One must also consider the fact that Samsung also sells loads of stuffs as well. Say for example devices of low budget,mid budget and high budget comprising of smartphones like Galxy grand,S duos,Galaxy y,Galaxy Chat,Galaxy Mega 5.8,Galaxy Mega 6.3,Windows Os phones,S2,S3,S4(Normal,LTE,Zoom,Active,duos,mini),Note,Note 2,Note 3 and gosh the list goes on an on. However in comparison,Apple is just selling at the most 4s,5,5C,5S. So a 14% share in comparison to a 33% is a good score not forgetting the quantity of dealings. Personally love the 2 brands both and Addicted to both.
Words of a die hard Note lover,shifting 2 the iphone 5s this year :)

Are iPhones only a hundred dollars?
iPhone 5s 16GB $649 32GB $749 64GB $849 T-Mobile USA outright prices.
Learn some basic maths.

There's not much money in selling millions of Galaxy y's or the other low specced junk which makes up most of Samsung's sales.

For the companies listed, which is the only one to have manufacturing problems with their last 2 flagship phones?
Apple, that's who.
Yet that same company has many of their loyal customers claiming their phone is a quality build.
Keep drinking the kool-aid fanboys. Apple loves your money, so they must love you too ;)

DeDeTe, 29 Oct 2013So, cheap design and marginal build quality, combined with inflated, irrelevant specs and buck... moreYea, it's a shame Apple can't get better quality out of their China manufacturing facilities. Lenovo doesn't seem to have that problem.

It's only for iphones where double the capacity almost doubles the price of the phone. Other phone manufacturers don't do that. Apple charges the consumer silly prices for their Chinese made phones. Period.
Apple phones are about 3x more expensive than phones with the same features. Look at the numbers. Samsung is selling almost 3x the number of phones with slightly more profit than Apple this quarter.

Apple fanboys say such silly things.
People stop speculating on who outsells who!Coz if you know that for sure,now you'll be buy shares instead writing nonsense on some forum.
This report clearly says "shipment",which is usual in business,but who knows for sure how many SGS3 or iphone 4/4s are out there unsold?!?
samsung rules, 29 Oct 2013they don't want to make a bigger display simply because they can't even make their own screen ... moreIpad has a bigger screen. so don't give me those "because they can't make one themselves nonsense". All phones are composed of different parts from different companies. who is silly enough to make everything from scratch when others already have the facility and knowledge of that part for so many years? Also it's a win win situation, you give other people more jobs. Oh god Apple is so good
samsung rules, 29 Oct 2013they don't want to make a bigger display simply because they can't even make their own screen ... moreso what's your point? think before you talk pls. if they want a bigger display they could. i don't care who made that iphone screen. Did Samsung made that plastic out of their raw hands? stop the nonsense Please.

Samsung should be sued for false advertising, it's nowhere near a 16GB phone.
