Samsung Galaxy series still maintained the top-selling family worldwide, but premium tier model Galaxy S4 and Note 3 slipped on the list and saw declined volume share this quarter. In contrast, mid tier mode Gand II and Trend series outperformanced the above two premium tier flagship models driven by the healthy demand in emering markets.

Xiaomi is rising quickly, its Redmi (Hongmi) phone jumped into the top 9 slot, up from the tenth position last quarter.
