Weekend poll: What phone do you think stole the show at MWC 2017?

MWC 2017 is over, and now we all know what was unveiled. Sony, Motorola, LG, Nokia, BlackBerry Huawei, and others all unveiled new smartphones ranging from the most basic to flagship-level, and this weekend's poll will have you pick among some of the most prominent contenders for a winner.

To give you a brief rundown, the highlights were: the LG G6, Sony's Xperia XZ Premium, BlackBerry's KeyONE, Huawei's P10, Nokia's various Android phones (and the 3310), and Moto's G5 and G5 Plus.

LG G6 hands-on: LG asks for a G5 do-over

To put it gently, the G5 was a controversial smartphone. Many took issue with LG's modular approach, which came at the expense of ruggedization, battery capacity, and, well, expense. But even disregarding its most-cited flaw, the G5 simply wasn't a smartphone that was appreciably better at just being a smartphone than much of its competition - and that's certainly part of what sank it. I won't belabor the point, but after using the G6 for some time (albeit in preproduction guise), I think LG really has taken criticism of the G5 seriously. (Perhaps a little too seriously in some ways.)

[Update: Carrier availability] LG announces the G6: 5.7" 18:9 screen, Snapdragon 821, Android 7.1, and dual-13MP cameras

LG announced the G6 in Barcelona at MWC 2017 today, confirming the heavily leaked handset's existence. Specifications are largely as expected, but LG has not announced specific pricing or availability information today. (For the US, you can probably expect that news to come via individual carriers, not LG.) The phone will come in three colors - white, silver, and black.

The G6's 5.7" QHD (2880x1440, 564PPI) LCD display - with HDR10 and Dolby Vision support - is configured in an 18:9 aspect ratio, making the phone actually slightly slimmer than the outgoing G5, while the display itself grows taller.

Qualcomm leaks the LG G6 in all its glory less than a day before launch

It's pretty much impossible for a smartphone to launch these days sans leaks, and LG's G6 is no different. The upcoming flagship has already been exposed several times, both through renders and in the flesh. However, these are the most detailed pictures we've seen yet, and they leave essentially nothing to the imagination.
