IDC smartphone marketshare,

Samsung sold 80M last quarter ? 30M more than apple's "amazing and better than everyone else" 50MOr because Apple , again, lost marketshare ?

Samsung sold an amazing 80M last quarter, and 300M over the year (twice Apple sales) , very impressive numbers . Yet their marketshare barely saw a grow ; and apple with also impressive numbers even saw a decrease in marketshare ...

Lenovo , LG and Huawei were responsible for that, as they are climbing to the top ; now its just a matter of how high they can climb
