Mobile World Congress is crawling with outrageous new mobile devices like Huawei’s foldable Mate X and Energizer’s gargantuan phone equipped with an 18,000 mAh battery, but none was as ridiculous and over-the-top as Nubia’s Alpha watch phone.
Kudos to Nubia for literally bending a 4-inch display around a watch band to fit around your wrist. But, wow, is the Alpha ugly. It’s beyond hideous. And the software — it’s so terrible that I was left wondering why the Alpha even exists.
