The smartphone industry is such a tough place to compete that it is hard to keep a company's top position: Everyday the priorities of people are changing and they are looking for new horizons of telecom industry. A few years back, Nokia was at considered as a top company of cellphones, then Samsung started commanding the world of cellphones, and now a days, it seems that it's Chinese are aiming to occupy the top position in this industry.
