With four iPhones in the top 5 best-selling smartphones worldwide, Apple would have beaten the competition hands down in April. This is revealed by a new study by Counterpoint Researcha firm now followed by many investors who have bet on the success of Tim Cook’s company.
Unsurprisingly, it is the “classic” iPhone 13 that would convince the most over the period. This is the base model, which comes with a 6.1-inch screen and an A15 Bionic chip along with 4GB of RAM. The device is 5G compatible and also has a more compact edition; the iPhone 13 mini. However, it is absent from the top 10, which supports rumors that the manufacturer has chosen not to develop a small format for the iPhone 14 expected by September.
Samsung number two
Still for Apple products, the iPhone 13 Pro Max comes in second here with its large 6.7-inch panel. Its little sibling, the base iPhone 13 Pro, is third. Both offer ProMotion technology with a frame rate of one hundred and twenty frames per second as well as 6 GB of RAM. Real nuggets for gaming. Finally, still for Apple, the iPhone 12 is fourth and the third-generation iPhone SE seventh.
With 1.5% market share, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra 5G is the first competitor in the table but only ranks fifth out of ten. This mobile is also very well made with a 6.8-inch display and 8 or 12 GB of RAM depending on the version chosen. Its 5,000 mAh battery easily lasts the day, while the operating system is Android with obviously the Korean’s proprietary overlay.
No room for other builders
Samsung and Apple are the two big winners at the moment, and would thus rank nine of their phones among the ten best-selling in April 2022. Xiaomi comes here to grab some ridiculous market share (1.3% more precisely) with its Redmi Note 11 LTE. This item is much more affordable than iPhones; sometimes four times cheaper.
Its 6.5-inch screen offers a definition of 1,080 by 2,400 pixels and a 50 MPx sensor is installed on the back to take snapshots on the fly. The iPhones are still content with only 12 MPx today, but this should change with the future iPhone 14s.
