China is the biggest smartphone market in the world, even it is bigger than US. That makes many vendors battling to increase market share on that country. Nokia was the top smartphone vendor last year. Don’t want to lose its position, Nokia made some agreements with local operators in China to safe Nokia market share in China.
Unfortunately Nokia can’t maintain its position at the top with that agreements. Samsung steals the top position from Nokia. Apple is on the second place, followed by two well known smartphone manufacturers from China, Huawei and ZTE. Lenovo is on the fifth place. The sixth is Coolpad. Nokia is only on the seventh place. Behind Nokia are Motorola, Xiaomi, and HTC.
