Apple leads the LTE phone market in Q3 2014, Oppo And Vivo enter Top 5
For 2014's quarter that began on July 1 and came to an end on September 31, Apple remained at the very top of the market for LTE-enabled devices by revenue. This got revealed by Strategy Analytics' quarter report, which covers this fast-growing segment of the global handset market. Samsung and LG are, however, following closely and waiting for Cupertino to step off on the wrong foot, but that doesn't seem likely to happen anytime soon.

The big surprise here is that Vivo and Oppo have not only entered Top 10 of the largest vendors of LTE phones, but have reportedly nestled comfortably in Top 5, which is nothing short of a big success for these China-based makers indeed.

As a whole, the market for LTE-enabled smartphones has reportedly risen by 57% in Q3 2014 in comparison with the quarter before, which makes it one of the fastest growing segments on the market. Apple is breaking sales record after sales record with its newest iPhone offerings, and naturally, this dominance on the market will most likely result in an undisputed dominance in the current quarter as well, but we'll find out if this is truly the case in a few months' time, most probably.
