Mobile. World. Congress. The words would strike fear into lesser journalists, but Luke, Andy and special guest Jessica Dolcourt are unafraid, set to bring you all their favourite tech from the planet's most massive mobile show.

Up for debate first is LG's G5 smartphone, which has a removable battery unit that can be swapped out for other accessories. It's a neat idea, but should Samsung really be worried? Speaking of Samsung, the team also offer their considered thoughts on the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge.

It's not just mobiles though. HTC's mind-blowing Vive was shown in its final form, but will anyone want to sacrifice their living room to this pricey VR marvel? And is it a good idea to let a robot deliver your shopping? And hey -- what on Earth happened to smartwatches? We ask all these questions and many more, so hit play now.

We're always hungry for your feedback, so pop your thoughts in the comments below or drop us a line at cnetukpodcast [at] cbsi.com. Oh, and if you've enjoyed the show, why not leave us a glowing review on iTunes? Hit play and enjoy.
