We know the list of the 10 most popular smartphones of 2019. It was Apple s year

For the 10 most popular smartphones in 2019, there are as many as 5 iPhone models. The analytical company reveals data that we will not see at Apple.

The analytical company Omdia has presented a report revealing information that you will not hear from Apple. Apple is required to publish financial results, but creative accounting does everything it can to not publicly disclose the number of iPhones sold. We know the profits, but we know nothing about the number of units sold or the proportions between individual models.

This is uncomfortable data for Apple, because they reveal that de facto fewer iPhones are sold than a few years ago. Yes, profits are rising, but this is due to the fact that the average price of the iPhone has increased significantly over the years.

That is why the numerical reports are so interesting. Omdia has just published such a report.

Here are the 10 most popular smartphones 2019.

iPhone XR reviews

In 2019, the list of the most popular smartphones in the world was as follows:

  1. iPhone XR - 46.3 million units,
  2. iPhone 11 - 37.3 million units,
  3. Samsung Galaxy A10 - 30.3 million units,
  4. Samsung Galaxy A50 - 24.2 million units,
  5. Samsung Galaxy A20 - 19.2 million units,
  6. iPhone 11 Pro Max - 17.6 million units,
  7. iPhone 8 - 17.4 million units,
  8. Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 - 16.4 million pieces,
  9. iPhone 11 Pro - 15.5 million units,
  10. Samsung Galaxy J2 Core - 15.2 million pieces.

For comparison, in 2018 this list was as follows.

iPhone 8 Plus - first impressions, test, review / iOS 11.0.2

  1. iPhone 8 - 31.5 million units,
  2. iPhone X - 27.5 million units,
  3. iPhone 8 Plus - 25.6 million units,
  4. Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime Plus - 25.2 million units,
  5. iPhone XR - 23.1 million units,
  6. iPhone XS Max - 21.3 million units,
  7. Samsung Galaxy S9 - 19.3 million units,
  8. Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus - 16.1 million units,
  9. Huawei P20 Lite - 16 million pieces,
  10. iPhone XS - 15.5 million units.

What do these data tell us? First of all, customers like new smartphones, but cheaper devices sell best. Apple is dominated by XR and 11 models, and Samsung's big hit was the new Galaxy A series, led by the cheapest A10.

Secondly, only two companies count: Apple and Samsung. In 2018, Huawei had its representative in the top 10, but in 2019 the Chinese company dropped out of the list, most likely as a result of a ban imposed by the Trump administration. Xiaomi noticed and used this opportunity.

Third, Apple's new strategy is extremely effective.

The iPhone XR was the king of the smartphone segment in 2019. This is no surprise.

Apple iPhone XR

Already in January Mateusz Nowak clearly proved that Apple was spraying the competition . The following data then appeared:

"IPhone 11 was the best-selling iPhone in the US and Europe every week of sales since the start of sales. What's more, the iPhone 11 sold over two times better than the iPhone XR. Thus, the iPhone 11 was the best-selling smartphone in the fourth quarter. "

Let's return to the Omdia report. We read in it that over the course of 2019, Apple sold 46.3 million pieces of the iPhone XR worldwide. In the last quarter of 2018 (i.e. since its release), 23.1 million units of this smartphone were sold. By 2020, i.e. over 15 months, it found almost 70 million buyers. So Apple sold an average of 153 thousand. XR iPhones daily, everyday.

You can already see how gigantic success the iPhone 11 will be.

Data for 2019 show that Apple has sold 37.3 million pieces of iPhones 11. However, we should remember that the smartphone debuted in the fall, so it was only a quarter on sale. During this time he did 80 percent. the annual sales result of the iPhone XR.

Someone will say: the task was easy, because the result was influenced by the prime minister, after which sales are the largest, as well as the holiday season. A summary of data from 2018 shows, however, that the iPhone 11 is unique.

The iPhone XR in the first quarter after the launch made a result of 23.1 million units sold. A year later, in the same period, the iPhone 11 sold 37.3 million units. So we have an increase of over half.

It impresses and shows what power Apple is. It is also clear that consumers are not disturbed by thick frames, LCD screens with low pixel density or one lens less. If you can have a cheaper iPhone that will still be a full-fledged iPhone, customers choose this solution. Apple knew what it was doing when it lowered the price of the iPhone 11 relative to the XR.

I wonder only how the iPhone 9 will find itself in these realities, which promises to be extremely boring, outdated, but at the same time very affordable device.
