    Nowadays, Zoomers are born with an iPhone in their mouth

    I still prefer Samsung phones because I like their quality. Sorry, Apple has just lost its touch.

  3. Mga Kuwento ni Minyong on January 11, 2023 at 2:40 am

    what about lenovo

  4. N3gn4v on January 11, 2023 at 2:42 am

    2018 Apple sinks after removing 3.5mm audio.

    for how known the name is i am actually suprised at how little phones blackberry sold even during its peak. they really were just focused on buisness customers and not the general market i guess

  6. Nathaniel Babalola on January 11, 2023 at 2:44 am

    What Trump did to Huawei was terrible, smh

  7. Frodokeuh on January 11, 2023 at 2:45 am

    Nokia put all their eggs in one basket and lost everything

  8. Bilal Mentor on January 11, 2023 at 2:45 am

    Why lg left the market?

  9. Andre Paul on January 11, 2023 at 2:48 am

    What happend to Sony Mobile Phones? Such a shame…

  10. james klusener on January 11, 2023 at 2:48 am

    Huaweis fall was so dramatic

  11. The Raging Platypus on January 11, 2023 at 2:50 am

    I loved my Motorola phone.

  12. LM on January 11, 2023 at 2:50 am

    Iphone is the best phone.

  13. ZOOM-RA on January 11, 2023 at 2:52 am

    Oppo+Vivo+Realme+OnePlus=BBK.

  14. teleroel on January 11, 2023 at 2:52 am

    Palm showing up until the iPhone came on the market. And then Nokia losing marketshare since 2011.

  15. Delta on January 11, 2023 at 2:53 am

    fun fact: Honor was sold by Huawei so that they can at least get their phones out of the international market again, the only thing gone is just the Huawei branding.

  16. Automotion on January 11, 2023 at 2:56 am

    philips,siemens,lg,blackberry my favourite

  17. Phone Psycho on January 11, 2023 at 2:59 am

    Huawei was destroyed by America of jealousy

  18. Tasty on January 11, 2023 at 3:00 am

    I almost forgot how cool Siemens used to be as well as Nokia and Sony Ericsson, and Motorola

  19. भारतStats on January 11, 2023 at 3:02 am

    Nokia: Once top of world now nowhere

  20. Rick Robinson-Donnellan on January 11, 2023 at 3:06 am

    Yet still to this day my friends here in Australia still say they’ve never heard of Xiaomi. I will refer to this video next time they think it’s a cheap knock off brand.

  21. Hasib Chowdhury on January 11, 2023 at 3:06 am

    Is Google Pixel not on this? The Samsung Galaxy S series is the most popular one compared to the other ones.

  22. Data Is Beautiful on January 11, 2023 at 3:08 am

    I enabled Super Thanks on my videos. What the hell is this?

  23. Andreas Johansson on January 11, 2023 at 3:11 am

    Watching the king (Samsung) of smartphones win on a Samsung.

  24. zemethius on January 11, 2023 at 3:11 am

    My first was a brick Motorola. Nice to see they’re creeping back up.

  25. Mal Ant on January 11, 2023 at 3:12 am

    Nokias dominance over 10 years was highly commendable. The smart fone era killed them off despite nokia themselves putting out a few of them

  26. The Raging Platypus on January 11, 2023 at 3:12 am

    Never heard of Sagem

  27. MESSI THE GOAT on January 11, 2023 at 3:12 am

    Nokia was CREATIVE with their phones back then.
    But the 2010’s came and what we all NEEDED was INNOVATION afterall.

    You can make many phones with all sorts of bizarre form factors but still is just a BASIC PHONE.

  28. BelicSeriesYes CrimeSeriesNo on January 11, 2023 at 3:13 am

    Samsung and Apple is down….. Chinese phones is the king

  29. Lau Lau on January 11, 2023 at 3:16 am

    To bad for Huawei they should be nr 1,I had 3 of them,Huawei nova 5t performs like iPhone 13 and way better than s22 ultra I had

  30. Smapowr on January 11, 2023 at 3:16 am

    Apple will perish unless frozen.

  31. Nicolai Fleckenstein on January 11, 2023 at 3:17 am

    I would have guessed Google would show up somewhen in 2021 or 2022…

  32. random Nerd on January 11, 2023 at 3:20 am

    The fact that Nokia sold 470M units at it’s peak and no other brand has come close (minus Samsung at 430M units), says a lot about quality over quantity.

  33. Toyota Corolla Cross Hybrid on January 11, 2023 at 3:20 am

    Lg 😭 Samsung 😎 ❤️🌹

  34. Eric Turner on January 11, 2023 at 3:20 am

    So right now Apple and Samsung are having a big competition with Samsung barely inching ahead. I have a Samsung phone so I guess I’m part of the "winning" team.

  35. Brutal Kid on January 11, 2023 at 3:22 am

    Where’s oneplus ?

  36. Beaglefreilauf Kalkar on January 11, 2023 at 3:23 am

    Can you do one with, is stead of markeetshare, profitshare, as in how much of the profit made in the mobile phone industry is made by each company?

  37. Team Stark on January 11, 2023 at 3:23 am

    Samsung ❤️

  38. John Smith on January 11, 2023 at 3:26 am

    I had a Siemens phone, for some reason the keys were always sticky.

  39. Andre on January 11, 2023 at 3:27 am

    Check out my Motorola Krazor
    It’s like the Motorola Razor… but better.

  40. DD on January 11, 2023 at 3:27 am

    Nokia still had the best ringtone maker and acoustic sounds tho

  41. Đức Cháu on January 11, 2023 at 3:27 am

    Honor is Huawei…

  42. T MOnkey on January 11, 2023 at 3:28 am

    Huawei 😢

  43. Elijah Meadows on January 11, 2023 at 3:29 am

    HTC was the shit 💯

  44. The_lux_one Deluxe on January 11, 2023 at 3:29 am

    Pixel 😂 where are you? Lol😢

  45. Windows Mapping on January 11, 2023 at 3:29 am

    Tecno still keeping up with top brands today, especially with the launch of their new best budget phone, Pova 4

  46. Angel Zavala on January 11, 2023 at 3:29 am

    I have a samsung! 🇺🇸💖🇰🇷

  47. Kino Fan on January 11, 2023 at 3:32 am

    Finally there is no Huawei

  48. The Raging Platypus on January 11, 2023 at 3:34 am

    Never have known anyone with a Siemens phone and I lived in Germany.

  49. Loveisfun123 on January 11, 2023 at 3:34 am

    Nokia should’ve made phone cases. Seems like a missed opportunity. Had Nokia phones that would survive any drop. No cracks or anything. Nokia phones were absolute tanks

  50. Golden Boy on January 11, 2023 at 3:36 am

    Us that’s numbers is $ or selling phones?
