Samsung was the top brand to be shipped all around the world with nearly 400 million phones shipped during the year, 396.5 million to exact. 1 of the 4 mobiles shipped was relating to Samsung, which allowed them to snatch 25 percent market share in the world of cell phones.
The main reason behind Samsung's successful campaign in 2012 was its beautifully designed Galaxy series. Nokia was the second best brand of 2012 shipping 20 percent of total mobile phones shipped. Nokia was 2011's number one brand but due to Samsung's Galaxy series the demand for its handsets went down during the year. Strategy analytics declared Samsung, Nokia and Apple the top cellular brands of 2012 which was quite obvious after high demands were observed throughout the 2012 for the brands.
