Apple went up with a 20.2% YOY Growth keeping the second spot worlwide with 231.5 millions units shipped.
The difference between both is a BIG 40.30% more shipments of Samsung than Apple.
Huawei still growing with an extraordinary 44.3% YOY Growth. The company shipments were 106.6 millions units WW instead of 73.8 million units last year.
Lenovo and Xiaomi had a very interesting growing too, 24.5% for the first and 22.8% for the second in YOY Growth comparison.
However Lenovo and Motorola together did not go well with a minus -21.1% YOY growth. Sad for the Motorola brand that is not coming anymore in new Lenovo devices starting 2016.
It clearly seems the chinese vendors did a tremendous job in 2015 affecting both Samsung and Apple smartphones sales. They have also relegated LG to no place at this time.
