Answer is that they simply launched better products, bang for buck products in every category to capture the market.

Huawei's biggest market was China itself and then Europe. Huawei's Europe market might be eaten by free-for-all including Chinese OEMs, Samsung and Apple. Again, Europe market was not significant compared to China.

But that's not the point. Even if Huawei was no. 1 in sales, Samsung & Apple were not the one who benefited most from Huawei's downfall. So, stop singling them out.
Would Samsung lose money if Huawei became no. 1? It's just for bragging, important thing is how much they are selling.

And that thanks to the American ban, they have fallen.

I mean it's unreasonable that any brand should do good that offers good quality devices with a more attractive price than previous years. It must solely be based on Hauwei's absence that their sales are so high.
