Do you guys realise HTC and Sony haven't even included, probably because their sales are nothing more than an embarrassment?
Keep it real, mobile phone market is driven by China and India, that's why Chinese companies made a huge progress
true LG making good phones.I own L9 which has good specification according to needs ,no hanging and most important cheap.
Both Samsung and Apple product are getting dull.
Same design every year and just plain boring.
Most developers don't op for Exynos based Galaxy series because Samsung doesn't want to release the info about the hardware and make the developer very upset. Same goes to the consumers.
I'm using S3. I will going with Sony or HTC or Nexus series next time in the future.
VCRP, 27 Jul 2013It isn't ARMs CPUs fault either, its the owner of the phone who is ignorant and bought a phone... moreFrom what I read on forums even Snapdragon 600 can't play 10bit video at required framerate of 23,973fps. Add some flashy subtitles to equation and you'll get 15fps at best. I'm not "blaming" anyone, I just find it strange that 2011 ARM CPU can't play something that 2009 laptop CPU plays with loads under 30%. All this battery efficiency is fine and dandy but not when you can't get the job done because of that.

Amazes me when some Americans complain about the price tag of high end smartphones when most of them purchase it from their carrier. Over here most people purchase unlocked smartphones although it's priced more than one's monthly salary. I guess those Americans who have been winning about price tags should go for Chinese phones instead of dreaming to get iphones or other flagship devices... or maybe just get a job.
Anon, 26 Jul 2013Wheres Sony? shouldn't they be 3rd ?They are, they just haven't released their Q2 market share yet
Eisley, 26 Jul 2013Nokia fanboy? Your statements aren't true. I would never bash Nokia because of some thing I do... moreNah, he's just devoted to the old Nokia sentiments... that's all. Check out the currency he's quoting there. You know what I mean. LOL.
Anonymous, 26 Jul 2013Sony has not yet revealed their q2sales so this report is uselessDon't waste your time. They are not going to break any records. So your comment is pretty useless.

Any manufacturers can label and market their phones as smartphones. The term of smartphone was little vague during that period. Do some research before saying anything apart from your kitchen. :)
Chinese phones are more practical and inexpensive. They don't make super fast phones with small battery. That's why HTC isn't on the list anymore.
No wonder why my S3 broke after a fall whereas my Nokia 1110 is scratchless till date even after getting fallen a million times over 40 ft. and a thousand times in water. O.o

I don't even know how could Apple name it a smartphone (not that the new ones are) when you could do nothing with it. No real bluetooth (not that now it's fixed), no multitask, crap quality materials (plastic), no 3g, no memory card, crappy screen resolution, no apps. Yeah, i really think it was original:-J.
Apple an Samsung now are facing alot more competition in the Mobile Market, an we need this so they know they have to Improve there status an come out with something more attractive to keep there good name,the last quarter of 2013 will be a Very good stage for Smartphones,with Apple releasing the New iPhone an Samsung releasing the New Galaxy Note,Sony,LG an others releasing more High-Tech phones,an we might get Nokia switching to Android phones
