Fancy Maker? Please keep these decision makers away from the Motorola office.

I think the decision came from the Lenovo part. Motorola didn't have such a stupid name on anything they did...at least I can't recall.

When did they kill Motorola? Are you a nut or what?

Motorola branding is part of Lenovo. Personally I prefer Google to keep Motorola but that our reality now. Let see what Fancy Maker can bring to the table.
High Spec with a low price will always be welcomed. This time in large volume too!!

I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure no one will be proud to own a phone named "Fancy Maker"

Customization is always welcome no matter what its name is.

This is the worst translation. It's actually more along the lines of "godly/magical device factory".

Very bad name... Even the name "BU11 SH!T" is better than "Fancy Maker", imho...

And the theme will be sang by iggy azalea. They should really make the phones under this phone to be really close if nit greater than what xiaomi offers.

Don't know where they got "Fancy Maker" from but that's not the offical English name.
The brand is officallly "ShenQi" (pronounced "Shen-Chee") meaning mystical or miraculous.
