While Samsung remains on top, Xiaomi and Apple took share as did smaller rivals like Huawei, Lenovo, Coolpad and Meizu.

Honestly ask your self this question because if these phones are region locked and they travel to another country where the gsm or the region code doesn't work then what are you going to do i would rather have samsung at least i can run a custom o.s and unlock the phone for all regions.

Manufactures dont usually lock phones is the Carrier that locks them. You could have Samsung phones lock if you buy them from a carrier or you could buy it unlock if you buy it directly from Samsung. Example of unlocked phones are Nexus and OnePlusOne. OnePlusOne is a Chinese phone and it works with GSM carriers in the US.
