Samsung's 2014 was not what the company expected, and the problems the world?s largest smartphone maker experienced have been well documented. 2015 will need to see an improvement for the Korean giant, but the bad news from 2014 has not been left behind entirely as it was revealed by CCID Consulting that the company's market share in China fell by 31.5% through 2014.

At the start of last year Samsung was the top of the Chinese market with 20%, and while the company managed to hold on to number one in the country, its market share has now fallen to 13.7%. Apple and especially Xiaomi are the chief architects of Samsung's decline and it is predicted the slide will continue through 2015, with Xiaomi likely to overtake the company.
