Gartner has released a new report on smartphone sales for the second quarter of 2015. Worldwide sales totaled 330 million units in the quarter, a 13.5% increase year over year.

Despite the launch of new S6 models, Samsung's premium phones continued to be challenged by Apple's large-screen iPhones. Samsung lost 4.3 percentage points in market share and declined 5.3 percent in unit sales in the second quarter of 2015. Huawei recorded the highest sales growth rate of 46.3 percent, thanks to strong overseas sales and 4G smartphone sales in China. iPhone sales increased 36 percent, which helped Apple gain 2.4 percentage points in market share. Apple recorded strong iPhone replacements in both emerging and mature markets — and particularly in China. Total iPhone sales in China grew 68 percent to 11.9 million units.

Gartner notes that Apple's double digit growth negatively impacted its rival's sales and profit margins. Many vendors had to realign their portfolios to remain competitive in the midrange and low-end categories, leading to price wars and discounting to clear inventory for new devices planned for the second half of the year.

Android's global share was affected by the weak performance of China in the second quarter of 2015 and the strong performance in China of Apple, which has taken share from Android for the last three quarters.

"Android saw its lowest year-over-year growth of 11 percent with share reaching 82.2 percent in the second quarter of 2015," said Mr. Gupta. Microsoft continued to struggle to generate wider demand for Windows Phone devices — even at the lower end. "In light of Microsoft's recent cuts in its mobile hardware business, we'll await signs of its long-term commitment in the smartphone market."

Quality comes with price. People who want quality they will pay the price. Apple give quality phones to their customers. I have iPhone 4s for 4 years and is still going perfect. Even the new ios 9 software which will be launched by Apple in September will be compatible with it. It cost me £459. When I bought it. It's still as new as I bought it four years ago. So people who like simple and quality phones they will always go with Apple. I when I decried to change my phone I will change with new iPhone, because it's worth it paying the price. One of my friend bought Samsung S4 when it came out, he paid £400 for it. With in 8 months the whole screen went black. It cost him £150 to replace it. There are numerous example like that with Samsung phone. So it's up to individual what they want and how much they want to pay.

I once used an android tablet my dad won with the other prize he really wanted. Not that he wanted the tablet, but that's another story. The tablet was already breaking down after a week of using it. Charger responds when it wants, random freezes, sad card slot gave up after 2 years of owning it, took several minutes to turn on from when the battery died because it charges so slow, too many tabs opened can make me barely get back into the Internet, games sometimes glitch out, and many other fed up problems it had bought me.

1. What difference would it make if it was for Samsung in the first place? iPhones cost that high because of its parts anyway. 2. Apple isn't limited to their products. Most other products support home kit and HealthKit which can take an advantage with Apple. 2. Samsung only had more because they're trying desperately to e pans on different models which only have one different by shape or build style of the phone.
