The Chinese Corporation Lenovo has long ago passed the mark of only supplying the PC market. The group is known for their PC and Laptops and has started a distinctive line of mobile electronics as well.
Lenovo is well known to computer lovers and geeks, but can they make it in the mobile market. This remains to be seen. The truth is they receive up to 70% profit from the sales of computers and laptops. With the implementation of Smartphones, it brings in even less.
So, which of the Lenovo Smartphones considered the best? Stay a while and view some of the collection right here.
