Once again, it’s up to the Android community to put a point in our mouths and be silent in the face of the evidence . Counterpoint Research, one of the best-known consultants in the smartphone sector, hason your website which have been the most sold mobile phones in the world so far. Yes, it hurts to recognize it, but Apple takes infinite advantage. As the owner of this post says, five of every ten phones sold in the world are iPhone , although not all is bad news.
As you can see in the image below, the iPhone X has been crowned as the best selling phone in the first quarter of 2018 , with a market share amounting to 3.5% . In second position we find his little brother (or big, depending on what we look at), the iPhone 8 Plus , which has remained with 2.3% of the cake.
In third place we have a surprise, and that is that, for the first time, Xiaomi sneaks into the Top 3 of top-selling phones. And it does not do it with a mobile phone without high-end frames, on the contrary. The third most sold mobile in the world so far in 2018 is the Xiaomi Redmi 5A , a device with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage whose selling price in Spain is 79 euros at the exchange rate. There is nothing.
If we keep going down in the ranking we find the Oppo A53 in fourth position. We can not forget that Oppo, together with Vivo and Huawei, is one of the most important brands in China. It is normal that this terminal is in the upper half of the list. At the equator of the list appear the South Korean range stops, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 + , with a market share of 1.6 and 1.6%, respectively. He is closely followed by iPhone 7 , also with 1.6%, and the iPhone 8 , with 1.4%.
Finally, the tail of the list is occupied by one of Samsung’s midrange, the Galaxy J7 Pro , and, lastly, the Iphone 6 , whose sales amount to 1.2% of the total. Taking account and grouping by brands, the market has been divided as follows:
What these numbers are telling us is that the mid-range is emerging and becoming an increasingly viable alternative for the consumer . Be that as it may, the numbers are the numbers. It seems that the iPhone X is more alive than ever, although not as much as the iPhone 6, which has since its inception with a good presence in these rankings. We will wait to see how the year ends .
