Lenovo K12 Note Review: Back With A Vengeance
Source: Unbox English
Our K12 Note review shows just how much Lenovo wants to match POCO’s crazy budget offering, and the K12 Note just did that. While the majority of the specs are identical, Lenovo makes up for it with more camera features, stock Android, and slightly faster charging speeds. While its low-light performance is so-so at best even when using Night Vision, there’s still plenty of room for improvement through software updates–Lenovo has been keeping the K12 Note updated with the latest security updates.

As a phone that aims to give the POCO M3 a run for its money, Lenovo’s latest budget offering proves that the brand more known for its laptops can also come up with value-for-money smartphones as well. With the K12 Note (or Moto G9 Play outside the Philippines), Lenovo promises that their local comeback is worth the wait.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

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, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. 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.
