The Top 10 positions are mostly populated by Chinese companies. Although, heavyweights are not willing to lose their top spots in the near future.
Samsung has been on the top for several years now. The Korean giants have dominated the industry with its amazing Galaxy and Note series. In the past few years, they have added budget phones in their line-up. These mid-range cell phones are also performing well in the market.

And to be honest, iPhones offer the best overall experience. They are fast, reliable, secure and offer regular updates. IOS is simple and glitch-free.In the benchmark tests, Apple’s iPhones have always beaten Android top-notch devices. Only this year Samsung S10 series has produced a performance as par with Apple phones.

Oppo does not shy about coming up with innovative features. In June 2016, Oppo became the biggest smartphone maker in China, selling its phones at more than 200,000 retail outlets. The biggest challenge to them is the Huawei Phone’s better reputation in the market.
Vivo entered the top 10 smartphone maker’s list in 2015. Since then their market share has increased gradually. Vivo focuses on the mid-range market and they have produced a number of amazing budget phones that created a respectable following.
Xiaomi has a large fan base in China. In 2014, Xiaomi becomes the largest smartphone company in China. The company also enjoys a lead in India. Its smartphones include Mi Series, Mi Note Series, Mi Max Series, Mi Mix Series, and the Redmi Series. Xiaomi operates in a different manner by profiting from its software services and cutting smartphone prices to attract customers. This strategy had really paid for them.
Founded in 2013, OnePlus has become a very popular smartphone manufacturer across the world.OnePlus is considered one of the most respectable and reliable names coming from china. They introduce one device each year which shows their commitment to quality. Their android skin is the best.OnePlus Oxygen OS provides fast stock android experience with regular updates. After Google phones, the OnePlus Phone’s UI experience is the most satisfying.
The South Korean electronics company enjoys a reasonable position in the Mobile market.

LG is credited to be one of the early manufacturers to introduce bezel-less screen design.
The company is known for its computer products, especially laptops. Lenovo Thinkpad is one of the best-selling business laptops in the USA. The company entered the smartphone market in 2012 and quickly became the largest vendor of smartphones in China. Lenovo invests heavily in the R&D program for mobile phones. The target is to be number one in mainland China. Cell phones like Lenovo K8 Note gained a lot of popularity in markets like India and China.
Nokia which once was the King of cell phones is struggling to revive its name in the smartphone business. Nokia’s story is a little similar to Yahoo’s which also failed to understand “What’s Next?”.But Nokia is certainly bouncing back. They did the best decision of dumping Windows phones and adopting Android. The end of last year and 2019 is proving a good time for Nokia. Mobile phones like Nokia 8, Nokia 7, and Nokia 6.1 have grabbed users’ attention and customers are starting to bite on the old king.
