In Pictures: 10 best Android announcements at Mobile World Congress 2013

Even though Samsung’s highly anticipated Galaxy S4 announcement never happened, there were many notable Android-related announcements at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona last week.

The LG Optimus G Pro

No one would complain about using the LG Optimus G Pro, with its brilliant 5.5-inch 1920x1080 HD display. LG didn’t skimp in the phone’s feature set, either: 1.7GHz Qualcomm 600 quad-core processor, at least 32GB of storage, Android Jelly Bean 4.1.1, and a 13-megapixel camera. The two standout features are a 3,100mAh battery and a nifty feature that records from the back-facing and front-facing cameras simultaneously. The LG Optimus G Pro is excellently engineered, nicely built, and an example of just how high the threshold is to build a unique smartphone in the highly competitive Android market.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
