Xiaomi tops Indian smartphone market for eighth straight quarter

Xiaomi has now been India's top smartphone seller for eight straight quarters. The company has become a constant headache for Samsung in the world's second largest smartphone market as sales have slowed pretty much everywhere else in the world. Its closest rival, Samsung -- which once held the top spot in India -- shipped 9.3 million handsets in the nation during the same period, settling for a 25.3% market share.
