Counterpoint Research published a list of the top 10 best-selling smartphones in 2022, which is convincingly dominated by Apple. More specifically, iPhone took as many as eight places on that list, and the other two are held by Samsung’s cheapest models, the Galaxy A13 and Galaxy 03.
Namely, the iPhone 13 took first place with an estimated five percent of the total sales of mobile phones worldwide and 28 percent of the total sales of the iPhone. Moreover, Counterpoint Research states that this mobile phone was the best seller in the USA, Great Britain, China, Germany, and France between September 2021 and August 2022.
In second place is the iPhone 13 Pro Max with a 2.8 percent share of the total global mobile phone sales, followed by the iPhone 14 Pro Max with 1.7 percent.
“Sales of the iPhone 14 Pro Max were led by early adopters and those who upgraded to a higher version of the iPhone. Major improvements in the iPhone 14 Pro series, such as the Dynamic Island and a faster processor, make it more attractive because the basic model is almost identical to the one from the previous year,” notes Counterpoint Research.
In fourth place with a 1.6 percent share was the Galaxy A13, Samsung’s low-end mobile phone, which is popular among customers primarily due to its price and easy availability. The fifth place was taken by the iPhone 13 Pro, followed by the iPhone 12, iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone SE 2022. The list of the top 10 best-selling mobile phones is concluded by the Galaxy A03.
The members of Generation Z contribute greatly to the overall iPhone sales. As we wrote last month, 34 percent of all iPhone users in the US belong to “zoomers”. A similar trend is noticeable in other parts of the world, including Europe.
