The best new phones and tablets from MWC 2017

We're back from the halls of MWC 2017 in Barcelona, where most of the year's biggest smartphones, tablets and portable devices were announced and displayed for the first time. We walked the length of the Fira Gran Via to bring you a round-up of some of our favourites.

We managed to get our hands on most of the big launches at the show, including the world's first 4K HDR smartphone, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium, the world's first phone to support Dolby Vision, the LG G6 and Samsung's new iPad rival, the HDR10-packing Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 - complete with AKG-tuned speakers.

There was also the Nokia 6, fresh from its overwhelming success in China, the budget Moto G5 and G5 Plus from Motorola, and an impressive new flagship from Huawei in the shape of the P10.

Verity is a freelance technology journalist and former Multimedia Editor at What Hi-Fi?. 

Having chalked up more than 15 years in the industry, she has covered the highs and lows across the breadth of consumer tech, sometimes travelling to the other side of the world to do so. With a specialism in audio and TV, however, it means she's managed to spend a lot of time watching films and listening to music in the name of "work".

You'll occasionally catch her on BBC Radio commenting on the latest tech news stories, and always find her in the living room, tweaking terrible TV settings at parties.
