Two separate sources confirmed Samsung’s woes in falling against number one foe yet best partner, Apple. This goes a long way to explain the company’s anger towards dozens of executives who were either sacked or demoted during the previous week.
According to Strategy Analytics, the Korean tech giant sold more LTE phones in 2014 Quarter 4 than anybody else except arch-rival, Apple. The report quoted LG as third highest LTE-enabled-phone seller during the period while Oppo and Vivo came in at fourth and Fifth respectively. It was also reported that LTE smartphones had a 57 percent year-on-year growth.
On the other hand, search engine giant Yahoo! announced that the Apple iPhone 6 was the most-searched mobile phone on it;s website. The Samsung Galaxy S5 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 came second and third in that order.
