The stats come from the ever-industrious market watcher Tomi Ahonen, who crunches the sales data from the four big analyst houses (Gartner, IDC, Strategy Analytics and Canalys) to get the total numbers for this quarter.
Then he uses a combo of OEM figures, other public sources and internal estimates to conjure the remaining data.
Ahonen's latest Q2 numbers show increased dominance for Samsung in the OEM space and Android in the OS market.
He reckons overall smartphone sales hit 153 million units for Q2, which equates to 695 million sales for the year. That's 43 per cent up on 2012.
Samung sold 5.4m in the quarter to get 32.9 per cent, and lead Apple (with 17 per cent) and Nokia (6.7 per cent). What a turnaround. Ahonen notes how 18 months ago Nokia was more than twice the size of Apple which was twice as big as Samsung.
