Huawei last year really hit their lane with P8, and now (at least here in Europe) a lot of people owns one. And looks like Xiaomi does well this year, because people are getting interested in this brand, and they never heard about it. I'm waiting for P9, if this'll be bust, they Mi5 PRO 128GB.
Angry Mobile Nerd, 14 Mar 2016If Apple's products are overpriced then people will stop buying them. It's simple economics r... moreIt's not the matter of "can" or "can't". I just don't want to. Inferior specs, abysmal battery life, closed and simple OS, that you can't even configure to your liking, and the unreasonable price tag. IPhones have been overpriced since #4. Same generation as Galaxy S3 for example, look that up. It's a laugh and a half.
Almand, 14 Mar 2016Im really dissapear with Sony
My brother had an Xperia T2 ultra
After the updates to lollipo... moreSometimes the wifi hotspot needs updating. Had an issue with a work provided hotspot and an iphone. They simply needed to update the firmware for a "new chipset" to connect.
You should check the AP and update to the latest firmware.
hmmm.. so what can we learn from the customer flow graphic?
HTC customers are fed up with their ridiculously expensive HTC One's
--> the go to a cheaper Samsung model but feel duped again
---> and finally go to some cheap chinese because it really doesn't matter if you have an expensive or a cheap(er) droid.
hmmmm... perhaps I should take a closer look at these Mi 5.... to replace my "Samsung" ;-)
Huawei,Xiaomi and OPPO is gonna have higher sales this year.Oneplus too if they can actually produce enough units.
Samsung should be in lost, because Samsung agrees to hand over $548 million to Apple after losing patent lawsuit.

Most of the apps on google play works if you have jellybean, and most of a smartphone's functionality is in the apps anyway.
No wonder, Huawei got 16Mp,6",4000mah,17h-web real endurance of phone, about what was expected of note5. Sony stays in pixel(with 23+13Mp) and endurance race adding different chips hi-end to mid-range. (Both-Huawei&sony got FHD as ideal for endurance) As for microsoft it do not matter much, 950/xl were great, but suffered from unfinished w10. Some would even want full w10 and 1050 to come with some new flagship-defining specs. Change in profits will come probably in Q4 this year or in Q1 of next, I wish it would come sooner.

Sammy earns less per product than Sony, the divident will increase
Sony gets more profitable despite decreased sales, sammy still does, but chinese will make them sweat soon ;-)
Percentage of sales lost hurts sammy mobile a lot more than Sony mobile ;-)
LOL, whatever. Whatever the charts say that make themselves happy.
Or we could look at this from a new angle: IF product placement is to be followed, I'd say whatever car brand, TV brand, smartphone brand appears in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) or gets a cameo in Suicide Squad (2016) should sell well this year or even the next

Do not be jelaous, your sammy is doing fine too, only because of mass producing...
Can you buy s7?
It seems that Sony's strategy is working after all. I still don't like the new X series but it's nice to see that Sony isn't constantly bleeding because of its phones.
Anonymous, 14 Mar 2016I can. For 500Â€. Moto X style is quite affordable.its old, besides it doesn't have a finger print reader. i am talking about s7 or g5. the true flagships(hey voted by people/fanbase not me).
