Discuss: What were your favorite announcements at Mobile World Congress 2017?

This week, the GSMA held its annual Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, where companies from across the global mobile industry congregated to discuss the next big thing - from 5G networks to the Internet of Things - as well as showing off their latest and greatest devices.

Indeed, there was no shortage of exciting new devices unveiled at the event - from highly capable high-end phones, to well-designed mid-range handsets, and notebooks to suit a range of budgets... as well as a remarkable blast from the past.

For me, the new Nokia 3310 certainly won my affections, tugging at my sense of nostalgia - but I'm not sure how much I'll actually love the device after spending some time with it in the real world. I'm already a big fan of the LG G6, though - its display is beautiful, and the camera takes some truly excellent photos, even on the pre-production unit supplied to us by the company this week.

Lenovo's new Moto G5 and G5 Plus also impressed me with their thoughtful and fun design features. And among Lenovo's new Windows 10 machines, my favorite was the entry-level Miix 320 - an attractive small tablet with a detachable keyboard and superb build quality, priced as low as $199.99. I'm really looking forward to trying that device out in the real world!

But there were all sorts of other announcements at MWC besides those, including new super-fast battery charging technology from Meizu, and Sony's unusual €1,500 portable Android projector, which offers just one hour of battery life. You can find out more about what was announced at MWC in our full coverage of the event here.

We'd love to hear what your favorites were at MWC - what excited or delighted you the most? Was there a particular device that you're looking forward to buying? A new technology that you're keen to try out? A new machine that you're determined to save up for and treat yourself to? Or just something that you really like the look of?
