Good point. I agree.Only true at the top end though. In this country I would think it's mid to low range where all kinds of cheap androids dominate. And everyone does appear to own some sort of cheap samsung too.
Globally, in Q1 this year Samsung and Apple actually dropped their combined shared YoY, from 49% to 47%. Samsung did 89m units, and Apple 43.7m. Next were Huawei (13.4m) and Lenovo (13.3m), with the rest flogging another 125m.
