Today the next generation of Samsung smartphone technology has been revealed in the Samsung GALAXY S 4.

Samsung GALAXY S 4 Hands-on

If this year's Mobile World Congress taught us one thing, it's that no matter how interesting and innovative the gadget makers and software developers of our global community are, it's the top brands that end up making or breaking the show. Make or break the show for the press, that is.

In fact, they didn't have a stand - the chat we had wasn't even on the map. And yet, there it is - Google stole the show anyway.
