePlus 3 is a better phone which doesn't cost much more than the G5 Plus... FTFY

The big down side of the OnePlus 3 or 3T is Oxygen OS. Or now they are making a new OS version called Hydrogen OS. Same crap different day.

I second you. The way they were talking about it before was like this thing was gonna be $650-$700 max. No way at this price, S8 will likely smash this barring it be cheaper in the US and the S8 be $800+

That G6 is ugly like the G5, even it's more ugly by making the inner screen curved. Instead off diagonal.

Whatever Phone you find best, we can agree it's going to be a great year for smartphones.

Nokia is back where it should be, Blackberry making waves with a stylish and functional device, and LG kicking off the bezel removal.

My one disappointment is Sammy smuggling the initial shipment of 835s, the G6 would be a wonderful alternative but without the latest processor it won't perform the best it could had they delayed release by a month or 2. And Sammy should invest more in their Exynos processors, they make their phones better in some aspects over the SD. So why not let the U.S. see their power and let Qualcomm deal with other companies while saving a few $$$

Blackberry KEYone was by far the most interesting.

Why

Same here. While it's interesting what the G6 improved on, the KEYone is the most refreshing.

Voted Keyone although won't buy it.

The S650 along with the weak Gpu is a big no...

tbh, the sd625's gpu is weaker than the s650's gpu.

The xz premuim deserves it. The 4K HDR display and new 19mp sensor sounds great, as well as choosing the 835 than 821. I would give the runner up for the g5 plus, it has excellent specs at reasonable price. Hope it wil land in my country!

Except for its screen size which is a bit small for my taste, the Xperia XZ Premium has got what it takes to last 2017 with no problems at all (hopefully)

Honestly, all of these devices were awesome at MWC, but if I had to pick one, it would be the LG G6!!

Dont hate. Sony out did the bezeless G6 and every other phone released. Its a power house!

KeyOne is interesting.

KeyOne is in my opinion the best way to succeed where the Passport left off, and is by far the most unique phone aside from the refreshed 3310. Nokia is a close shave though, as they are one of the very few who put out elegantly crafted lower mid to mid range phones.

1) KEYOne 2) P10/P10 Plus 3) Tie between the Nokia 6 and the Moto G5/G5 Plus

Everything else is bland.

Wow, the G6 didn't even make your list.

Nope. There's nothing bad about it, but it lacks anything that grabs my attention.

Don't really feel comfortable with displays beyond 5.5". I'm going with Huawei P10. It does even have a navigation button like my current phone.

I think I am most interested in the Huawei then the Sony and then LG G6.

Definitely.... But 4Gb Ram, instead of 6gb Ram. Screw you Sony.

If RAM is all you want, buy 128 GB RAM Drives and attach it to your phone.
