First congrats again Samsung for being the TOP Smartphone vendor next those who are bashing Nokia read carefully in GLOBAL SHIPMENTS they are in second place ahead of Apple third where are HTC and LG?
Samsung is now unequivocally the "go to" brand for customers wanting great specced devices at good value prices be it high end, mid range or budget smartphones. Heck, these figures are even BEFORE the S4 starts its dominance!
How can anyone trust IDC?!
Look at the source for once!
SONY for exampker, is not in the numbers because they have not revealed their numbers yet.
It was the same thing in the last report.
i know how to read , the post said Samsung Extends Smartphone Lead in Q1 or you can't read . Samsung is First not second or third
AnonD-107289, 26 Apr 2013I think Nexus 4 helped LG to achieve that 3rd place...you are wrong dude, it's LG Optimus G sells very well...
It's a fair comparison with Apple if only premium handset sales are considered, as Apple does not sell basic smartphones. Comparison should be Galaxy S series vs Iphone sales. Samsung is winning that one as well, i believe
AnonD-131784, 26 Apr 2013GO LG!

Anonymous, 26 Apr 2013Nokia will definitely rock with Android. ...sure successBut Android is way too crowded right now. And with Microsoft backing Nokia, they get lots of great benefits. Plus there are plenty of exclusive Lumia apps. WP is also faster, more reliable, cool Live Tiles and looks way better. BTW Nokia won't be able to port their great HERE Maps apps to Android due to Google's policies. So... they're better off with WP.
AnonD-126290, 26 Apr 2013Nokia still selling loads of phones which is great...but still slipping away when it comes to ... moreActually, Lumia sales were 5.6 million last quarter, more than it ever sold before. And that number is definetely increasing once again. Nokia is back in the race - watch this year and 2014.
AnonD-134497, 26 Apr 2013Its because WP is designed for HUMANS not bots. Don't buy S4, trust me. You will end up sellin... moreTrue. WP rocks. Makes Android look old and BORING. WP is truly the next major force in smartphones. I am so glad I bought a Nokia Lumia instead of Samsung Galaxy.
Nokia is doomed,,,, windows phone sucks and this feedback is from people using lumia range.... Tried lumia 920 and trust me sooo boring and ugly platform compared to IOS and Android. Nokia must adopt Android, or kiss the industry goodbye. R.I.P. nokia
Congrats LG! Ur phone has improved greatly. I really love your Optimus 3 UI.
Been using LG for the past 6 years, U really did a good job to improve your phones and interface! All the best and press on!
AnonD-36414, 26 Apr 2013android,huh? Where is htc(heavily relies on android) or sony(only android),wait for nokia's g... morea 41MP gimmick. you already know it. the Nokia 808 isn't selling well. and none of peoples at now cares about big MP cameras. lol
Congrats to Samsung fro being the top dawg in the Mobile industry. Hope you guys will do even better in future :)
I wonder how those people who troll about Nokia isn't even in the top 5 while Nokia is still on the second position. How could this be.....
Big congrats to LG as well. Perhaps Sony and HTC are shown as others but still they have proven how much power they awesomeness they can throw which can be found in their current flagships i.e, Xperia Z and HTC One.
All hail to the Kings, Nokia, Samsung, HTC, Sony...
