Recently the annual Mobile World Congress event took place at Barcelona. The latest smartphones, tablets, iPADS and other technological devices of 2014 were showcased on the show. The traditional Global Mobile awards also took place. More than 175 independent analysts, journalists, academics and subject matter experts throughout the world participated in this event to judge the best devices. Samsung Galaxy S5 because of its high end specifications and features was regarded as the best smartphone of 2014.
Phones and tablets editor Gareth Beavis explains,
“This was easily the hardest category to judge, as there were a lot of
great choices on show. Both Sony and Samsung’s phones have lots of really great features and will be big hitters this year, while HTC managed to offer something impressive at a mid range price point.
“But the overall combination of power and features users actually want over the useless, gimmicky ‘innovation’ seen on S4,
swung it for us.”
The phone became the talk of the entire show. No one could beat Samsung Glaxy S5 in terms of desirability. It is expected to be available in the mobile market in the first half of year 2014. Gareth talked about the phone at the show:
“It’s only fitting a phone should win Best in Show at MWC, and the Galaxy S5 is a phone that a lot of people will be proud to own.The need for a standout feature on a new smartphone has diminished in recent times, and now users are getting phones that actually do what they need them to, which the S5 embodies well.”
