The International Mobile World Congress 2014 which was held in Barcelona, Spain earlier this week hosted the unveiling of a number of smartphones and other products like wearable computing devices.
Almost all smartphone manufacturers, except a few like Apple, showcased their devices. However manufacturers like LG, Sony, Nokia and Samsung and others made thousands of attendees excited, and attracted a lot of fans from around the world by showcasing their latest devices a the very event.
Thus today GizBot has come up with a number of devices which actually rocked the show. However, it should be noted that we have only taken 5 best smartphones from the entire lot (which is quite a large number).
All these devices come with high-end specs and although these companies have not revealed the prices of these devices as of now, the price tag these devices are going to bear will definitely be hefty. Since we have only taken the high-end phones, we are forced to exclude the Nokia X series of smartphones which are likely to come with affordable price tags. Also the wearable computing devices have been omitted in this line-up.
