Smartphones Q3 Final Numbers, Top 10 biggest manufacturers
 

So its that time of the year. We're in the Smartphone Bloodbath wars, Year Three: Digital Jamboree. Its Q3. We now have all four big analyst houses who have reported their total market size numbers (IDC, Gartner, Strategy Analytics and Canalys) and as I always do, I use their average as my 'official total' and then fit the best possible fit, of the biggest manufacturers, operating systems etc to get the Top 10 market shares. I also report on the installed base, and for every quarter, I report individually for the manufacturers, how I think they're doing in the market share wars. So lets start with the top numbers

So, first, Moto-Moto falls out of the top 10? Wow, goodbuy Google smartphones, eh? And who jumps in to replace it? Lenovo with its LePhone. Didn't you know Lenovo makes smartphones? I'm not surprised, so far they've only sold in China but are now eagerly expanding for example into India. Yes, already a Top 10 sized smartphone maker and yes, this is the same Lenovo from China that bought IBM's branded PC operations some years ago.

Other big news, Nokia tumbles from 3rd place to 10th, and is facing expulsion from the Top 10 as well - there's another hungry Chinese smartphone maker, Yulong, which sells smartphones under the Coolpad brand, who may topple Nokia already in Q4. The top is settled, Samsung rules this race now and Apple is in secure second place. Huawei is jumping ahead of the rest of the pack, and watch Sony, it finally is back to making smartphones profitably and showing aggression on the chart.
