Apple’s iPhone X remained the world’s best-selling smartphone in March

According to the latest research from Counterpoint’s Market Pulse April Edition, Apple’s iPhone X remained the best-selling smartphone in March, dominating the whole first quarter to be the number one smartphone.

The sales of iPhone 8 Plus improved during March, due to a push from Apple making it the second best-selling smartphone globally.

Xiaomi’s Redmi 5A became the best selling Android smartphone in March, a first for Xiaomi. Redmi 5A was also the third overall best-selling smartphone model in March. Entry-level smartphone share slightly increased after good performances from Xiaomi, Samsung and some of the local brands in the India, SEA, and Africa markets.

MacDailyNews Take: You know, because iPhone X cost so much that it was DOA and iPhone 8 Plus was just more of the same and wouldn’t sell well at all, dontcha know.

  1. Probably of more significance is that iPhone models accounted for more than half of the market share of the top 10 smartphone models.
    What is interesting is that the entire Top 10 took in less than 20% market share. It suggests a situation similar to the large number of tiny companies in the netbook market before it collapsed

  2. Not only that but the most profitable Smart Phone in the world, shame on those analcysts who put down Apple with dooming and gloomers. Where are they now?

  3. Meanwhile, at Samsung…
    “Look how better is our latest flagship smartphone compared to a 4-years old iPhone6 (which we anyway had to slow down)!”
