Samsung Top Smartphone Vendor

Samsung shipped in total 324.8 units in 2015, an impressive figure considering that the year was among the toughest for the smartphone vendor primarily due to the ever-increasing threat from low-cost smartphone vendors.

Apple, Samsung’s closest rival, shipped 74.8 million units in the last quarter of 2015 and a total of 231.5 million units in the 2015.

Huawei was among the best performers in 2015. The Chinese Based smartphone vendor shipped over 100 million smartphone units in 2015, achieving a 37% year-over-year growth.
