  • Not buying a Chinese phone...
  • Hate to be the bearer of bad news kiddo, but more than likely what ever phone you're currently using, most if not all of it was more than likely made in China...
  • I have a Samsung Note 20 Ultra, made by a Korean company which does not manufacture in China...
  • Asus is MUCH more likely to update their phones than Lenovo is.
