It's amazing how Apple still can keep up sales with only 4 phones on the markets. 2nd-hand iPhone 4 and 3GS are selling bigtime in developing markets. Of course the availability isn't as great as Samsung's, Nokia and chinese brand phones.

soul, 29 May 2013LG's in the Ivy league?! Are you kidding me?!!!!LG does better than HTC or even Sony when comes to smartphone. Nexus 4 is good example!

Surely the fact Samsung has more handsets on offer is the reason they are doing so well? Apple refuse to cater to the lower market which means they lose alot of sales to people who dont always want the top phones.
The reason Samsung is doing better than apple goes both ways: Samsung have better phones; Apple refuse to do lower end phones.

There is a bit of a difference. Samsung just go real big. And mostly through innovation and hard work. The S4 is actually a great improvement although agreed it couldve been a little more
xperianxt, 29 May 2013iPhone 5 beat the GS3 in sales last years sales or whatever two phones from last year. People ... moreOne Icrap and endless Droids to choose from. The Galaxy line does amazing in sales for how many other choices there is. Imagine if the Galazy was the only to choose....Iphone sales would plummet to nothing.
Remember shamesung fans. Apple just sold two phones iPhone 5 and 4S (as 4 is discontinued) worth 22 billion. Shamesung sold All the Galaxies from A to Z and then Notes, then Tabs, then every letter has its own portfolio. Example Ace, Ace 2,S1,S2,S3,S4.... And the index goes on.
iPhone 5 beat the GS3 in sales last years sales or whatever two phones from last year. People forget this a new year therefore new devices. The GS4 may have sold a lot of devices for now. until the next iPhone takes the spotlight again haha
Ribber, 28 May 2013The King reigns supreme. Take a bow Samsung!This monopoly of Samsung as android main manufacturer is not good for innovation and prices. I find samsung prices too expensive for me and also the improvement from S3 to S4 to me is a lack of innovation and game changing features. :(
Akino, 28 May 2013The IVY league (The Big 3) of smartphone makers: 1) Samsung 2) Apple 3) LG The R.I.P lea... moreWhen the frist iPhone was launched, some people called it BB Killer, but some said that BB dominance on Market is almost impossible to overcome. But in 2010 after 3 years, apple managed. And now if android's dominance is huge to overcome, BB will manage it. And for Nokia, 91% use MS Windows in PC. W8 tablets are trending now, Lumias with Nokia tech and WP8 in smartphone market are Trending. One day when BB will again have its RIM glory and Nokia will have its 60% Market share again...!! History Repeats itself.
windroideeed, 28 May 2013hmmmm 3-4 more months and then bye bye samd@@g . Nokia will regain its top spot and htc and so... moremaybe your nokia will be the goner in 3-4motnhs. just look at the quarterly sales of samsung, and nokia where? declining sales and no app variations...bye bye nokia.
windroideeed, 28 May 2013used to have n s3 and beleive methe hype sammy created was nt worth it...now whats the price o... moreseems like you did'nt own a s3 at all. screen is a super amoled, which provides details using low power efficiency. lag? i guess you don't know how to use a smartphone, every friend of mine who switched from ip5 to s3 are satisfied and contented, they never experienced any lag even if they don't use task manager. one last thing, s3 has a fm radio.
Foes anybody out there with a Samsung 3 know hoe to get pictures that were sent to you on a text message to my picture gallery?
I wonder if everyone will be happy if there is nothing else to purchase but Samsung's and iPhone's. That must be very borring. For all people who wishes for other companies to "die", try to imagine that.
htc and motorola make displays? They do not make anything.
They are now repackagers that take credit for the work of other people.
