yet another source that pegs samsung as the worlds largest smartphone maker. When are you going to just give it up and ban yourself, taco?

No matter what numbers you look at in that report, I'm no math wizard, but Samsung's numbers are bigger than Apple's in every category. So, just how did remix lose? I haven't been posting here until recently, but I have been reading threads for quite some time. Samsung beat Apple. Very simple to see, at least for people that can read numbers.......

Gallito, did you go to Taco's school of reading?
the information provided in this article is FROM Q1 2012. Its just recompiling everyone's quarter numbers. And if you read the article, it again says that Samsung beat Apple in pure smartphone sales in Q1.
" Samsung is also the world’s biggest smartphone maker, bigger than Apple, while Nokia fell to a mere third in smartphones."

samsung saturated the market with mostly low end devices... but still doesnt dominate in the US.. Samsung may be the biggest smartphone maker.. but seller... thats still Apple...

That's pretty close though, a difference of 3 million handsets. Granted, that's a lot, but not more than a few strategic moves could resolve or decrease the gap

I feel for those that got stuck with Samsung low end devices...

Well, according to another article here in PA, the most popular android device is the S2. Not very low-end in my opinion.

Don't get it wrong, but I guess plastic is sometimes better than glass...

Yeah, cause plastic wouldn't shatter like glass, but for optimistic people they could refer their glass shattered device as vintage.
