So wait... Are you saying that we do not know which one ranked 1st for the full year 2015, Apple or Samsung? I knew Apple had a good year but I thought it was not THAT good!

Hi Teemu

LOL yeah, good point. We do know Sammy won the race and Apple finished second.. I didn't mean that, and my readers here will know that it is what I've been saying for the full year but yeah.. good point, I guess I should go add that to the blog. Thanks

After Nikkei reported a drastic cut in iPhone 6s/6s+ component orders following inventory build-up at retailers, I somehow doubt that Apple managed to increase their sales in any significant way.

But maybe Apple stuffed the channel in order to pad their Q4 numbers, who knows.


Speaking of Lenovo... They really REALLY try to compete with Elop for the dumbest choices ever made. Now they are dumping the Motorola brand (which they bought for all those dollars). Consumers will stop seeing the Motorola name on Moto products. Instead, they'll be branded "Moto by Lenovo".

No wonder Huawei is passing them by on the fast lane.

to all

Xiaomi just reported 61M final number for 2015. I have posted fresh blog about it.
