AnonD-231994, 08 Jul 2014I live in Nigeria too and i guess you're right. But I think the survey is for the U.SFirst of all, why are you replying to yourself to try to make it look like two people?
Second, there is a link right at the bottom of the article with the source. Click on it an you will see this is a worldwide report.
Third, Samsung released over 30 models of smartphones last year. This report is talking about individual phones. You can see as many Samsung products as you want, but all those Galaxy Stars and Galaxy Aces just don't have the impact of high end phones.
i am yet to see any article about Samsung Q2 forecast in gsmarena.. :)

It is not even there on ra... moreIt's because of fanboys of other brands that keeping downvoting Apple that's why they are very low on GSMArena rankings. In the real world, only sales matter. Negative opinion don't determine the smartphone's popularity.
On the subject of privacy, isn't it ironic that not many actually really investigated what "open vs closed" systems really meant, before shouting and shouting it like a mantra.
Interesting to note that now that Apple has set its rules on security and its closed system, it is now opening slowly to allow developers more access, having matured and a solid foundation.
Android, due to fragmentation and problems, after shouting its "open is king" mantra, becomes more closed with each iteration.

Android phones, being directly related to Google, whose primary business is search, well, you do the math.

ABI Reseach your data is wrong. Better research again with correct results and not the specific country results.
The iPhone 5c has outsold the Galaxy S5 in the UK for the past month.

Saint, 08 Jul 2014I don't believe iPhone 5s tops the chartBecause you are a biased fanboy.
The 5s is the strongest and greatest smartphone out there. Good work Apple!
Lujacruise, 08 Jul 20142011 iPhone number 5 ? WhatttttttttttThe power of the A5 chip hahaa. Powers iPad mini and the famous iPhone 4S. Still going strong with iOS7.. bet iOS8 will be its last breath.
Another biased sales report. There is no benchmark for worldwide sales. it depends on each country and carrier. Iphone is best selling in America. Samsung are the best selling in Korea/Far East. And europe. it just depends who does the survey.
