Welcome to the third edition of Android Advisor, in which we take a look at the three flagship smartphones vying for your attention this year: HTC's brand-new One M8, the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony's Xperia Z2. We present our verdict on which is the best ever smartphone.
Mobile World Congress kicked off in Barcelona at the end of February. The technology tradeshow serves as a launchpad for some of the latest and greatest smartphones, tablets and wearable tech running the Android operating system. We round up the various product announcements.
Of course, a lot has happened in the mobile world since then. We look at three new and incredibly exciting products launching very soon.
First off, Google's finally jumped aboard the wearable-tech bandwagon, announcing its Google Wear smartwatch OS, seen on the Motorola Moto 360 and LG G Watch. Then there's the Nexus 8 – has Google really dumped its 7in tablet? And finally, LG's upcoming G3 smartphone, which is expected to pack a screen so tight with pixels it will leave the S5, One M8 and Xperia Z2 shaking in their boots.
