Hey Nokia was King for 14 years straight whats wrong with you people? Samsung is King NOW wait until Samsung is Dethroned so lets choose the Phone that best suits YOUR needs thanks
faraash, 26 Jun 2013yeah, the high end is saturated but others make high end devices too, not just appleagreed but the only 2 phones in competition right now are samsung and android, and between then 2 alone they sold almost a 100 million phones smartphones alone, s4, note 2 and iphone 5, worldwide, and obvious upcoming note 3 and iphone 5s will mean that these 2 companies ship comparable figures again this year
shbi, 26 Jun 2013Sony at 3rd place in top smartphone vendors and will be at 2nd after sony i1 homani release. sorry that's for Western European markets shared
still sony is actually not doing great (100% Increased 2012 TO 2013)
LG has the biggest increased (380%) from 2012 to 2013.
here's the worldwide smartphone ranking by sales;
no sony on the top-5
Coleman, 26 Jun 2013Woop woop Sony no.3 in smartphones and growing! soon it will beat apple then who knows whatsony deserves being the first: best quality and a quite good support now with a lot of bug fixes to fix all bugs
prit kudale, 26 Jun 2013I don't know why people mad at Samsung so much. No doubt that they made galaxy S series which ... moreYou know why?
Because they are stupid people love a brand and not the technology, that's the point!
Samsung is a couple of years ago came out in the first place, that they should not go in your favor, because they realized that they were robbed of their favorite company for years.
Proof of this is Samsung, which has advanced and inexpensive, unlike the competition!

I don't know why people mad at Samsung so much. No doubt that they made galaxy S series which is highly impressive and no better competition to that but other than that series it is total crap. No good phone at mid range at good price with specifications. And low end android are crap and hangs too much...

And piracy rates have nothing to do with buying phones. Nearly all of apples overpriced apps are readily available online anyway....
I'm sad for Nokia. WP is not taking off and Symbian and Meego are dead.
Sony at 3rd place in top smartphone vendors and will be at 2nd after sony i1 homani release.
This is a unfair comparisson as Android is on everything other than apple, blackberry or nokia. so android is cleary going to be more popular as it covers loads of brands it's just common sense !!!!!!!
i'll go for sony or htc. i don't like samsung nor lg because of their not so cool industrial designs.
Companies like Micromax just rebrands Chinese phones and sells them in India with an affordable price tag which gives an alternative to Samsung phones here in India but they lack quality, yet they are second in the Indian market, after Samsung. Quite surprising. They are selling well here just because they have Android phones. Some times ago, Nokia was the king of Indian market and everybody hated Samsung at the time but the scenario has changed, Samsung is in the top right now whereas Nokia is just in the lowest area. Nokia must do something about it and firstly Nokia should fire its CEO....
