Samsung reaches its highest smartphone market share in South Korea

Image
During Q3 2020, Samsung accounted for 72.3% of the South Korean smartphone market. What you need to know A new market research claims that Samsung reached its all-time high smartphone market share in South Korea during Q3 2020. Samsung's 2020 lineups including the Galaxy Z Flip, Z Fold 2, and the Note 20 series were key contributors to the growth in market share. Due to increased competition from Apple's new iPhone 12 series, Samsung's market share is expected to see a drop in Q4. We recently reported Samsung's Q3 2020 results, which showed that the company's smartphone sales jumped almost 50% quarter over quarter. However, according to a new market research report spotted by SamMobile , that jump brought Samsung's smartphone market share to its all-time high record in South Korea. According to the new report, Samsung reached an all-time high 72.3% of market share during Q3 2020, which is the first time the company has crossed the 70% mark in the coun

When adding new Android features, Google needs to be more like Samsung

Image
Why do features we see from phone makers take so long to make it into Android itself? Google likes to tell everyone that Android is all about choice. We have hundreds of great phones that all run on Android, and you'll probably be able to find exactly what you want when it comes to things like color or size or price. From the top phone makers, you also find a little extra. Sometimes, you find that same "extra" in every great phone except Google's Pixels . There's a reason this happens. Google Pixel phones do not run bare-bones Android built using only the open-source version. Like Samsung or LG or OnePlus, it takes that code and adds a little to it. But the system itself only uses the standard set of APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) that Google has built for Android while companies like OnePlus or Samsung use those to add in some of their own for their apps to use. That doesn't mean that the Pixel doesn't have its own features — the great ca
