ZTE basically is the OEM manufacturer for umpteen cellphone brands all over the world which sells under different brand names. Thats how they got the 4rth place. Havent even seen a ZTE branded phone till now. The model is different compared to other manufacturers and obviously the profit margins will be razor thin.

ZTE is not a popular brand among many levels of consumers where as apple is a popular brand. Inspte of that ZTE comes to the 4 th level and apple next to ZTE. Good marketing and a product from ZTE

Amazing that so much tech press time and attention is on Apple and the iPhone when ZTE has risen by some measures even faster to a higher position with a different strategy

If ZTE keep this pace then according to the figures they will probably replace LG from the 3rd spot. I think if the headline would compare ZTE with Apple in terms of growth and market shares then the article would get more attention!

ZTE has focused its products, and in regions, mostly where others haven't. They have not tried to make too many models to cover the whole market spectrum, but only those models which suited their customer base. The Y-Y unit volume change is impressive nonetheless. Too bad the report did not compare profit margins as well. ZTE's margins might well have been lower than the others.

Its a shame to see the inventor of the cell phone drop so low in its rankings. Maybe the split of the company will help them focus.
