This report is misleading. It should compare the market share not the profit share. I don't believe only these 2 giants are making profit only and yet there is whole bunch of brands listed in GMSARENA site. Then the rest can be closing down due to losses.
It should total up all the profits and lost from all brands' company and then do a percentage of share. Which school is the person who prepare this report from??
I don't quite understand this, though they are already written in words. Maybe I'd appreciate this report on charts, graphs and other related sales data for verification.
Anonymous, 09 May 2014Good for Apple and the idiots that pay silly prices for their China made phones. Every time I... more...Apple China Made by factory workers.
.. Samsung Made by factory workers also!! .. YOu don't think Samsung no use factory workers?? Most koreans are factory workers also! or foreigners working there as factory workers.
With your mentality, anyone buying any phone = suckers. There is no good or bad, everyone just want to earn money for living!!
As the old saying: you can sell s!th as long people like it, will be successful. Don't blame the most successful companies, they just sell what people like, numbers are there to prove it.
God knows I don't like their products, but I don't hate them, is just matter of preferences.
Vox populi, vox dei
Only ppl outside the US pay full price for an iPhone & they get cheaper line usage fees. The iPhone is the same as HTC, Samsung, Motorola and LG. $199.00 on contract. People here in the USA don't buy unlocked mobiles for the most part.
I wish people would stop throwing their money at these useless brands and award those actually making the best products. That is how a capitalist system is supposed to work and those throwing money and crApple and Samdung are undermining it.
Anonymous, 09 May 2014Good for Apple and the idiots that pay silly prices for their China made phones. Every time I... moreWhat's wrong with having a device assembled in China? It's easy to point to problems for every OEM. Galaxy S devices have suffered from black screen of death, battery problems, faulty hardware for quite some time. When you make millions of something even a small percentage seems large. The only suckers I see around are Blackberry owners. Those guys are pitiful. Might as well buy an android phone if you're going to depend do much on android apps.

gotta give them credit for the 2g - 4 though we wouldnt have the phones we have today with them...
i just hope Apple dont Blackberry themselves...
I always have high hopes for Apple and ALWAYS get let down
not that i would spend $1000+NZD on midrange specs
Good for Apple and the idiots that pay silly prices for their China made phones. Every time I see someone with an iphone 5/5s/5c I think "sucker".
Battery drain and wi-fi connectivity issues, silly ios 7 bugs like not being able to answer calls and the cutesy pastel colors: It all adds up to a premium experience worthy of a premium price.
it's should 100% only, even if other brands have negative profit is should 100%....data provided is bogus!
Everyone wants the best and these the best phones on the market.
106% out of ???
I can understand 100% being a overall total or maximum, but 106% out of 150% or 200% etc
so which is it.

This profit margin can only be achieved by delivering a product that commands a higher price versus manufacturing cost. End of
