Smart devices and the market share of their company
After the hard competition in smart devices started in 2007 now there are a lot of people who are willing to argue about which device is better. There are even whole teams defending one side or the other they are mostly Samsung – Apple based but there are also other fans who claim that neither Samsung nor Apple are worth the try and they insist on a third-party device that has been unnoticed but it deserves attention and approval.
At this point we may talk about our preferences or about the device that we consider has the most potential or the company that we like the most, however, this probably is not the right thing to do and it will not help anyone far from helping our favorite company. Samsung and Apple have put the basis of the smartphone market and maybe called somewhat of godfathers to it. However, now there are a lot of companies that produce high-end smart devices, some at exclusive prices, and are based mostly around the Android OS since the smaller once just got wiped out (excluding the BlackBerry OS), and Apple offers iOS only on iPhones. There is also Windows Phone which is still hanging on and is doing pretty good.
But now we should take an unbiased look at what the smart devices market looks like and who is in the lead and who is making progress and what are the companies that deserve the most interest. On the pie chart above you can see how the market share is separated between the different companies this also includes mid-range and low-class devices and feature phones. Even if we exclude the feature phones the picture does not change much with the exception of Nokia. So now thanks to ABI Research we can now see all that raw information and judge how each company is doing on the global scene.
