Hello, readers!  It’s clear by now that any Sim Lim retailer is THE place to avoid if you’re looking to buy a new phone, just last weekend another retailer from Sim Lim Square got themselves into hot soup through an online sale on Qoo10. Perhaps it’s time consumers start buying their phones from legit trustworthy shops, online and offline, such as the new online store launched by Lenovo SG. Also before deciding on a phone, you might want to check out Microsoft’s first smartphone, the Lumia 535.
