    Huawei surpasses Apple in smartphone market

    Huawei has surpassed Apple for the first time, becoming the second-largest smartphone vendor in the world, market research firm International Data Corp (IDC) said.

    During the second quarter of this year, global smartphone vendors shipped a total of 342 million units, down 1.8 percent compared to the 348.2 million units shipped in the second quarter of 2017, IDC said.

    The drop marked the third consecutive quarter of year-over-year declines for the global smartphone market and the fourth quarter of decline in history.

    IDC attributed this to a "churn in some highly penetrated markets", although many high growth markets still exist and should return smartphone shipments to overall growth.

    Samsung remained the leader in the worldwide smartphone market with shipments of 71.5 million units, despite a 10.4 percent decline in shipments from last year.

    Huawei delivered shipments of 54.2 million units to move into the second position with a record high market share of 15.8 percent.

    Apple dropped to the third spot for the first time, despite its second quarter growth. Apple shipped 41.3 million iPhones, representing modest growth of 0.7 percent over the 41.0 million units shipped last year.

    US does not ask for fair treatment in trade as it already receives equal treatment with everybody else. US regime wants privileged treatment, which it will not get. I guess, they know well that, under free trade conditions, most of the monopolies they hold now will be gone in no time.

    For instance, in a fair trade environment, Japanese automakers will not only hurt US automakers in the US market, but let them experience a swift economic genocide.

    This is why the US is a hateful anti-Made in China 2025 prick. If they open their market to Huawei in a fair competition, Huawei will (in Trump's words) rape their monopolistic smart phone company.

    Yet, Made in China 2025 will go on regardless US happy or unhappy and the rest of the world is big enough to make Huawei world's number two.

    Congratulation our Chinese brothers. Another milestone to overthrow the dirty, double standard US regime. You should lead the world and become the beacon of free trade.

    Despite Huawei P20 pro is not allow to be carried by US telcom but that does not mean American cant import this phone...



    The increase has to do with large number of these parallel import into USA.

    Until China bans Apple, confiscates their property, investigates their employees, refuses to ship Apples parts and goods..

    Apple will be the first $0 company.

    Spot on. Apple generates the majority of global profits in the smartphone market (around 70% last time I checked).

    Indeed, it is telling that the more the US asks for privileged trade status, the more they lose in competition against others. As I say, in a free trade environment, how big a chance would a junk-maker General Motors hold against Toyota or Subaru?

    The answer is: Very little.

    Hence, now we are in a situation in which if China decides to punish GM in China's own market, GM will go bankrupt.

    In this case, free and fair trade is no longer enough for many US business as they are not better than many other foreign competitors.

    This is Huawei in China's market.

    Huawei is 1/3rd the size of Apple. Just because you sold more cheaper and shittier phones, doesn't make you the better company.

    I purchased a Huawei once, returned it in a couple of months.

    This....Apple is quality. It's why their market value is approaching $1 trillion.
