The Smartphones manufacturing industry is a very competitive one. Smartphones have become an intrinsic part of our lives. It has completely changed the way people use mobile phones today. High-resolution cameras, faster processors, stylish appearance, more choices, etc. are all needed by consumers. In order to meet consumers demand, major mobile phone manufacturers are actively innovating. We are familiar with the mobile phone brands such as Apple, Samsung, LG, Nokia, Alcatel, etc., these world-leading mobile phone brands rely on technological innovation to maintain its advantages.
Mobile phone ranking 2018: number one Apple
Founded in 1976 by Steve Jobs and Ronald Wayne, today Apple is known for its elegant iPhone. Apple has a large customer base because it offers products with superior design and functionality. It can be said that Apple is the best mobile phone company in the world. It has an independent iOS system and has become a brand that people around the world desire.
Because Apple has always integrated rapid technological advances and evolving design methods, Apple is able to maintain the quality of its products. Many of Apple’s competitors are trying to imitate its features. They sometimes even take price cuts to gain market share. Unfortunately, this cannot stop Apple from having a large customer base.
As of December 2017, Apple has occupied a global market share in approximately 40 countries and 499 retail stores worldwide. Apple introduced the first generation iPhone in 2007. The latest flagship is the iPhone X that we are familiar with. This is the product that commemorates the 10th anniversary of the iPhone and is also the flagship of the iPhone.
Mobile phone ranking 2018: number two Samsung
Samsung mobile phone(I am a diehard fan of this brand) is the market leader in the global Android mobile phone industry. Through continuous efforts to improve product performance, Samsung has expanded its low-priced smartphones to the high-end mobile phone market of the wealthy class. Samsung is popular for its Samsung Galaxy smartphone series. Samsung also developed a new operating system, Tizen OS, for its smartphones. This has added a brilliant new product to Samsung’s technological innovation.
Recently, Samsung released the new colour matching “Burgundy Red” of the Galaxy S9 series. As the top flagship S9 series, it has previously won the title in the US consumer magazine. However, with the rapid development of domestic mobile phone brands, Samsung’s market share in China is gradually decreasing. However, Samsung’s global market share is about 20%, which makes it one of the top mobile phone brands in the world.
Mobile phone ranking 2018: number three Sony
We all know that Sony ranks among the top in the world in terms of digital products and video games, but the mobile phone business is relatively young. In 2001, Sony and Ericsson launched their mobile phone brand. In 6 years, Sony Ericsson, together with Samsung, Motorola, and Nokia, became the top brands in the mobile phone industry.
After the acquisition of Ericsson’s shares was renamed Sony Mobile. However, in recent years, Sony’s mobile phones seem to have been hindered by the appearance of an unchanging appearance, not the momentum of previous years.
Sony’s newly launched flagship Xperia XZ2 Premium is ridiculed by netizens as it weighs 236g, nearly half a catty, and is a glass body as a smartphone. Netizens said it was very easy to make a splash. It seems that Sony is still more suitable for manufacturing projectors.
Mobile phone ranking 2018: number four: LG
As the third mobile phone brand in the world, LG’s mobile phone design has always been at the leading level. LG is the mainstream mobile phone brand in South Korea. LG has suffered consecutive losses since 2015. Although it has seen a slight increase in the first quarter of last year. The latest flagship of LG is the G7 ThinQ. The G7 is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, and the rear dual camera 16 million pixels. This year’s flagship is standard, and there is nothing unique about it. According to the previous situation, the release of the G7 has estimated that the development of LG mobile phones has not been much effect.
Recently, LG chairman was hospitalized seriously, making LG Electronics stocks plummeting. It seems that the future development of LG mobile phones is difficult.
Mobile phone ranking 2018: number five Nokia
Speaking of Nokia, the first mobile phone used by many people is Nokia. This Nokia firm from Finland has been a big player in the mobile phone industry. Just because of the arrival of the smart machine era, Nokia once suffered a heavy blow. Now that its mobile phone production is designed by HMD, Foxconn is responsible for production. Last year, HMD sold nearly 10 million smartphones worldwide, and its performance surpassed that of Google, HTC and other brands, and is expected to show an upward trend.
Recently, Nokia has released a full-screen midrange X6 in Beijing. This is already Nokia’s sixth new machine this year. The phone uses the popular Liu Hai design, equipped with Xiao Long 636 midrange processor, 5.8-inch 19:9 display, rear dual camera and AI beauty blur, support QC3.0 fast charge, etc., starting price of 1299 yuan. Netizens said this is the cheapest full-screen mobile phone, and it can be considered a conscience. At present, Nokia ranks ninth in the global smartphone brand.
Mobile phone ranking 2018: number six Blackberry
Speaking of BlackBerry, this is a mobile phone that has always been attached to a full-keyboard mobile phone. With its high security and commercialism, it was used by multinational government personnel after the 9/11 incident and quickly became a popular Canadian mobile phone brand. It is only now that the mobile phone production has been handed over to TCL. 9 years ago, when the iPhone 4 became popular all over the world, the shipment of the BlackBerry reached 50 million, and the market value once reached 83 billion US dollars.
Last year, BlackBerry shipped only 850,000 handsets. In comparison, the iPhone sold only 77,300,000 units in the last quarter of last year, which is enough to see that the BlackBerry has failed. According to recent data, BlackBerry shipments are only around 500,000, and share prices are down 95% from their peak.
Mobile phone ranking 2018: number seven Google
We all know that Google search is the world’s largest search engine, and Google is also ranked top in terms of mobile phones. Google has Nexus and Pixel series. The newly released Google Pixel 2 XL, because it is Google Prince, software is naturally Google’s native Android operating system. It has a series of a high configuration such as Squeeze function. As Google’s “parents,” Google Mobile still has a strong competitive edge.
Mobile phone ranking 2018: number eight Motorola
Motorola is a mobile phone brand from the United States but has been acquired by Lenovo. Perhaps many people do not know that Motorola’s first model launched in China is what we commonly call the “Big Brother”. It is actually the Motorola 3200 mobile phone, which was a symbol of personal identity at that time. Motorola has created many firsts and has driven Chinese development in the entire mobile phone market in China.
Nokia and Motorola are mobile phone brands that carry the memory of a generation of Chinese people. Although these old mobile phone brands are not as good as they were in the past, they are still at the forefront of the world’s mobile phone brands.
