Not surprising since the S4 wasn't available the first quarter. Samsung will gain back their share and then some following the second quarter but articles about that will be harder to find.

They lost last quarter, too, with the Note II.

The Note 2 is a niche device priced way above almost everything else on the market, not a mass market flagship.

Fu.ckin' duh.

Ardent: next time you decide to throw a blind personal attack at me just for the sake of being a contrarian ass, try to be:

1. coherent
2. witty
3. relevant.

Please?

Yeah, but in Q1 everyone knew the S4 was coming out soon. We still had healthy sales of the S3, but the S4 will likely jump up some nice sales for Samsung.

You Apple fans should keep deceiving yourselves. You think US is the only market in the world? When are you guys going to get it. iPhones are sold only in the US,go check Europe,Asia and Africa and you will know how much share Apple is loosing compared to Samsung. In my country the launch of the s4 caused a never seen before traffic. The longest queue was created at the mall.

Well... they've been available on more carriers now. I'd expect their market share to go up as they became available to new markets. Probably keep going up incrementally for a few more years. The problem would then be what happens once they've reached saturation. Everyone who wants an iPhone will have one so all they'll be seeing is equipment upgrades, not new customers. They better have something actually new to offer people by that point to keep them interested.

I care more about which OS holds the highest marketshare. Oh looky! It's Android :D

McDonalds also sells the most burgers in the world.

Irrelevant, but since you brought it up...of course they sell the most burgers. They have the largest fast food chain. Common sense.

And, the worst tasting burgers
