  • Apple’s iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s Account For 42% Of Global LTE Smartphones


    New metrics show that Apple’s iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s represent 42% of global 4G LTE smartphones. The data was from Counterpoint Research for Q1 2014 and shows that the company has kept more than 40% share of LTE shipments. This information means that more than one fourth of smartphones shipped worldwide are from Apple’s iPhones. The global lead is so big that the company’s iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s sales outsell all different LTE phones released by Samsung.

    Other LTE mobile phone companies Apple beat out include Sony, HTC, Sharp, Huawei, ZTE, Motorola, LG, Sony, Nokia, Pantech, BlackBerry, Lenovo, Coolpad, Kyocera, and more. Apple pretty much dominates all LTE sales even though they only started making LTE-savvy phones with the iPhone 5 in 2012. Another piece of information Counterpoint Research notes is that USA accounts for one in three LTE smartphones shipped globally, then comes Japan in second, followed by China in third. It is said that China will surpass Japan at the end of this year for second largest LTE smartphone market globally behind USA in 2015.

      Apples with Apples please.
      Even if the results are the same you should compare Apple with Samsung and iOS with Android. That said, super cheap does not equal crappy. There WILL be people that prefer one or both parts of the Android eco system, (I am not one of them), but I can keep an open mind.
