Canalys: Over 250 million smartphones shipped in Q3 2012 According to the latest figures from Canalys, smartphone shipments jumped 44 percent year-over-year, surpassing 250 million for the Q3 2013.
Samsung and Apple unsurprisingly led the pack, followed by Huawei, Lenovo and LG. Samsung had 34 percent market share, followed by Apple at 15 percent.

Android remained king, as well, followed by iOS, and Windows Phone managed to jump 185 percent to 4 percent market share. Windows Phone was the second most popular OS in 19 countries, including Finland (home of Nokia) at 39 percent share, Italy at 15 percent share and Russia at 8 percent share.

Another interesting fact was the breakdown of devices by size. 5" or larger display smartphones accounted for 22 percent of total shipments, with 66 percent of those devices having a 5-inch display. 3 percent had larger than a 6" display.
