Huawei wants to claim the #2 spot from Apple in the next two years

Huawei is currently at the third spot, which means the target it's set for itself isn't that far off, although catching up for Apple will take quite the mix of hard work and dumb luck...

They are talking about market share not particular users. If noone from people you know buys Huawei, it can still get to second position. The world has population beside people you know.

You mad, bro? Because what he said was absolutely true, and definitely didn't warrant the type of response you gave him.

Don't think so, Xiaomi new smartphones like Mi Note 2, Mi 5S doesn't sell globally since it announced, even Note 2 and Mi Mix won't available at Malaysia and Singapore, what a shame.

nope, they already get 4th place last year, and then thrown away to 6th place this year,,, thanks to their limited production capacity

Regarding to its high price and the fact that it's a pure Chinese brand, I think it's being too delusional. More likely LG will be the real 2nd place by 2018.

What are you talking about, @Hallyu? Your claim doesn't sound like a wise path of logic to follow. LG is way behind Huawei in current market share and sheer number of smartphone sales per year. Huawei has a better shot at grabbing the #2 spot in two years, than LG. Heck, Xiaomi and Lenovo/Motorola do have better chances than LG for the #3 spot in two years. Quote: "More likely LG wil be the real 2nd place by 2018" Are you kidding? Don't kid yourself.

If apple continues to release the same phone for three years in a row, they just might.

Let them get first even, what do I care?! I got the devices that suit me - I had no need for Samsung, so I haven't got one, even though S is no 1; I liked Huawei, I got one, even though H is no 3; I wanted an Apple device, I got one when A was at the bottom of the chart - and I will keep doing that in the future.

I don't care which brand will be ranking at first, I just only care which device are the best suitable for some consumers, because not every human are same. By the way, I loved Mate 9 than Pixel this time! :D

They must be sleeping and are in a dream which they still didn't wake up. Keep dreaming with that chance, in 2 years aah, they must be joking, who they think they are? They think because of the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco that they will surpass the biggest smartphone maker? They are totally mistaken and wrong about that. Next year with the Galaxy S8, Samsung will heat them alive.

But even so the Huawei Mate 9 seems to be a explendid smartphone.

Global smartphone giants like Apple and Samsung have failed in the market to a certain extent. Samsung failed because of the battery explosion of its Galaxy Note & Edge smartphones, whereas Apple has not been able to attract many new users. Keeping this in mind, Huawei, the Chinese smartphone maker is all set to take full advantage of this situation with its flagship phone i.e Huawei Mate 9 Smartphone. The company has added plenty of unique features and specifications that set it apart from any other smartphone in the market.

That of the Galaxy S7 Edge explosions were isolated cases and were people which wanted a new smartphone and provoked the explosions.

If they do, they'd most possibly achieve that from booming sales in China and probably India. They're getting more popular in the west yes but no way they'd be as renowned as Apple in two short years.
