  1. For reasons even I don’t comprehend, I’ve always harbored a dislike for Asus, ZTE and Lenovo branded phones. Their newer models however may just change my mind.

  2. Khene,

    I own a Lenovo Vibe S1 and absolutely love it. It is the only Lenovo I have ever owned, I believe. I haven’t used a ZTE smartphone before. As for ASUS… while I am not a fan of the UI, they do have great performance. I have handled a few.
