Lenovo has ruined both the IBM Thinkpad brand and the Motorola brand. I see lots of complaints on social media about Lenovo's Android phones acting strangely.
Their Yoga PCs are a complete disgrace. IBM never would have locked Linux out of their Thinkpad lineup the way that Lenovo conspired with Microsoft to do with their Yoga laptops (probably more later). Lenovo has developed a reputation for themselves as the company of Superfish and the BIOS that reinstalled crapware over and over.
Their stock is down 2/3rds from last year. You'd have about 35 cents left for every dollar you invested in it. People are onto them. Microsoft has dug into Lenovo like a predatory wasp taking over an ant and forcing it back to the nest to lay its eggs. I'm not surprised about what is going on with Motorola at all.
Lenovo's phone shipments have been in rapid decline. They've been losing money. Google took them over hoping to get some patents in order to defend themselves from patent aggression by companies like Microsoft and Apple.
Microsoft has been going around threatening Android OEMs and saying that it has patents that describe what Android does, including the kernel Linux, and they have been using that to extract money or to get OEMs like Samsung to include useless Microsoft bloatware in order to avoid a lawsuit.
AsusTech, 27 Sep 2016going the Nokia (Microsoft) way?Its not anyone's specific way, its just the next step after merger/acquisition. Employees sense it right after the merger. May God help the ones who got sacked.
I got Moto G4 Plus 4 month ago. I am very happy with it despite the fact that I am committed windows mobile user.
Tragic for Moto because their phones are innovative, fast and actually a lot better in many ways than the competition. Two year old Moto X still outshines many of today's handsets, and the new Moto Z phones are more interesting and ground breaking than the hyped iPhone 7. Thinner too!
