Although repairing a Samsung Galaxy flagship will soon become an impossible mission, it looks like sales are not bad at all. In fact, a fresh report from TrendForce reveals that Samsung managed to increase its shipments during the first quarter, but also to maintain its position as leader of the global smartphone market.

According to the report mentioned above, global smartphone shipments in Q1 2016 were 292 million units, down from over 358 million in the last quarter of 2015. In the first part of 2016, Samsung controlled 27.8 percent of the market, followed by Apple with only 14.4 percent. The next three smartphone brands are Huawei, Lenovo, and Xiaomi. 

While Apple managed to keep the second place, iPhone shipments have fallen from 75 million in Q4 2015 to just 42 million units in Q1 2016. On the other hand, Samsung exceeded expectations and shipped 81 million units in Q1 2016, a 2.5 percent growth over the last part of 2015.

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.
