Which high-end phone likely to be showcased at MWC are you most excited about?

The Mobile World Congress 2016 is fast approaching, and we are already charging up the camera batteries and dusting off our travel gear, ready to invade the world's largest mobile communications expo en masse, dashing across the showfloor from one booth to another.

It will be one for the ages, too. Unlike last year, or the year before that, LG will be challenging Samsung's high-end hegemony directly, unveiling its G5 flagship on the same very day when the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are expected to be announced. This shows a certain level of confidence by Korea's runner-up smartphone giant that hasn't been evident with the last two G-line editions, indicating we might have something truly remarkable in store from LG this time. Indeed, rumors are that it will sport a premium metal chassis and an intriguing modular design, on top of the usual bells and whistles, so we can't wait to handle the G5 in person next week.

As for the Galaxy S7, it should be as good as Samsung can make it, and that means a lot these days - premium design, long battery life and waterproofing are all supposedly in store, but we are most excited about the speculated brand new camera unit with huge sensor on the back. Those two juggernauts won't be the only game in Barcelona, though. Xiaomi should be flaunting its Mi5 there, which could very well be the best value-for-money exchange for a Snapdragon 820-equipped phone, while Huawei, which is now the third-largest cell phone maker, is expected to showcase its own P9 flagship with a dual-camera setup. 

All in all, we might have one of the best MWC experiences in years, starting next week, that is why we wanted to ask you which of these flagship phones that will be potentially unveiled at the expo are you most excited about? Tell us in the poll below, and reveal why in the comments.

G5, although I will most surely not buy it because of enormous size, V10 was excellent in almost every way, now with better SoC and more experience I really think it can beat S7, not in sales, but in quality

What I wanna see in MWC is mostly women. Cause majority of them attracts more than the products that were introduced.

Must be tough being a woman at MWC if you attract over 100 million people.

LG G5 is what Im most excited about, but Mi5 and S7 are also interesting, though I would never get a phone with glass back again.

I want to buy S7E, but I am more excited about G5.

14. TyrionLannister unregistered

G5. Even if it's worse than S7.

Man you have changed, like your profile pic. I prefer the older you.

49. TyrionLannister unregistered

I am the older me. Haven't changed at all. Is this profile pic bad? I thought it's easy to look at given the minimal design.

I've had every Galaxy since the beginning....but...had to go with LG G5. It's truly gotten my attention and I cannot wait to see where LG goes with it. Might just end up being my first LG G series device! So far, S7 and S7 Edge just aren't grasping my attention as much as I had hoped. I a,ready have an Edge+ which has phenomenal battery life/performance, so I may skip out on Samsung this year and wait to see what's in store from them next year.

everyone wants LG to win just because of samsung's dominance in android.

I don't really care since I already purchased a new device recently... I am just following to see how stuff will develop for when its time to upgrade again.

Galaxy S7 design and architecture almost remains same to S6. LG G5 will be complete revamp so people are more curious of it.

We already know a lot about S7 and S7 E, less about G5. G5 seems very different from G4... good surprise to come
