However, Apple is still the market challenger, holing the second place after Samsung. Other competitors , such a LG, Lenovo, and ZTE did not manage to reach even the 6% mark during the quarter.

Apple's growth is likely to accelerate globally assuming it launches a lower-cost iPhone and continues to penetrate prepaid markets in the quarters to come.
