Huawei and Samsung are so close now it's meaningless to say any one has a bigger market share.Nice add-on to Solarz's post. 66% in China but how well globally? 29% well! Other Chinese phones are taking a bit of a hit, which isn't a problem; as I had said before, it would be a huge problem if the US used these Chinese brands filed with American parts to take away Huawei's domestic lifeline in China's market. It seems that won't be happening... but with all this unexpected global growth, domestic lifelines are of less and less consequence.
Lastly, respect to Samsung; they are a tough tough dog to beat. If they hadn't lost huge market share in China over THAAD, they would have been even tougher.
Huawei’s shipping so many phones, the global market is growing again
Of course, the real challenge is next year, when Huawei will be really divorced from Google, barring a miracle.
