Samsung is STILL No.1 in China. Market share.
Only last Q is that Xiaomi sell a bit more than Samsung. It didn't change the big picture yet, though.
Apple rank no.5 to 7 in China the last few quarter.
Apple not even Top-5 handset maker for the last 3 years.
For GSMArana info, Samsung was No.1, previously before it lose out to Xiomi this year. But Samsung still No.2 in China with Apple no way in sight of No.3 to 4.
Secret Service, 09 Aug 2014they cant make it. xiaomi huwei apple are the dominators thereTwo out of three ain't bad
Apple is already losing ground and with the Xiaomi Mi 4 price set @ $320 it is half the price of the $650 LG G3
5.5" and a third the price of Apple 5.5" which is rumoured to be $1012
Apple seems to be a leader in that it is getting MORE EXPENSIVE with each release
Any sales LG make can only add to its coffers but paying double to get a phone with the same 13Mp camera is only the customer wants a LG G3
Phone selection is not a science, but sometimes price doesn't factor into it (however double and treble must mean love!)
Despite the impressive spec of the LG G3 the phone that does it for me is the recently announced iPhone lookalike Infocus M810, followed by the Honor 6 then the Mi 4.
If I had fallen for the G3, it really would take blind obsession fit it than not to pick an alternative instead.
LG G3....one of the best Mobile phone in the market today...Gorgeous screen...innovative design and great battery life..
Sorry LG have been waiting for this so called G3 for the past months here in Nigeria and is not available . All top phone flagship is out like lumia 930. Galaxy s5. Htc one m8.
I don't think they can make it such a useless company with a senseless C.E.O.
Finally the phone is too xpensive.
I think LG G3 will not make it at China,
1) Not dual sim
2) ZTE, Lenovo and Xiaomi almost the same spec or better but price is 50% cheaper.
How to compete? Brand alone will not make it. If samsung from 24% market drop to 12%, what make LG think they can make it, dream on....

LG finally said external memory slot to its flagship, and sold more than they expected! Just missing a few manufacturers handsets smartphone do not understand that "high-end" are not taken seriously unless they have external memory slot, I'm talking to you Xiaomi and Lenovo. This team LG G3 for my taste is the best smartphone today! Good for LG!
I agree with you in part, that LG have someone at Head Office who has booked marked GSMARENA
Apart from the hike in display to QHD the LG G3 is the LG G2 ADDING microSD and removable battery (technically it could be called the LG G2S!)
Those changes did the trick and in Korea the sale during opening period beat (brutally) a company called Samsung and ist S5 by a factor of 3 (THREE LG G3 were sold for each one S5)
China appears to be buying phones based on price, so whilst Xiaomi an Lenovo phone are not premium now the specs they offer now would make them premium say 2 years ago
handset sales over the most recent period 1st Xiaomi, 2nd Samsung; 3rd Lenovo 4th Apple.
lenovo are just 200,000 behind Samsung
High spec shigh price products are all losing out so the LG G3 @ $600+ IS WAY OVER THAT OF
MI 3 $241 Mi4 $320 and $400 16Gb 64Gb
another apple looking phone is the honor 6
The Huawei Honor 6 is $370
how it will fare IDK
Angry Mobile Nerd, 09 Aug 2014Actually for China that's very competitive pricing assuming that's for the China Mobile 4G mod... moreYou are right,but you have to consider some people there want buy the expensive one, not the right one.
Secret Service, 09 Aug 2014they cant make it. xiaomi huwei apple are the dominators thereApple who? Lenovo, Coolpad etc all sell better than Apple.
But yes, LG is close to non-existant i China.
Actually for China that's very competitive pricing assuming that's for the China Mobile 4G model. Usually when new flagships first come out on China Mobile (iPhone, S5, Note 3, M8) they're always around the 4500-5500RMB price range.
Checked! LG finally said external memory slot to its flagship, and sold more than they expected! Just missing a few manufacturers handsets smartphone do not understand that "high-end" are not taken seriously unless they have external memory slot, I'm talking to you Xiaomi and Lenovo. This team LG G3 for my taste is the best smartphone today! Good for LG!
I pity LG. They do not realize that the industry titan, Samsung, is about to launch its most important device of 2014. Not the Galaxy S5 or the Galaxy Alpha or another Galaxy Gear watch, but the Galaxy Note 4. Alas, LG's rise will be over before it has even begun. Intelligent buyers everywhere are making way for the Note 4 in their lives. LG doesn't stand a chance against Samsung in China, or anywhere really! Save yourselves the embarrasment, LG, and let the world's largest and most innovative smartphone maker lead the way.
Secret Service, 09 Aug 2014they cant make it. xiaomi huwei apple are the dominators thereSo you would rather choose Xiaomi ?
Secret Service, 09 Aug 2014they cant make it. xiaomi huwei apple are the dominators therethey will make it. LG vs Xiaomi. Really? why would u trust a brand that is less than 10 years old? I would trust LG that has been around for more than 30 years for mobile phones. I would never trust Xiaomi.
