In a patent case that started about seven years ago, a jury in a United States District Court in the city of San Jose in California has decided that Samsung should pay an amount of $539 million for infringing on no less than five patents owned by its fierce rival Apple. The South Korean tech giant is said to have infringed on these patents with the Android powered mobile devices it had released back in 2010 to 2011.

According to the latest report recently released by Gartner, the top five smartphone vendors across the globe during the third quarter of this year are Samsung, Apple, Huawei, Oppo, and Xiaomi, and except for Apple, all of them have registered double digit growth during the the three month span. Apple only recorded an increase in smartphone sales of 5.7 percent (more on Apple later).
Strategy Analytics has recently released a new report that says that the volume of smartphone shipments in the United States mobile market has hit 39.5 million units during the third quarter of this year. That figure however represents a 2 percent decrease compared to that of Q3 2016 (40.1 million units).
