Although its smartphone business had some problems lately and the results did not match the high expectations, Samsung is doing great in the mobile processors and storage markets. Later this year, the company is expected to manufacture CPUs and GPUs for AMD, and its lead of the NAND flash storage market remains as strong as usual.

According to data from DRAMeXchange, Samsung controlled 33.6 percent of the NAND flash memory market in October-December 2015, while its main competitor, Toshiba, only scored 18.6 percent. The third position belongs to SanDisk, with 15.8 percent. During the third quarter, Samsung had 31.5 percent, while Toshiba did better than in Q4, holding 20.5 percent of the market.

2016 will be a very interesting year for Samsung, and it will be a serious challenge to continue its overall growth. DRAMeXchange also added that "Samsung was one of the few manufacturers that experienced revenue growth in the fourth quarter of 2015 on account of its lead in 3D-NAND Flash development."

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
