Generally both of them less than last year but samsung less than apple because note 7
Recently studies showed that World Wide Vendor cellular is Nokia father of a Lamp
and as usual.. "shipped" does not = Sales
there could be millions of phones in shops not sold, but they count those in these BS stats to make the shares go up.
Some manufacturers are more guilty than others at making the stats "look" better.
So what we are saying is that for Apple to outsell Samsung they need to rely on Samsung releasing an exploding phone and it only helped them by 0.1% over Samsung and only for Q4 (which is when Apple releases their phones FYI) compared to Samsungs release of Q1/2

BUT totalling the units throughout the year Samsung still leads by ~6% or around 100 million units.. Also remember that Apple has a new model and flagship on September(7,7+) whereas Samsung has no new flagship to sell at Q4 because their Note 7 has been recalled.. Even with exploding image of Samsung it managed to sell equal to Apple.. With the bezelless S8 Apple will be doomed
boodiaen, 01 Feb 2017Galaxy s7 and s7 edge made that in the first 3 quarters How many models does Samsung release for sale each quarter?

I own iphone 6s , galaxy s7 and iphone 7 plus.
And iphones use worthless dacs and amplifiers ( 7 plus doesn't have a dac ). Android flagships are the one which innovated new s
Features and apple is the one who copied them . On the end of the day i would prefer android because i will root it , modify it's kernel and do whatever i desire

Apple needs to cut off their prices.........
Though apple revolutionized smartphones it doesn't mean that they have to give hefty Price tags...
Next year competition is going to be tough Nokia's entry in house back again but I can guarantee if misstep of note 7 wasn't taken by samsung it was the no 1 well looking forward to next year
Anonymous, 01 Feb 2017Not 2 exactly, Apple offers 5 handsets(6s,6sPlus,7,7Plus,SE) officially. Iphone 6 and 6 Plus w... moreOK for your sake let's include 6 and 6+.It makes total of 7 offers. Let us make it more detailed - only IPS LCD display,half the RAM compared to Samsung, bezels, no SD card slot.
How many models each did Samsung, OPPO, VIVO, Huawei release in 2016? What happens if you add numbers of on-off,pro, primes,A -Z, galaxies,notes kids from past 2 years? Do you know how many models Samsung released? Add on AMOLED screen,3/4/5/6 gb RAM,SD card slot,slim bezels.
Question still remains- still can they achieve 17.80% with just 7 offerings like apple?
By the way I suppose you are same annonymous who said only 2 in reply on my comment.

Waterproofing, expandable storage, VR, Health sensors, QHD screens(mostly for show but good to have an option) ,screen size ranging from 4.7 to 6 inches etc.,. Everything was copied from Apple.
Samsung still is the world's top smartphone player for the ENTIRE 2016. Wonder why that's not mentioned in the article. Hmm?

Iphone 6 and 6 Plus were discontinued in september but that would mean for production not the handsets ready for shipping which will be included in this metric.

It's like with cars: you pay 1000$ you get a driving car with no extras. You pay 100000$ you get a driving car with all extras. Your comparison doesnt make sense to me. Also the op3 isnt just driving it's awesomely fast driving and has alot of extras (if not all).
