Lenovo entered the smartphone world a little late, but it did make sure that its devices are not treated as cheap replicas like other small budget phone developers. It promised quality specs at a reasonable price, which has greatly improved its sales in a number of countries. And it looks like the future of the Chinese company is fruitful as long as it stays on track and offers proficient devices. However, competition from other companies is surely going to be faced from time to time that might be an issue for it. Nonetheless, the organization looks forward to delivering decent specs in low and mid-range phones. It might aim for high-range devices in the future but that might take some time. Mostly, it depends on how well the launched phones are going to do in the smartphone market. For now, it can be said that Lenovo is not treated as a cheap quality company with low products. It has a strong fan base that is increasing with time.
Thus, within a few months, the phone has created a high fan following worldwide. The only problem that the user can face with this smartphone is the absence of Cornilla Gorilla Glass, but apart from this, all other features make it worth buying. If at such an easy payment of $156.35, you can get a smartphone with abundant and healthy features, then hardly you should wander to search for another smartphone.
