LG Cleaned Up at Mobile World Congress with 33 awards

So, it's something we discussed during our hangout the other day, that it's not about having the highest or biggest stats, it's about having some cool innovation in what you do bring to the table.  Make it smarter, not bigger.

And nobody seemed to do it better than LG.  As much as that's my opinion, it also seemed to be the opinion of several folks at Mobile World Congress, as they raked in dozens of awards, including:

 - Best Mobile Handset (LG G5)
 - Best of MWC 2016
 - Best Smartphone
 - Best Innovation
 - Most Innovative
 - Top Tech of 2016

Who do you think took the brass ring at MWC?

The wins highlighted the Modular Type innovation behind LG’s latest flagship smartphone, the LG G5 and Friends, demonstrating that the company is at the forefront of mobile communications. LG G5 and Friends earned top honours from Android Authority, Digital Trends, Trusted Reviews and Ubergizmo, among others.

“The initial response to our new LG G5 has been phenomenal and rewards the effort our experts have made to create something genuinely innovative and unique in the smartphone space,” said Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “The G5 and its Friends modules are aimed at giving consumers a more playful smartphone experience and these awards suggest that we have offered something truly different in the market.”
