Apple iPhone is on fifth place? It should be ZTE or Oppo, not Apple!

Even though Apple is on fifth place, it's still low.

lol Apple can't even beat Huawei's and Lenovo's market share! xD

And this proves that you didn't read the article, and you didn't read my comment properly.

Do you understand? My comment have four Chinese manufacturers, ZTE, Oppo, Huawei and Lenovo. If the title says "Apple iPhone is number 5 in US with 8% of the market during Q1", I won't say "Apple can't even beat Huawei's and Lenovo's market share!"

And this proves that you didn't read the title properly, it says China, China man! Of course I know that the story in China will be totally different, you think I'm stupid? REMEMBER! The title says China, it shows the market share of these manufacturers in China. And there's nothing wrong with my comment.

Dark, what do you think about this kid above me?

I don't really ever see the iphone developing market share in china. There's too many fake iphones and cheaper, better alternatives like huawei and lenovo.

They make iPhones but don't get to use them. The irony.

If your family and countrymen were being enslaved to produce a product would you jump to spend your money to support such business practices?

Enslaved is a bit strong. No one is forced to work at Foxxcon.

Ok I'm open to suggestions what is a better description. Keep in mind I will no longer eat Poppa Johns pizza because they will not give any employees full time hopes as to not be required to provide health care even partial

Ok I will say this, I really want people to stop being so surprised at the "growth" in comparison to other countries. China has 1 billion plus people in the country. Isn't it safe to assume that this growth will not only be automatic but pretty much will outstrip every country and any known record in stats? Just saying.

I'm just surprised there's a story about fifth place. Agree with what you're saying, only country that comes to mind with this kind of market is India. Both are going to be key players in the mobile market.

Yes but the Fake iPhone 5 holds 50% of Chinas marketshare...
They might even export it to the US...
