Year in, year out, Mobile World Congress has been the go-to event for announcements on the newest smartphones with top-of-the-line mobile technology.

There’s a saying that goes “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery,” but Snapchat may not be feeling all too flattered after another blatant move to copy one of the app’s more popular features.
The feature, Snapchat Stories — a public compilation of snaps from a user’s day.
The culprit, Facebook. Yep, following Snapchat Stories clones finding their way to Instagram and Messenger (both Facebook properties), the world’s largest social network is bringing Snapchat’s bread and butter over to WhatsApp.

Let’s recap Huawei’s spectacular 2016: The company shipped an impressive 140 million smartphones last year; its flagship P9 sold over 10 million units; it was right behind Apple in smartphone profits; and its third-place position in the global market was secured.

Google’s got a doodle game that will tickle your heartstrings right before Valentine’s Day. And I say tickle because single or otherwise, this game will hitch those smiles right up your ears.

The world’s largest smartphone market hasn’t been so fond of iPhones lately. It was a close fight, but Apple has finally been overtaken by China’s very own brands.
Apple products may be a global force, but penetration hasn’t been too good in India. That’s because Apple is required to have at least 30 percent of its units manufactured in India for the company to be allowed to sell in physical stores.
