News about Sony Xperia Go

E3 2018 is happening right now from 12th June to 14th June and as always, gamers all around the world are staying up late nights (if you’re not in the USA) chasing up reports and coverage on all the upcoming games getting announced this year. Lucky for you, however, we’ve put together the five best trailers (in our opinion) announced so far from E3!

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.
