Analytical agency Counterpoint published a report on the most popular smartphone manufacturers in 2018. In the top 3 around the world is quite expected to include Samsung, Huawei and Apple. The Korean company, most likely, was able to take the first place thanks to a wide range of models: the flagships of the Galaxy S and Note series, and the budget holders J and A.
Huawei has about the same situation: it has a lot of good smartphones, and also a subbrand Honor, not inferior to the parent company. But with Apple things are different: here you either can buy yourself an iPhone, or not. Nevertheless, 11% in the world market – an impressive figure.
In addition to the overall rating, Counterpoint prepared separate infographics for each of the regions.
With Asians, everything is clear – local brands like it here. This is especially true of China, where local manufacturers and huge fabulists with two SIM cards are supported.
In North America, Apple is very cool: the corporation twice bypasses its closest rival Samsung. It’s strange to see in this ranking Alcatel in the 5th place.
And in the following three regions taxis Samsung, leaving Apple far behind.
Counterpoint decided not to make a separate ranking of smartphone manufacturers in this report, but our region was shining the last time:
At us, all practically as well as in Europe: on the first place Samsung, and behind it follow Huawei and Apple. At the same time, it can be seen that the share of Chinese manufacturers has grown significantly in one year, which is not surprising: the phones are cheap and work decently.
In addition to the rating of the most popular smartphone manufacturers, this report also contains information about fixed telephones. The market is in the lead of Jio, and Samsung has only 6% of sales.
And here is the rating for different regions:
Interestingly, the sales of fixed phones grew by 5%, and smartphones, by contrast, sank by 2%. But in fact, such a difference is not very felt on the general background: minus 2% of 363 million is a drop in the bucket, and an additional 5% to 111 million does not give any weather.
