MWC 2014

Mobile World Congress saw almost every major company in the smartphone, tablet and consumer technology markets announce major new devices, shown off to thousands of journalists, analysts and key players in the mobile industry.

Samsung stole the show with the highly-anticipated Galaxy S5 and two new smartwatches - but as we found out, the new smartphone isn't the major leap forward many were hoping for.

Elsewhere, Nokia CEO Stephen Elop announced the Nokia X range of budget smartphones running a heavily modified version of Android, blending the look and feel of Windows Phone with the large application catalogue of Android.

Sony updated its Z1 flagship to become the Z2, while Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg attracted thousands of journalists to the event's opening keynote.

IBTimes UK visited MWC, interviewed the most important companies and tried out the latest gadgets - and below we have rounded up everything the show had to offer.
