It’s been a busy week but we all ended up covering the new announcements from Barcelona and all the hands-on experiences we’ve had with the new smartphones unveiled over the past few days. So, as we wrap up, we were wondering – which new phone made the best impression on you?
Here we’ll include the phones that were announced at MWC, as well as devices that are already on the way and expanding into the global market. We have divided them into categories so that you can vote for the best ones.
As already mentioned, we have hands-on reports from most of the new releases, and even some reviews (written and/or video reviews). Since there are so many devices to follow, we won’t go into detail here but instead summarize everything in handy tables that list prices, link to specs, and additional coverage.
We’ll start with Major. Honor has unveiled its new Magic5 series and the triple cameras of the vanilla and Pro models compete with the Leica-branded cameras of the Xiaomi 13 and 13 Pro. The Xiaomi 13 and 13 Pro have been on sale in China for a while now, but the company announced their global rollout this week. It’s a similar story with the Realme GT3, although it also changed its name from GT Neo 5.

Next, folding. There are only two of them, but outside of China you won’t find many horizontal foldables that don’t have the “Galaxy” name, so two of them are actually quite a number. Honor is launching its Magic Vs repeat phone globally while Tecno is debuting its first-ever foldable Phantom V Fold, with an upcoming launch in India (supposedly expanding to other regions later).

Moving on to the middle guards. Xiaomi 13 Lite is a brand new device that was not announced along with the other two models of the 13 series in December. It is against vivo V27 and V27 Pro. All three highlight the selfie camera and use a mid-range chipset (the brand-new Dimensity 7200 for the V27 and the rare Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 for Xiaomi).

We’ll conclude with the new entry phones. Here we have the vivo V27e, three Nokias including the G22, which is built for repair and a C-series pair of Go Edition phones, as well as a number of TCL phones bound for the US – the X and XE have 5G connectivity, in fact the XE is the cheapest 5G phone From TCL so far. Other models are 4G only.
