Apple iPhones Dominate Top 10 Most-Popular Smartphones in 2022
According to a recent report by Counterpoint Research, Apple has taken over the smartphone market by occupying eight out of the top 10 slots for the most-popular phones in 2022. This marks the first time that Apple devices have dominated the top 10 list.
- Only two budget Samsung phones made the list, and they were the only Android devices to crack the top 10.
- The top three devices were the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro Max, and the iPhone 14 Pro Max respectively.
- Other Apple devices that made the list were the iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 12, iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone SE 2022.
Counterpoint Research also noted that the iPhone 14 Pro Max out-sold its standard and Pro stablemates, while the iPhone 14 Plus failed to crack the top 10 list, suggesting that it is a sales dud for Apple.
What About Android Phones?
Unfortunately for Android OEMs, only two budget Samsung phones made the top 10 list, and they were both LTE models rather than 5G devices. These devices were the Samsung Galaxy A13 and the Galaxy A03, which ranked fourth and tenth respectively.
It seems that Android OEMs have a tough road ahead if they want their phones to make the top 10 list in 2023, especially with the global smartphone market experiencing a decline.
