iPhone 8 Is Beating Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus in The Total Market Share

Recently, we found out that iPhone 8 was the one who was the first in the sales chart, even above the Galaxy S9 Plus, which is now on the second place – it did not help Samsung when it came to profits. The surprise came when we found out that it also did better than iPhone X – it reached a 2.4% market share. This boost in sales was all thanks to the smart advertising from Europe (have you seen the “How to shoot on iPhone” ads?) which made the sales go up from the very beginning of the World Cup last month. Truth be told, all of these three devices are in top 5 if we are to look at the report from May. In the 3rd place we find iPhone X, that comes with 2.3% of the market share and in the 5th place, we find iPhone 8 Plus, that comes with 2.1%.

Let’s take a look at the reports

We’ve seen that Samsung’s devices Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 had some disappointing sales, even if they both have strong numbers. The Galaxy S9 Plus is in the second place, and it’s definitely tied with the iPhone 8, with a 2.4% market share. There is, however, a problem – S9 smartphones are new, so a certain question was raised, that asked why isn’t this device doing any better. It’s true that Samsung was a good guy by warning the investors that the sales of their lead smartphone were slow, after the Q1 earnings.

So we know for sure that this is the truth. Let’s also not forget that we’re waiting for Samsung Galaxy Note 9 this year, the thing that should spice up a bit the Samsung lineup, but this will happen exactly when a new line of iPhones will make its appearance in the market.

There is one thing that’s important to remember, and that is how the Chinese makers, such as Huawei, Xiaomi, and Oppo have even more market share than before, and we think this is one of the main reasons why Galaxy S9’s sales are slow. It’s worth mentioning that the Xiaomi Redmi 5A found its place exactly behind the iPhone X. According to the reports from May, the Xiaomi device has 2.2% of the market share.

iPhone 8 and the Galaxy S9 found their biggest sales in the West, but we cannot ignore the fact that Chinese companies have the biggest impact in the world so far.
