It's good news for Samsung of course. But I think a lot of people buy the brand that is the biggest. To follow other people, like sheep. It's never good that only one manufacturer is so big. So I advise people to buy other brands like HTC, Sony and LG. Create a balance and be a little bit original ;)
AnonD-977, 29 Oct 2013Too bad they don't break down these sales into models. Samsung make $50 "smart" p... moreWell perhaps apple should look into building a budget phone for less than £350... Only in apples eyes would that price tag be considered budget.
Let's wait for the revenue report to be posted at the end of the year. Shipment is different from actual sales. I see a bunch of these phones in stores, they are not manufactured locally so I assumed that these are shipped.
Well I think the data shows some phones get easily damage and replaced each year or even just a couple of quarter. And zombies grab another set. Just my thought.
Too bad they don't break down these sales into models.
Samsung make $50 "smart" phones, Apple doesn't.
AnonD-186595, 29 Oct 2013Yes gsmarena. Where is sony?Sony has never topped the 10 million sales mark in any given quarter. Q2 report stated 9.6 million smartphone shipments so I think they pretty stagnated with around that figure last quarter.

Anonymous, 29 Oct 2013Where's sonyWhere is your cLiam that LG already sold 54million?
Of all the new phones, and amongst my friends - I only know people with 5S or iPhone 5. Very few sgs IV. Nothing else. All different people, nationalities, education levels. Sorry but sales figures not on the balance sheet mean nothing.
Sony has about 4%, which means they didn't make it into the top 5.
Joey, 29 Oct 2013yeagh I know but If for example I want to put a 2 GB game on my SD card, it just wont do it, i... moreIn some cases like such true...However as stated put all the media on the SD card. Especially you can get something like a 64GB UH1 card..
And again. You can get a 32GB or 64GB flagship...one that still offers an SD Slot as well.

Sadly there was no Symbian2-3 update for the Omnia HD.
