Samsung overtook Apple to become the world's biggest shipper of smartphones between July and September.
About time. People need to wake up and stop buying the brands and get what is actually GOOD!
Agreed, Brand loyalty is the reason alot of Smartphones just go unnoticed.
Is this one of those there's more phones with droid so its got better market share type of thing. How many different phones does samsung sell.
So the mistake of a competitor to create only one device makes this point moot? I think not.. It doesnt change that Samsung is making phones(and selling) desirable phones.
And it's so deserving, their Smartphones have nothing but amazing, i have owned Galaxy S & S2 & i loved them. It's about time Apple's Brand loyalty died, i hope this will be kind of an eye opener for Apple & now they get on making some serious advancement with their next iPhone.
their brand loyalty isn't dieing anytime soon. i see more apple branded products in a day. its disgusting I have a picture somewhere of a water fight and you had to give some your your phone to hold. on that table were about 70 phones. 50/70 were some form of an i phone.
I have a samsung focus WP7, amazing phone, I am happy Apple is not number 1 anymore.
same here time to break up the tiers
Good Job Samsung. I used to be a loyal Apple user. But their ecosystem just sucks - -. Apps are too expensive and all my good songs are stuck with iTunes forever. Its not great if you have more than 1 ipod in your house and if you want to transfer music to your PS3 or other devices. So if you're with Apple, you are stuck with Apple. I guess some people are just stuck. Loyal.. right lol
SO happy for them. I remember around this time last year or 2 years ago when samsung came out with the plan for the galaxy line and I just knew it was gonna work give every carrier your phone and let it go to work. I didnt know that they shipped that much though
The Iphone released late and wasnt on the quarter -_-
Very true. The Iphone 4S sales are going to be posted to next quarter's revenue. Meh, but we'll revel in Android's victory on this day.
Im glad samsung have managed to do this but i think the iphone will be top again over the next 3 months but i do see a pattern here that samsung are starting to challenge apple and i dont think it will be long before they start to sell mpre android amd wp7 phones over the iphone. I just hope htc over take apple soln too. And apple need to watch out for nokia over the next few years as having the backing of ms and wp with nokia design could be just what nokia and wp needs to get the big push going.
this what apple gets for stoping samsung from making chips for the iphone. samsung is a wonderful company with quality products across the boarder, way 2 go samsung keep up good work
All is finally right in the world of electronics now. Andriod 4.0 (AKA Ice Cream Sandwich) is lightyears ahead of iOS5, to the point where it's influenced my decision whether or not to go Apple or Android when getting my next smartphone.
*facepalm* July - September hello? most people were waiting for a new iphone those months.. but next quarter Apple will slap Samsung in the face! and Droid or Ice cream fanboys will cry like a little girl...
