zEven if the Chinese market is very hard to be interested by expensive smartphones, Samsung has a very nice road ahead as the sales are growing and growing. Chinese people often look for cheep devices to satisfy their needs and also be in concordance with their financial possibilities. Apple and Samsung tried hard to enter this market, but it seems that Samsung is in a big advantage for the moment.

The first quarter of this year was a very good period for Samsung and we can find out why if we look at the impressive number of sales: 12 million units. Samsung is in top of the list from 5 quarters in a row and this is a nice performance over Apple, the big rival of the company. The company has made a new record with this number as their 12 millions in the first quarter is the best performance since the beginning of the tops and the first number over the 10 million step.

So, the Chinese market is led by Samsung which has about 18.5% of the market by its side. The second place finds Huawei with 8.1 million sales and the third position is occupied by Lenovo. Apple is far behind the leader with only a half from the total number of sales of Samsung. There is still a good thing for them that there are companies which are placed beneath. This is one of the best starts from Samsung, but the question is for how long they will do it so good.
