Reviews for the Lenovo Moto E3

60% Moto E3 review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Moto E3 isn’t a bad phone, but it’s hamstrung by terrible performance, a frustrating Android experience, and the proposed lack of future software updates. A shame, since it has a decent screen and offers great standby time.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer, owned the majority of the company. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.

70%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
