iPhone 13 is the best-selling smartphone in the world in the first quarter of this year. This statement was made by IDC analysts based on the analysis of the mobile device market. At the same time, they did not name the total number of iPhone 13 sold and its market share; confining themselves to a statement that this is the most popular model on the market in the first three months of this year.
In second place was another Apple model – the iPhone 13 Pro Max. This suggests that users are willing to pay more to get a smartphone with a large display, good battery life and a good camera. But in third place was the relatively affordable Samsung Galaxy A12, which sold better than other models of the South Korean giant.
The fourth position was taken by the iPhone 13 Pro and rounded out the top five most popular Samsung Galaxy A32. This ranking shows that the iPhone 13 series is well received by users and its devices have become market leaders in terms of sales. The company will once again come out in the black and will be able to make decent money on sales of their smartphones.
Top 5 best-selling smartphones worldwide
Apple marketers are not in vain eating their bread, skillfully maintaining the high image of the company’s products. And there are enough people in the world; who are ready to give a decent amount for the iPhone and its ecosystem; despite the fact that there are many interesting Android flagships on the market. Those who need something more affordable, but at the same time functional, choose Samsung smartphones. The company’s devices from the top 5 managed to attract consumers; by offering a nice design, affordable price, a good set of features; and a well-known nameplate.
At the beginning of the year, a number of analysts allowed themselves alarming statements about the decline in smartphone shipments in 2022. They cited the pandemic, supply chain problems and inflation as the main reasons. And their predictions are coming true.
It was reported that such major smartphone manufacturers as Oppo, Vivo and Xiaomi are forced to reduce the production of mobile devices. They have already notified component suppliers that they are revising production plans; and reducing orders for the second and third quarters of this year by 20%. So, for example, if earlier Xiaomi planned to release 200 million smartphones; now it has adjusted this plan to 160-180 million. Even after fulfilling this plan, the result will be worse than last year; when the company managed to ship 191 million devices.
According to analysts, the decline in smartphone production may be due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, falling demand and overproduction. Now the company’s warehouses have a sufficient number of devices that still need to sell; and there is no point in increasing stocks.
