Samsung is the largest player in the mobile market, its share exceeds 20%. However, the issue of profits Samsung, alas, second place. The company is inferior to its main competitor-Apple.
Cupertinos took in the fourth quarter of 2017, more than 50% of the total income of the market, which is a good result which was achieved through the rise in smartphones. Thus, the average cost of smartphones sold, Apple made about $ 800. Meanwhile, the average price of smartphones in the world rose from $ 255 to $ 300 dollars. The growth amounted to 15%. By the way, the average price of Samsung smartphones is around $ 254. It says only one thing: Samsung provides a high level of market share only at the expense of low-cost smartphones, while the leader is not so popular.
In the case of Huawei average price of smartphones was 205 dollars that the Chinese manufacturer is pretty good. By the way, Huawei’s revenue is on third place with 7% of the market. Of course, this is a ridiculous figure, but I still think this result is worthy.
What is the result? Apple again took half of the market, Samsung is the market leader for the supply of devices, but at an average cost of smartphones lags behind even the world average values.
