  • These models were the ten most popular smartphones in the world last quarter

    These models were the ten most popular smartphones in the world last quarter
    In this era of the $1,000 flagship phone, the latest data from Counterpoint Research shows how important a lower price point can be. The most popular handset in the world during the third quarter (July through September) was the Apple iPhone XR. In fact, the device has topped this list since it was first released during the fourth quarter of 2018. While the model was replaced in September by the iPhone 11, it also was the beneficiary of a price cut in September that took the cost of the handset down to as low as $599.

    The iPhone XR captured 3% of the global market during the third quarter followed by the Samsung Galaxy A10 and its 2.6% slice of the pie. Samsung hit a grand slam with its mid-range Galaxy A series which offers lower-priced handsets with good cameras and larger capacity batteries. The Galaxy A50, with a triple camera setup, a large 4000mAh battery and 128GB of storage was third with 1.9% of the global smartphone market. Originally priced at $350, the handset can be found during the holiday season priced well under $300.

    Mid-range phones are dominating the top ten list

    In a tie for fourth place, the Apple iPhone 11 and the Oppo A9 each took 1.6% of the global smartphone market during Q3. The iPhone 11 brings an ultra-wide camera, good battery life, a 6.1-inch Liquid Retina display and the powerful A13 Bionic chipset for a price range that starts at $699 for the 64GB variant. That is $50 less than the original price of the 64GB iPhone XR. The Oppo A5s (1.5%), Samsung Galaxy A20 (1.4%), Oppo A5 (1.3%) and the Xioami Redmi 7A (1.2%) finished in 6th through 9th place.

    In tenth place during the three months was the camera-centric Huawei P30 with 1.1% of the global market. The P30 series is the last flagship line from the manufacturer licensed to use the Google Play services version of Android. Because it has been banned from accessing its U.S. supply chain, Huawei installed an open-source version of Android on the Mate 30 line. This means that the company's most technologically advanced phones of the year cannot run Google's core Android apps such as the Play Store, Maps, Gmail, Search and others. In China, it doesn't matter because most Google apps are banned anyway. But in the global market, the lack of Google apps can have a major impact on sales.

    Huawei did have a domestic third quarter for the ages. Fueled by a rise in patriotism among Chinese consumers who rallied behind the idea that the company was being bullied by the U.S., Huawei's phone shipments in China soared an incredible 66% in the period. Inside the country, the firm's market share was 42.4% from July through September. That means out of every 1000 smartphones shipped inside China during the period, 424 of them were made by Huawei.

    The top ten models made up 17% of all global smartphone sales during the three month period, up from 15% during the same period last year. But with consumers more sensitized to price than ever before, the wholesale revenue of the top ten models declined 30% year-over-year. Part of the reason for the rise in mid-range models is that many of them contain features (such as triple-camera setups and in-display fingerprint scanners) that once belonged only to higher-priced premium units as recently as last year.

    Manufacturers saw their profits decline 11% in the third quarter on an annual basis, according to the report. And while Counterpoint expects mid-range models to continue to dominate the global smartphone market, it also expects to see some 5G models appear on the list in the near future. And who knows? Perhaps there will be a time in the future when a foldable model makes the list. Right now, this is still quite a niche product with pricing too high and manufacturers' output too low. The release of the Motorola razr next year is bound to make the public more aware of the segment. But if we've learned anything from Counterpoint's Q3 data, it is that value pricing is important.

    The S10 is the better phone though. The P30 only sold more because it's cheap and because it sells more in China.

    The launch price of the P30 was $700. That’s not “cheap” by any stretch of the imagination. The P30 was also launched GLOBALLY. You keep on insinuating that it sold more due to selling so well in China, but the fact is that it sold well globally. The P30 Series GLOBAL sales reached 10 million in 85 days. #FactChecked As for better, well, both the Huawei P30 and the Galaxy S10 are much better buys than any Pixel phone that’s out today.

