Smartphones
Not just Samsung or Apple, most smartphone manufacturers are profiting from huge sales thanks to online advertising, flash sales and whatnot, which are reducing the marketing costs and at the same time making them known to people with minimum cost. Wind back to 2013 and I would have stopped myself from buying a phone that said "LeTV" on it but thanks to the positive marketing, I'm willing to give that phone a shot because I hear it is a good brand offering great specs and good software

Re: Smartphones
I think with other brands trying to catch up to the mammoths of smartphone industry, it is likely that these brands can match upto them in about a year or two. I have no questions on the capability of a brand, because it is people who make and break a brand and none of the phone companies have really had bad reviews.

IDC
I'd like to point out that according to IDC, Samsung finished the year with 324.8 million shipments. More than 93 million phones than Apple.
I don't know if I understood correctly, but also on the IDC page, it mentions that "Others" shipped 625.2 million phones in 2015. Who exactly are these others players in the phone market?
