Samsung sales nosedive as Xiaomi, Apple enjoy growth

Each year, smartphone sales grow. Overall, the market is doing really well, and 2014 is no different. Gartner has released their Q3 2014 smartphone sales numbers, and the overall growth is impressive. Versus this time last year, manufacturers around the globe have shipped upwards of 50 million more smartphones, which represents a 20% hike in overall movement. Gartner says they expect overall sales to hit 1.2 billion by the end of the year, too. Everyone should be enjoying the spoils, yet Samsung is probably wringing their hands.

Lenovo “mobile device shipments” to beat Samsung in 2015

Lenovo “mobile device shipments” to beat Samsung in 2015

There's a report out today that suggests Lenovo is about to overtake Samsung in mobile device shipments, and that they'll do so inside of the year 2015. This report comes from Digitimes, citing their own "Digitimes Research", and suggests that "Lenovo is estimated to beat Samsung Electronics in mobile computing device shipments... by about one million units in 2014 and become the second-largest mobile computing device brand vendor worldwide, only behind Apple." The only problem with calling this race is in the term "mobile device" - mostly because to them, this only means notebooks and tablets, not smartphones.

Lenovo snaps MacBooks to push YOGA 3 Pro

Lenovo snaps MacBooks to push YOGA 3 Pro

To make clear that the Lenovo YOGA 3 Pro does, indeed, bend all the way backwards, Lenovo has taken to the mall to drop some pranks on unsuspecting shoppers. Working with the UCB Comedy crew and Above Average, Michael Kayne, Shaun Diston, and Jim Santangeli bring on some pre-broken MacBooks and some Lenovo YOGA 3 Pro units to a demonstration kiosk for the public. Watch as the YOGA's hinge allows it to bend all the way backwards, and the MacBooks'... doesn't bend quite so easily.

Lenovo YOGA 3 Pro Review

Lenovo YOGA 3 Pro Review

Finally, a truly great Windows laptop. Lenovo's YOGA 3 Pro is thin, yet robust. It's powerful enough to handle tasks like video processing and light gaming, yet its battery life is optimized to such a degree that I'm able to use it like I would my main work notebook. The Lenogo YOGA 3 Pro transforms between a notebook, a touch display, and a tablet, but its abilities aren't just in place to be retrofitted to Windows 8's touchscreen intentions. The Lenovo YOGA 3 Pro isn't perfect, but it's very, very close.

Lenovo Erazer X315 review: Gaming for all

Lenovo Erazer X315 review: Gaming for all

There’s one thing Lenovo is exceedingly good at: making excellent products at approachable price points. At CES this year, we became enamored with their 4K monitor, which had impressive resolution and a then jaw-dropping low price tag. Keeping in line with their high-end/low-cost desktop ambitions, Lenovo has the Erazer X315, which — for a gaming desktop computer — holds a very slim starting price. Does a low price mean Lenovo’s Erazer is cheap? We give it the gaming go-round to find out.

Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 Pro Review

Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 Pro Review

The Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 Pro is a unique piece of work. Lenovo didn't fall into the same trap many manufacturers make in creating tiny boosts for their devices each year, changing only base configurations. They didn't say, hey, this YOGA Tablet is neat enough, let's just give it a better display for the tail end of 2015. Instead they've made a radical change - they've created a 13.3-inch display-toting tablet that carries its own projector and the world's first tablet-based 5-watt subwoofer. Suddenly this tablet business seems like a whole different ball-game.

Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro pit against Macbook Air in new Microsoft ad

Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro pit against Macbook Air in new Microsoft ad

Lenovo's Yoga 3 Pro notebook is thin, it's transformable, and it would appear to be Microsoft's newest favored son as it does battle with the MacBook Air in Microsoft's newest TV ad spot. This device is thinner than the MacBook Air. It's able to bend backwards far enough to turn itself into a tablet. It's got a touchscreen. It's also very similar looking to the MacBook Air from afar - but they really couldn't be more difference, when it comes down to it.

Lenovo ThinkPad W540 Review – Old-School Pride

Lenovo ThinkPad W540 Review – Old-School Pride

The ThinkPad's distant history is pocked with no-nonsense business machines sporting plain designs and thick bodies. Those are largely a thing of the past, with the newest ThinkPads coming with a side dish of sleekness that make them stand out from systems of days gone by. Such isn't the case with Lenovo's new ThinkPad W540, a mobile workstation targeted at business users that in some ways harkens back to the old T-Series designs. That's not a criticism, mind you. There's something refreshing about a laptop that isn't partly based on being overtly stylish, instead zeroing in on functionality for those who care most about what the machine can do. Does the W540's functionality match its boardroom aesthetic, though? Read our full SlashGear review to find out!
