The figures are in from IDC for smartphone shipments for the first quarter of 2016. In no surprise, Samsung is still top of the chart, with a very comfortable lead with 24.5% marketshare. Apple is in a somewhat distant 2nd place with 15.3%. And Huawei is in an even more distant 3rd place with 8.2% marketshare.
The surprise is that Lenovo and Xiaomi have dropped off the table. Damn. Who replaced them? Oppo (5.5%) and Vivo (4.3%).
The Chinese are still ruling the smartphone market though – three of the top five brands are red. Both Samsung and Apple recorded a drop in shipments, with Apple taking the bigger dip.
