It's a busy overnighter for us here — Motorola is about to take the stage at Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona to introduce its latest phones and gadgets. What will we see? Well, almost certainly the new Moto G5 and G5 Plus.
Mobile World Congress kicks off overnight in Barcelona, and one of the first phone-makers out of the gates is Huawei. Here's the place to watch Huawei's midnight announcement of two new top-of-the-line phones and a brand new smartwatch.

If you read certain tech sites, you'd be forgiven for thinking that the only smartphones worth owning are top-of-the-range flagship models - which is all they ever talk about. In reality, very few people need a smartphone that costs upwards of $1000. For half the price, it's possible to snap up a great handset with all the essential features - including fast performance, an excellent camera and decent battery life.
