Apple Is Trouncing Samsung In China

A recent report by IDC shows that Apple has had a very solid grip in the Chinese market following the launch of Phone 6 and 6 plus.

The story is too old to be commented.

Samsung seriously needs play its cards well. Dropping shipment by over 50% year in year our isn't goodnews for any mobile vendor.

Considering most of Samsungs devices run on Googles Android and China blocks quite a few of Googles services, I can't say I'm surprised that Apple are popular over there.
I'd take a handset that works over a nerfed one anyday.

Apple is not popular in China. It is more popular than Samsung, but it isn't the best selling phone there.

I'm not sure this is much of a surprise. People in most countries usually choose a homemade product over a foreign made one.;)

You're joking, right? Many Samsung phones are made in China.

dcbronco944d ago

I'm sure Samsung makes phones all over the world along with their other products. But they are still mostly a home business. With the phones being made at this place

As it says in the article, that's where they paid the writer to visit, but they have production plants all over, including China.

I'm sure Apple's new US plant will be just as dolled up and press-proof compared to the trashy factories that they use in China, same as Samsung.

Well Apple does make a great product.

and then sell them at a high price.

Nothings stoping you from getting the low end model ;)

dcbronco944d ago

The high price of the low-end model stops me.

LOL_WUT944d ago

@dcbro Don't be cheap not everything should be free ;)

dcbronco944d ago

Wut no one is asking for free. I don't mind paying a reasonable price. But the markup on Apple products is a little much. It cost them less than $350(?) for each top tier iPhone. $900 is overpriced. They could make a very nice profit at the $600 price point.

Yes, but what are the top selling mobile phones in China?

Edit: ok. 5 other brands are tops. Apple is beating a poorly selling Samsung. Umm, congrats?