    Never said P30 was mid-range. The whole list wasn't made totally of mid-range phones. I wouldn't consider iPhone 11 to be mid-range. As for the insinuation, the P30 never was affected by the ban. When I talked about the ban, it was in reference to the Mate 30. Thanks for the comment. Happy Holidays! Alan

    I'm only "insinuating" it because it's documented facts. The reason the P30 has sold more is because the Chinese are more favorable to their brands than outside brands. Plain and simple. That is just the launch price. We all know that Android phones don't hold their value at launch price. Just look at the Pureview for instance and how much value it loss for the disastrous launch it had. Better is subjective and you just look childish trying to use that line to take a shot at Pixel phones.

    Post proof that the P30 series sold more units in China than globally. Don’t worry, I’ll wait. Using your logic, Apple sells the most phones in the U.S. and that’s only because Americans are more favorable to American brands. Same thing for Koreans and and the Samsung and LG brand, Europeans and the Nokia brand, etc. Plain and simple. Everyone knows that Android smartphones depreciate quickly. Just look at the older Pixels and the Essential Phone. However, the P30 series has sold just as many, if not more, smartphones at launch price when compared to the depreciated prices. Better is subjective and you look like a bigger child taking shots at Huawei and it’s decided devices on almost every Huawei article posted.

    I said that because a lot of samsung fanboys said that huawei sells well only in midrange while their flagships doesn't sell as many phones as samsung or apple. Samsung has a cheap flagship (s10e) but it still p30 sold more. Yeah huawei sells in china the bighest smartphone market but samsung has an advantage they are selling in usa south korea and japan where chinese phones are doesn't sell there because of political issues. And all these countries are richer than china. So they the potential to sell more flagships. Sorry for my bad english.

    Exactly. People keep using the crutch that “Huawei only sells so much because of China”, while every other OEM has the benefit of selling in the top 3 smartphone markets: China, India, and the U.S. Huawei only has the benefit of selling in two out of 3 of those markets, but no one wants to mention that because it shoots their crutch excuse down.

    These midrange phones, are really just lower priced flagships. they have great cameras, specs, big batteries, and large screens. Shows that there really is something for everyone. Not a bad game plan at all.

    Absolutely correct. Look at the specs on the Galaxy A50 and up. Samsung saw this coming as did some of the Chinese manufacturers. Thanks for your comments and have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Alan

    I literally just ordered a Huawei P30 on eBay for a steal of price for what it brings to the table. I couldn’t resist at the price I saw it for. From what I’ve read and seen, it’s a great smartphone. It arrives this Saturday, and I can’t wait to use it. With the exception of Apple, this list is dominated by Asian smartphone OEM’s. They’ve truly been putting out the most competitive, compelling and feature rich products in recent memory.

    Well it's obvious. All of the big brands except apple are asian.

    And it’s obvious that all of those big Asian brands have been putting out the best smartphones on the market today.

    I understood what you meant without being assertively combative. Samsung and LG are Korean, Sony is Japanese, and Huawei of course is Chinese with their population being why Huawei is even in discussions outside of them being in talks because of their ties to the Chinese regime.

    Except the only one being combative is you as you passively take shots at me. It’s clear what he meant. It’s also clear what I meant. Huawei doesn’t just sell well in China, they sell well in Europe, the UAE, and other places, unlike Google, that has little to no international sales with its Pixels due to its poor distribution.

    Do you really want to joke about something that is happening on a daily basis? Just look at some of the recent string of Chinese malware and backdoor attempts via hacking.

    Posts: 22714; Member since: May 28, 2014

    Post proof about Huawei smartphones possessing backdoors for the Chinese government like it proven that Google supplies backdoors on behalf of the U.S. government, as opposed to making insinuations based on your xenophobia.

    Seem really enthusiastic there. It's just a phone that doesn't really bring much to the table that other more capable OEMs have done.

    52. meanestgenius

    Posts: 22714; Member since: May 28, 2014

    Why I am enthusiastic about that I purchase with my money is none of your business. Huawei smartphones bring far more to the table than the Pixels you love so much do, and is a far more capable OEM than almost any other OEM out there.

    I've bought one about a month ago. Quite satisfied with it's size, camera, battery life and software. The only issue I have with it is fingerprint not always working (fails to recognize and it's a bit slow too) and face unlock blinding at night (it raises the screen brightness to max, although lowest possible is set).

    Wait what? You have 5 phones? What do you do with all these phones other than flexing?

    So iPhones are outselling the high end and mid range devices now? Wonder what would happen if Apple released a low end device?
