You will need to factory reset the phone again.
I understand. Please read my reply above
Okay, thank you.
Hold down the power button for 15-20 seconds until the phone restarts.
Take your time
That is interesting because the "Google Play services" error is usually fixed by performing a factory reset on the phone.
The phone more than likely has hardware failure but the good news is that it is covered under warranty since it is less than a year old. Please call 1-***-***-**** and let them know that your phone is experiencing hardware failure.

It does not matter where the phone was purchased as long as it is within the one year warranty.
The option to rate our session is entirely up to you; I am not credited with helping you unless you rate our session as excellent, good, or ok and press Submit.
The phone is under warranty and will not cost you any money for the repair/replacement.
The solution that I have provided to have the phone replaced under warranty is the only option available. There should be no charge to have your phone replaced/repaired.
Who is the third party that they are trying to refer you to?
Please call the number back and ask for a transfer to a warranty department. Lenovo makes numerous phones and they would not refer customers to a third party provider when it is covered under their warranty.
Office hours are 9am-9pm EST
I accessed their live chat for sales and they referred me back to the number that I have provided you but they stated their office is open 9-7pm EST; not the 9-9 listed on the website. Try using the number with option 2 (according to live chat)
While I cannot make guarantees for other companies, I have not come across a company that makes a product and does not honor their own warranty.
Lenovo makes phones and covers them on their warranty. I would suggest that you give them a call tomorrow.
Okay, sounds good.
