Top smartphone vendor in China during April was Samsung
According to  Hong Kong paper Ming Pao Daily, Korean manufacturer Samsung had the largest market share among smartphone vendors in China during the month of April. Based on data from Sino Market Research, Samsung's 18.8% slice of the Chinese smartphone pie gave it a comfortable lead over second place Coolpad, which had 11.5% of the smartphone market in China last month.

Unknown in the U.S., Coolpad is one of a number of domestic smartphone producers who have great numbers in China but are shut out in other countries. Domestic manufacturers accounted for 71% of the smartphones sold in China last month, while international manufacturers were responsible for the remaining 29%.

Lenovo, which said over the weekend that it wants to start selling smartphones in the U.S. next year, was a tad shy of Coolpad's share with 11.2% of the Chinese smartphone market. Huawei and ZTE rounded out the top five with 10.1% and 6.4% of the market respectively.

On a big fan of android most especially with HTC and Samsung but I'm starting to relize that Samsung with all its success and huge market share, Samsung to me is starting to become the next apple, like outing there heads up so high thinking they are unstoppable. Any of u agree?

I don't care of what they think, I care of end products, and they are putting insane money back to improve. If not for Samsung, smartphones would still be on iPhone level. Of course there's always a chance they become comfortable and along comes a great new company, but they haven't slowed down quite yet, flexible displays, foldable tabtops, wearable gadgets, smart cameras, all-device synching etc., they have plans 5 years ahead.

Is this the reason why Samsung is releasing multiple identical devices with different price tags? To target every market? No wonder samsung grabbed the no.1 spot

Dodgy chinese stat's as usual. The total equates to 58% . Add 5.4% for Apple and it becomes 62.4. Where is the other 37.6% ???

Must they punish the other western OEM's really, plus China has its own companies putting out excellent smartphones too. Duh!

Domestic manufacturers accounted for 71% of the smartphones sold in China last month, while international manufacturers were responsible for the remaining 29%
