Samsung not only claims dominance in the OLED market, where it has long held the lead, but also in LCD production for smartphones.
iPhones completely dominated the US market between March and January 2018, with the 64GB iPhone 8 declared the nation's most popular handset, followed by the 64 gig iPhone X.
Both Samsung and Apple contributed to Europe's shrinking Q1 2018 smartphone shipment numbers, but the iPhone X was easily the continent's most popular model, according to Canalys.
Many analysts rushed to deem the iPhone X a flop, but this flop managed to outsell all other smartphones in the world between January and March 2018.
The global tablet market is not exactly thriving, but detachable tablets are doing well, and they will continue to grow, according to the IDC's research and projections.
According to Strategy Analytics, Xiaomi more than doubled its share of the global smartphone market between Q1 2017 and Q1 2018, while Huawei achieved a new quarterly record.
According to the latest Kantar Worldpanel ComTech report, Xiaomi and Huawei's smartphone sales are rapidly growing in Europe's top five markets, while Apple is doing solid business in China.
Xiaomi might be the champion of overall smartphone shipments in India, but Samsung still has the regional premium crown. Then again, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ have been eclipsed by the OnePlus 5T during Q1 2018.
Just as expected, worldwide tablet shipments are down again after a surprisingly solid holiday quarter, looking at yet another big drop in Q2 2018.
Samsung's Galaxy S9 and S9+ are reportedly not doing very well in the company's homeland, but neither is Apple's iPhone X.
It may be a while before global smartphone sales start surging again, but in the meantime, vendors can be very happy about recent average price trends.
If the most recent Canalys numbers are correct, Samsung shipped 8 million Galaxy S9 and S9+ units in a single month, while iPhone X shipments totaled just 14 mil for the entire first quarter.
Fresh Canalys research has Xiaomi topping the smartphone shipment charts in India between January and March 2018, at a total of 9 million units, compared to less than 7.5 mil for silver medalist Samsung.
Apple is the unrivaled world heavyweight champion of smartphone profits, according to the latest Counterpoint Research analysis, with the iPhone X proving particularly lucrative during Q4 2017.
According to respected market research firm Strategy Analytics, both the Sony Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact are better in battery performance than the LG G6, iPhone X or Samsung Galaxy S9.
Due to iPhone X sales failing to meet expectations, the number of financial analysts predicting lower numbers for all of Apple's current handsets is growing.
Android loyalty numbers are higher than ever in the US, according to Consumer Intelligence Research Partners, although iOS customer retention is not too bad either.
More and more countries around the world are enjoying "truly exceptional" 4G LTE availability scores, according to OpenSignal, but speeds are no longer surging at the usual pace.
Finnish startup HMD Global reportedly shipped as many as 4.4 million Nokia smartphones in Q4 2017, and close to 60 million feature phones in total last year, looking at even higher numbers for 2018.
The stock Android-powered Google Pixel smartphone line is still only getting started, but that doesn't make its 2017 box-office result any less disappointing.
Apple Watch shipment numbers were up impressively both in calendar Q4 2017 and for the full year, including robust Series 3 LTE sales.
Rookie smartphone manufacturer HMD Global reportedly managed to sell a boatload of intelligent Nokia devices last year, coming very close to the global top ten OEMs.
According to both Strategy Analytics and IDC, Apple dominated global Q4 2017 smartphone shipments, while Samsung finished the year in first place.
