This smartphone manufacturer beat Samsung and Apple in Mexico


Last updated: September 26th, 2022 at 13:19 UTC+01:00

On average, Samsung is the world’s largest smartphone manufacturer. However, it doesn’t lead all its rivals in every market and performs better in some regions than others. In some markets, Samsung is the leading brand by a wide margin. While in others, such as Mexico, the company is trying to maintain its spot on the podium.

Mexico has an active smartphone user base of around 127 million, and needless to say, there are benefits to leading the mobile game in the country. But it’s neither Samsung nor its biggest rival, Apple, at the top of the food chain in Mexico. According to a recent report, Motorola was the leading OEM in Mexico in Q2 2022, with a smartphone sales share of 28%. (via Telecompaper)

Motorola keeps a tight grip over the Mexican smartphone market

Although Motorola led the country’s smartphone scene, Samsung was, thankfully, the second-largest OEM in Mexico during the three-month period ending in June. The company captured 26% of smartphone sales throughout the quarter.

Apple followed Samsung in third place. The Cupertino giant rose 3% to capture 16% of the market. Motorola’s share in Q2 2022 increased by 5%, while Samsung’s share remained flat from last year. Other notable smartphone brands were Xiaomi, Oppo, and Huawei. Xiaomi held 13% of the market, while Oppo and Huawei captured 11% and 5%, respectively.

In other news, Samsung’s chief recently visited Mexico to meet with President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, but this had little to do with the company’s performance in the smartphone segment in Q2. Instead, Samsung’s Lee Jae-yong has requested support from the Mexican President for Busan World Expo 2030.

Samsung Gaming Hub is the best thing that ever happened to cloud gaming

If someone were to tell me a year ago that Samsung is the answer to cloud gaming, I would’ve probably laughed or looked bewildered thinking of that notion.

Apple finally brings Samsung-like AoD implementation for iPhone 14 Pro

Apple’s iPhones didn’t have the Always-On Display (AoD) mode that has been present on Samsung’s Galaxy phones for generations. With the iPhone 14 Pro, Apple finally brought AoD, but the phones consumed a lot of power. And that’s because Apple’s implementation of AoD was unnecessarily flashy compared to Samsung’s.
