Samsung Mobile says that it ended the fourth quarter of 2009 with the top position in the USA's mobile handset market share, retaining the title for the sixth quarter in a row.
In addition to this distinction, the 2010 Brand Keys Customer Loyalty Engagement Index study ranked Samsung as the customer loyalty winner in the cell phone category, the only wireless handset provider to be awarded the honor for nine consecutive years. The national survey identifies brands that are best able to engage consumers by meeting or exceeding expectations, creating loyal customers. In the cell phone category, consumer preferences were based on wireless phone design and performance.
"The findings by both Strategy Analytics and Brand Keys establish Samsung as the mobile phone industry's unmatched leader in two distinct yet, complementary categories," said Dale Sohn, President of Samsung Telecommunications America. "The combination of brand loyalty and market share leadership are two excellent proof points that Samsung is surpassing our customer's expectations as a quality brand and building strong advocates for our mobile phones. Our ability to meet many different consumer needs at various price points signals the likelihood that Samsung will build on this success for many more years to come."
"The wireless category has shifted so dramatically over the past year that it is a tribute to the Samsung brand to be able to incorporate real consumer values as well as technology into their offerings," said Robert Passikoff, Brand Keys founder and president. "They have been better able to meet the very high expectations of more demanding consumers and this is reflected in the very high ratings they have received in the Brand Keys Customer Loyalty Engagement Index for 2010."
