Samsung Overtakes Apple to Become Top Traded-in Mobile Phone Brand 2014

If there was one trend which seemed prominent for phone manufacturers in 2013, it could certainly be seen as releasing as many phones as possible. Even Apple decided to release a cheaper alternative to its flagship smartphone, which seems a strange move for a brand which had previously focused on high-end pricing.
Apple was no competition for brands using Android though. The likes of HTC, Samsung and Sony brought out phones of the budget, mega, mini and damage-proof variety – in a bid to appeal to as many phone users as possible, whatever they wanted to use their devices for.

Samsung’s Galaxy range in particular seemed never-ending. The manufacturer revealed the Galaxy S4 Mega, S4 Mini, S4 Zoom, Note 3 – and I really could keep on going. But it seems that this stream of releases hasn’t just had an effect on Samsung’s sales.
