I ran into an article on top 14 phone makers over at PhoneArena, and thought enthusiasts, geeks and fan boys and girls here will be interested in it. Below is the list of the top 14 phone makers globally by percentage of overall phones shipped:
1. Samsung – 27%
2. Nokia – 15%
3. Apple – 7%
4. LG – 4%
5. ZTE – 4%
6. Huawei – 3%
7. TCL (Alcatel) – 3%
8. Lenovo – 3%
9. CoolPad (Yulong) – 2%
10. Sony – 2%
11. BlackBerry – 2%
12. HTC – 2%
13. Xiaomi – 1%
14. Motorola – 1%
It is interesting to see where the different brands stand by volume of devices compared to others.
If you head over to PhoneArena, you will find other charts that show more interesting statistics. For example, another chart shows how Nokia and Samsung – both of who are ahead of the rest of the pack by huge margins – have simply traded positions with one another (with Samsung upstaging Nokia), and they have retained the gap between their combined figures and the those of the rest. Interestingly, the same giants, Samsung and Nokia, are also the world’s largest feature phone manufacturers.
Alcatel used to be the buzz in these parts and then went AWOL. The surprise here is that the brand is still selling truck loads of phones. But where? Asia? South America? Also, it is interesting that with all of BlackBerry’s woes, they still sell more phones than HTC, and even Motorola.
What are your thoughts?
