I guess this is a good reason for all Xiaomi fans to celebrate, they deserve it. According to a recent report by research firm, Strategy Analytics, the Chinese company has returned to its former place as 5th in the list of the top five smartphone brands in the world.

The latest figures look really promising for Xiaomi. At the beginning of last month its shipments for the second quarter of the year reached 23.16 million units, but this report by Strategy Analytics puts the figure at 23.2 million units and the company’s market share at 6.4%, which basically translates to a 5th place in the world!

The same report puts Samsung at the top with 79.5 million units compared to Q2 2016’s 77.6 million. Apple is second place with 41 million units sold, and Huawei is third with 38.4 million units. Chinese behemoth OPPO is fourth but has recorded the highest increase, jumping from 18 million units in 2016 to 29.5 million units in the same quarter this year.

      LOL you mean Oppo sub $250 is pure craps underpower low-end mobilephone.

      Yeah Xiaomi is too conservative, even in Singapore the mobile prices are much more expensive compare to china prices or india (prices never go down compare to the date they released the model, try 1-2 years ago !!!!) .

      Well i guess we are not their primary target countries LOL, sad but truth. This is why the international buyers bought from other china brands like OnePlus, etc
