Mostly known for its personal computers, Lenovo has made commendable progress in smartphone business. In 2014’s second quarter, Lenovo took over Samsung as the No.1 selling smartphone maker of China.
Also, the Chinese brand was ranked as the forth largest supplier worldwide by shipment size. Experts predict that Lenovo’s acquisition of Google-owned Motorola will also positively boost its growth.
