Due to Apple’s sales dip and the health growth of up and coming Chinese brands, the iPhone’s share of global smartphone sales fell from 17.9% in the first quarter of 2015 to 14.8% in that period this year, according to Gartner. Despite fears that the smartphone market is oversaturated, global sales continued to grow 3.9% to 349 million devices. Here is how Apple’s competitors did:
• Samsung’s share also slipped from 24.1% to 23.2% during that period.
• Huawei’s share skyrocketed from 5.4% to 8.3%.
• Oppo more than doubled its share from 2% to 4.6%.
• Xiaomi stayed the same at 4.3%.MB
