Samsung over takes Apple

Samsung have officially sold the most smartphones in Q3 of 2013 after shifting 81.2 million devices and thus upping their market share to 31.4%.

Samsung’s market share is now so large that it dwarfs the rest of the competition put together. The likes of Apple, Huawei, LG and Nokia, amongst others, sold roughly 68 million between them, 13 million less than Samsung alone.

It would appear that the market dominance shown by Apple at the beginning of the smart phone age has now swung hugely in favour of Samsung. The most likely explanation for this is Samsung’s far greater range of products, such as the basic Galaxy Ace, to the flagship Galaxy S4, giving them a broader range of customer.

Regardless of who is now the market leader, IDC noted a 9% increase on the previous record breaking quarter for smart-phone sales between Apple and Samsung with 258.4 million phones being sold by the two corporations.

The increase has been accredited to the relative availability of smartphones with low cost or budget handsets becoming more and more available. China was also a big help, accounting for one third of shipments this quarter.
