Samsung Shipped More Phones Than Apple, LG, and Nokia Combined in Q3

Samsung dominates mobile phone market in Q3

The numbers for the global mobile phone market are in for Q3 of 2013 and Samsung has come out a huge winner. The numbers show that Samsung shipped more phones than Nokia, Apple, and LG combined. Samsung captured 29% of the global mobile phone market during Q3 according to Strategy Analytics.

Samsung shipped a total of 120.1 million mobile phones last quarter. Overall Q3 racked up a 17% increase in global mobile phone shipments compared to a year ago. Strategy Analytics says that much of the strong demand for Samsung devices came courtesy of the popular Note 3 and the Galaxy Y as well as other mass-market devices.

The second place spot in the global mobile phone market went to Nokia with 15.5% of the market. Apple had 8% of the global mobile phone market for Q3 with LG grabbing 4.4%. The fifth-place spot went to Chinese mobile phone maker Huawei with 3.5% of the market. Nokia's share of the mobile phone market around the world was down significantly compared to a year ago.

"Nokia shipped a slightly better-than-expected 64.6 million mobile phones worldwide in Q3 2013," Strategy Analytics executive director Neil Mawston said in a statement. "Nokia's 15 percent global mobile phone market share is showing signs of stabilizing sequentially as demand for the Microsoft Lumia smartphone range is improving. However, Nokia's feature phone unit remains a problem-child as global volumes dipped -27 percent year-over-year."
