Sony at MWC 2015

Sony Xperia M4 Aqua

Sony has apparently changed the way it will invest in the smartphones in 2015. At least that's what we can feel with the release of its newest mid-range, the Xperia M4 Aqua. The handset was announced during MWC 2015 and despite the very similar design features of the Xperia Z3 and above average hardware, this smartphone keeps the cost benefit.

Samsung at MWC 2015

Galaxy S6

He was expected to be one of the stars of MWC 2015, and when it was shown the Samsung Galaxy S6 really did not disappoint: noble design, materials premium (glass and metal), simplified and intuitive interface, wireless charging, and more. The S6 has everything to be one of the year's blockbusters. That is if your price does not disturb.

Galaxy S6 Edge

The S6 Edge also garnered public and critical acclaim on the first day of the fair. The device can look even prettier than the S6, and the smart curved screen functions (on both sides) promise to win over even the most skeptical. The only problem remains the price, which can greatly restrict your market.

HTC at MWC 2015

HTC One M9

HTC does not market its devices in Brazil, but tech fans know that HTC One M8 was one of the best smartphones of last year. Therefore, the expectation for the release of its successor was high. We cannot say that the HTC One M9 has disappointed, but it has not impressed the Barcelona public. The Taiwanese company may have relied too much on the successful formula of the HTC One M8, and made the same mistake Samsung made with the S5. Our full review will take the test and see if the M9 really is just a rehashed idea with some hardware upgrades.
