Smartphones topped feature phones on sales chart for first time


Smartphone sales finally eclipsed the sale of traditional feature phones for the first time in 2013, though smartphone revenue will likely slow as consumers choose from cheaper devices, according to research firm Gartner. Despite the good news that smartphones have outsold feature phones, manufacturers will have to deal with dropping prices and slower-than-expected revenue growth.

Samsung, Apple and Huawei led the global market in shipped units during 2013, though Lenovo, LG Electronics, and other manufacturers are fighting for consumer attention.

"While the top three mobile manufacturers are dominating the global mobile phone market, their share collectively fell in the fourth quarter of 2013 and yearly as Chinese and regional brands continue to raise their share."
