Apple iPhone 7 Crowned As World's Best-Selling Smartphone In Q1

Top five highest-selling smartphones worldwide in Q1 2017 1. iPhone 7 (21.5 million) 2. iPhone 7 Plus (17.4 million) 3. Those expectations, combined with a strong showing from Samsung's Galaxy S8, could temper sales enough to knock the iPhone 7 from the top spot next quarter - but once the iPhone 8 hits the market, Apple might take an even more massive lead if (or more likely, when) it reenters the top spot. Apple is also planning to manufacture iPhones in India in the near future to deflect some of the high import taxes that make iPhones inaccessible to many Indian buyers.

Strategy Analytics' data showed that the Apple iPhone 7 was the bestselling phone of 2017 in the first quarter, though there was a slight year-over-year drop in sales. During Apple's fiscal Q2 earnings call, CEO Tim Cook also acknowledged that the company had a hard time in keeping up with demand for the Plus version, notes CNBC. China's rising brand, Oppo R9s was in third place with almost nine-million sold, followed by Samsung's Galaxy J3 with a bit over six-million.

Headquartered in the city of Dongguan in Guangdong province, "Oppo is largely unknown in the Western world, but its brand is wildly popular in China and growing rapidly across India", Mawston said.

Samsung recently made the Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones available in India and has been on its toes to quickly react to issues faced by consumers. Two affordable Samsung handsets are completing the top 5: the Galaxy J3 2016 (6.1 million units shipped) and Galaxy J5 2016 (5 million units).




The iPhone 7 ruled worldwide smartphone sales.

Apple was able to increase its revenue in all the markets it operates in except for China.

The report announcement notes that this launch trend history is helpful to e-commerce and advertising websites, who rely on mobile optimization to display their products and services accurately and within seconds to customers across all devices.

What makes this assumption even more real is that during the earnings conference call, the US firm noted that both Macs and Services registered "strong double-digit revenue growth" in China.
