The Mobile World Congress (a.k.a MWC) 2018, one of the biggest events in the mobile industry has just recently ended last Friday in Barcelona. As we look back at the festivities, MWC this year felt a little underwhelming, probably because Samsung stole the show before the event even officially began with the launch of the Galaxy S9. Nevertheless, the show still had its fair share of highlights that is worth talking about. Hence, below are some of the most notable handsets that were seen last week.

Despite being a bit behind the smartphone competition, Windows phones have never failed to exhibit top notch and smooth performance. Which is why it still manages to maintain a solid customer base. The Nokia Lumia 900 is one of the best offering from Nokia that runs on Windows Mobile. If you’re looking for a Windows phone that can keep do it all for you, this is definitely the phone for you.
The Nokia Lumia 900 is powered by 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8055 processor and it comes with 512MB of RAM. The phone packs 16GB of internal storage cannot be expanded. As far as the cameras are concerned, the Nokia Lumia 900 packs a 8-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 1-megapixel front shooter for selfies.
The Nokia Lumia 900 runs Windows Phone 7.5 and is powered by a 1830mAh non removable battery. It measures 127.80 x 68.50 x 11.50 (height x width x thickness) and weighs 160.00 grams.
The Windows Phone 8 has given us plenty to look forward to, but a WP8 upgrade is not on the cards for the Nokia Lumia 900. Both Nokia and Microsoft promise to continue the support though they will most likely be focusing their efforts on multiple-core WP8 smartphones. But don't close the page on the Lumia 900 just yet. The Windows Phone experience is impressive even on single-core chipsets and the OS is beautifully simple and charmingly social. The proprietary apps are a major lift too - Nokia Reading was recently added to the familiar Drive, Maps and Music. With a shadow always looming over it, the Lumia 900 will stand tall or fall short. But it won't go unnoticed.
The Nokia Lumia 900 has an 8MP camera with a lot to brag about - it has a 28mm wide-angle F2.2 lens by Carl Zeiss and a cleverly designed sensor, which allows you to produce 8MP photos with 4:3 aspect ratio, or 7.1MP photos if you want 16:9 aspect ratio.
The camera UI is pretty simple - you have your viewfinder and some controls on the right. From top to bottom they are the still/video camera toggle, virtual zoom buttons and an extended settings menu. On the left you have an arrow that takes you to the images taken with the camera, alternatively you can do a swipe gesture too.
