    In MWC you heard about the top brands like a Samsung, Huawei, LG, Sony, and other. But there are dozens of emerging brand showing off their innovative devices as well. I saw too many similar designs with equally matched features and quality. Just like an iLA Silk and ZTE Blade V9. If you see the design of both upcoming smartphones you will be not able to define company brand. let's wait for price and official launch. Reply
