Why aren't the brands on the left of the page structured by who's first in market share ? Should give people a general ideea of what to invest in so they have the largest compatibility of the services each manufacturer offers (wifi direct , s Beam , etc)

Sony have plans this year to tighten the grip in market buy releasing some demanding products(eg z, zl and the upcoming 6.44inch phablet named togari to rival note 3). Finally sony have started to get their act straight and releasing some seriously high end devices. But their products dont usually sell in high volumes like the s3 or i5.
Samsung needs a new designer while sony needs a better marketing mngr.

Hold your words folks 2013 is a different scenario. Consumers are know more aware of what they buy. I got the feeling this year end report will be lot more different. The competition will be tough. I'm worried about LG they pull through because of nexus, but this year motorola will be googles priority. Sony made a good impression. Apple has to do more cause iphone5 will be hampered by the new phones not only by samsung. Nokia Wp is making good too, users word of mouth attest to the reliability of windows phone. Samsung has released s3, s4 maybe the best yet to come out but s3 still new
note 2 will be the winner for samsung. Huawei posing good, together with the other chinese brands but they need to eradicate the cheap impression. Alcatel ia a silent one but i tried it on hand its great phone, time will time for them, but not now. Bb, htc has good quality, pricing will be the factor of their success.
