The Mobile World Congress came and went and now that the dust has settled it’s time to take a look at some of the hottest topics of this very busy week.
We won’t be focusing as much on the phone launches of MWC 2019 here – you can check out ourcomprehensive list of all the new phones here.

The extra-wide 4″ AMOLED display wraps around your wrist – it’s by far the largest screen on a smart wearable yet.
