India provided one of the few bright spots for smartphone companies in 2018, with shipments up 10% to 137 million units, an increase of 12 million units over the previous year.
Smartphone shipments fell for the fifth consecutive quarter in the final quarter of 2018, with 375.4 million units shipped, a drop of 4.9% year-on-year, the technology analyst firm IDC says, according to its preliminary figures for the year.
Apple overtook Samsung in the final quarter of 2018, shipping 71.7 million iPhones to become the top smartphone vendor for the period, with Huawei, OPPO and Xiaomi making up the top five for Q4 2018, the analyst firm Canalys claims.
This is an unbearably good headline :-)

5G will save us, and the NBN will have to be redone anyway.
As always, a great article Sam.
I will never forgive him.
