Fun with analysts

"IDC attributed this to... its strong performance in the low-end $250 price segment. This was further bolstered by the release of two high-profile flagships... Samsung also released a cheaper version of the Galaxy S20"

So Samsung did well because of its strong performance in the low-end segment, it's strong performance in the high-end segment, and it's strong performance in the mid-range segment. Almost as though they just generally did well without any specific segment being responsible. I guess analysts get paid by the word?

"Xiaomi also performed well, clinching third place from Apple"

I assume that's actually Xiaomi in fourth and Apple in fifth. And quite possible Samsung and Huawei in second and third, although Samsung might still be top. I don't understand why BBK is always split into separate brand names in these reports.
