This is just the beginning not Q1 story...their market share will continue to slide for years to come...China is now the laregst economy in the world (according to the Economist) and tend to favour local suppliers, surprise, surprise...and support export to emerging markets in Africa etc...Apple and Samsung need to invent a new gadget that will be purchased by billions...Kris

Companies want to make profits.  Market share does not matter if Apple and Samsung are losing ground in countries where most users cannot afford their phones and the margins that have made both of those companies successful.

Totally agree that profits count and not marketshare. Why do these "analist" still focus on marketshare; just parroting? I do hope they understand the business that they analyse.
