In Pictures: Best new technology from Mobile World Congress 2014

Smartphones, tablets, wearables on display at the show

Samsung Galaxy S5 Samsung tweaked rather than overhauled its flagship smartphone. The S5 is dust-and-water-resistant, has a faster 2.5-GHz quad-core processor, still with 2GB RAM, and Android 4.4. The 5.1-inch screen has the same 1920 by 1080 pixel resolution as the S3; storage options are 16G or 32GB, along with a microSD slot. New: a fingerprint scanner, and a main camera with higher specs, like 16 instead of 13 megapixels. Networking: category 4 LTE and 802.11ac with MIMO. It has something called “download booster,” which allegedly boosts data speeds by “bonding Wi-Fi and LTE,” according to Samsung. Battery life: up to 10 hours on LTE. Available: April 11.

LIFEBOOK UH574

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

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
