Apples iPhone 7 is the worlds most popular smartphone

iPhone 7The market share of Apples iOS platform isnt quite as huge compared to Android. However in terms of actual smartphones, it seems that is where Apple might have Android beat, or at least when you compare them brand to brand. This is according to Strategy Analytics whose latest report claims that Apples iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are the worlds most popular smartphones.

According to the numbers, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus take the number one and two spots in terms of global smartphone shipments. In Q2 2017, the iPhone 7 accounted for 16.9% of global smartphone shipments, while the iPhone 7 Plus accounted for 15.1%. Coming in third and fourth is the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ at 10.2% and 9% respectively.

However we should note that shipping figures dont necessarily translate into actual sales figures, but in the case of Apple and Samsung in which both companies tend to experience sellouts, we wouldnt be surprised if the shipping figures and sales figures are actually pretty close with each other.

Also take note that this is for Q2 2017, meaning that next quarters figures could tell a different story, Lets not forget that there are upcoming smartphones that many are excited for, such as the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, the Google Pixel 2 handsets, and of course Apples 2017 iPhones, which is expected to include the iPhone 7s, 7s Plus, and the 8.
