Apple IPhone Share Shrinks as China’s Huawei to ZTE Lure Users

Apple Inc.’s share of the global smartphone market fell to its lowest in three years in the second quarter as more consumers chose inexpensive handsets from Chinese makers over the iPhone.

Apple shipped 31.2 million devices for 13.6 percent of the global smartphone market, researcher Strategy Analytics reported yesterday. That’s down from a 16.6 percent share a year earlier and trails market leader Samsung Electronics Co.’s 76 million shipments and 33.1 percent market share, Boston, Massachusetts-based Strategy Analytics said.
