We can't deny the fact that we are addicted to our smartphones. While such is the case, we spend a lot of time downloading apps and we even try to figure out how to increase the battery life and make the most of the storage capacity we have.
However, even though we spend a lot of time on our phones for different purposes, most of us are interested in the technology and features while upgrading our phones.
On the other hand, especially if we haven't upgraded to a new smartphone in 2016, we would be probably interested in which new smartphones will be released in 2017 and what features we can expect if we buy a new phone from our favorite smartphone makers.
Well, there are many exciting smartphones that are coming out in 2017. But today we will look at a new smartphone from Lenovo.
