Huawei Overtakes Apple to Become Second Biggest Smartphone Maker
(Bloomberg) -- Huawei Technologies Co. overtook Apple Inc. to claim the No. 2 spot in smartphones in the first quarter, moving a step closer to its avowed ambition of displacing Samsung at the top of the market.
The networking giant,, grew shipments 50 percent from a year earlier, research firm IDC estimates. It was the only name in the top 4 that managed to expand volumes as the overall market slid for the sixth consecutive quarter.
Huawei’s been steadily gaining on Apple and Samsung Electronics Co. with an increasingly high-end line-up of devices, particularly in its home market of China. The iPhone maker this week projected quarterly sales that topped analysts’ estimates, suggesting demand for iPhones has stabilized after a disappointing holiday period. Samsung also enjoyed a spike compared with the fourth quarter thanks to the launch of the marquee S10 range in February. IDC reckons Huawei should cling to the No. 2 spot over the rest of 2019.

华为手机不错，比新款iPhone 11好看多了…iPhone 11体积庞大，摄像头还是突出来的……iPhone 4s到iPhone 6 Plus都还不错，现在iPhone手机的体积太大了

iPhone and Huawei are both made in China. Apple should have cared about the American assembler first.

I just got my Huawei P30 Pro. This is my first Huawei smart phone and I am already in love with it. After years of small problems with my iPhones, I finally decided to give Huawei smart phone a try based on others recommendations. I have to say, it is the best phone I have used so far in terms of technology, battery life, features, and beautiful pictures taken with the best camera for smart phone on the market, Can't wait for the 5G version of it.

It’s not about quantity; it’s about quality. Chinese people are poor and with billion population. Huawei is the best choice for them not apple.

If every American bought an Iphone Apple would still not sell as many phones if only 1 in 3 Chinese bought a Huawei phone.

Well when you stop to innovate this is what happens. Look at Apple products lately, what is special or new about it? Their products are becoming boring and are very slow to adapt to market changes.

I believe Huawei already number 2 in the last quarter, and it should be closed in on Samsung in this quarter.

They forgot to mention that this statistic is just looking at smartphone distribution in China.
