However, this morning, we are learning that a LG has overthrown Huawei and taken the number three spot.

 

In Q1 2012, LG shipped 10.3 million smartphones (4.9%), which trumped Huawei by over 300,000 units. Samsung currently holds the top spot (69.4%), with Apple falling in at about half the market share (33.1%) of the Korean Galaxy S4 giant.

 

The key to LG's growing success is that it sells many different phones in many different markets, unlike Huawei who is only available in limited markets at this time.
