Lenovo now shipping more smartphones than PCs Lenovo, the world's biggest PC maker, has announced that they now ship more smartphones than PCs, a major milestone for the company.
Additionally, the company claimed it was the top Chinese phone maker during the quarter, although research firms have disputed that data point, instead claiming Xiaomi was the leader in the market.

For the quarter, Lenovo shipped 15.8 million smartphones (up 39 percent year-over-year), versus 14.5 million PCs during the same time frame.

Although on a smaller scale, tablet sales jumped 67 percent to 2.3 million, officially making Lenovo third in that market, well behind Apple and Samsung.

Overall, Lenovo has 19.8 percent of the PC market, ahead of giants like HP and Dell, and saw notebook growth this quarter while the overall market saw a decline.

Not surprised, the laptops they have been shipping are real S%^&. Quality control issues and really bad customer service. Takes them ages to acknowledge issues and even after acknowledgement will not take steps to rectify. Honestly send a laptop for 2 fixes replace network card and fix jumpy trackpad (U510) takes 2 months to replace the network card and only fix 1 issue. Have to send the laptop back for the other trackpad issue they can only fix one issue at a time. Joke of a company.
