  I appreciate your sentiment but don't get your knickers in a twist!   Strategy Analytics is simply doing the same as all the other research companies (Gartner, IDC, Canalys). Although there are minor differences in their methods and results they give us a pretty good idea of what's happening in the market. Where else are you going to get your figures?   Loosely, the definition of 'smartphone' ( by the analyst houses) has been a phone that can accept 3rd party...
  That would have been IDC. http://forums.appleinsider.com/t/155634/apples-iphone-grew-to-25-1-global-market-share-in-2012   I pointed out they had made an error. post #23   But most people seem to just prefer headlines to .... facts.   IDC have since corrected and updated their full year's figures. http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=prUS23916413#.UQbeTo7OYqY   iPhone 21.8% for Q4. 19.1% for the full year.
OK, one more time for those who can' be bothered to click the links I posted above.   Total smartphones for the year is NOT 545.2 million, according to IDC's own figures.  
  Yep. Well IDC's figures are wrong. (Total smartphones 2012)   http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=prUS23455612#.UQKN2I7OYqY http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=prUS23624612#.UQKN7Y7OYqY http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=prUS23753512#.UQKOFI7OYqY http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=prUS23916413#.UQKOM47OYqY   Total should be around 700 million.         Well the discrepancy is so large perhaps a little fact checking might have been in order AI ?
  Do you mean at Verizon and AT&T in the US?   Yes sir!
  Why don't you click on the link directly above your post? Figures published every month.          No. Only you know it's 80% globally. And my guess is, that you are now talking about sales share and not the installed base. It's your post that is misleading, not the OP.           Put some effort in yourself. http://appleinsider.com/articles/13/01/03/apples-share-of-us-mobile-phone-market-grows-to-185           Therefore 0% sales mean nothing, and 100% also? I get it.
  It's telling the overall picture of sales!      
  And at "around 50%" the iPhone 5 is "the best selling one".

  Yep. It's not quite the same strategy as expanding your market by creating the iPod Mini followed by the Nano and the Shuffle. Or by expanding your tablet market by creating the iPad mini... but it seems to be working. Apple have expanded their market from $850 to $450.    Source   Hardly any market left then! ;-)         Yes 75% is great. It's fantastic! But it's an exaggerated number because Nokia and LG etc are selling hundreds of millions of phones each year, but...
