Lenovo K8 Note stock Android UI is hopefully just the start

OEM-customized Android experiences may (or may not) have some added value to offer, but Lenovo’s “Pure Vibe” skin isn’t one of those. As such, there was no tear shed when Lenovo revealed that it will retire that custom UX in favor of adopting the “real pure” Android envisioned by Google.

Moto E4 Plus Review : The Never-ending Battery

Lenovo's next mobile move is putting pure stock Android on all of its phones - all with Lenovo's brand, anyway. This should make a significant difference in how serious the brand is taken and how much of a cult following the brand has - or will have.

For now, we can at least appreciate how Lenovo is this close to bringing the foldable device dream to life, showing off a working prototype at the Lenovo Tech World and making our mouths drool.
