Q1 2018: Apple sells 4 of the top 5 smartphones globally

I bought the iPhone X six months ago here's what I think about it now

Well, according to stats from Strategy Analytics, Apple's iPhones have sold the most in the first quarter of 2018. In terms of market share, the iPhone X represents 4.6 percent of all smartphones sold in the given period. Apple has now shifted nearly 50 million iPhone X units worldwide since commercial launch in November, while the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus shipped 12.5 million and 8.3 million units respectively for second and third position.

It wasn't the only victor, either.

It's worth noting that Apple does not release sales figures for individual iPhone models, but the company confirmed in this week's earnings that it sold 52.2 million iPhones, with the iPhone X selling the most units out of all the models throughout the quarter. The iPhone 7 also shipped 5.6 million units. In all, Apple captured over 12% of the market with its four most popular phones last quarter, which is quite an impressive achievement. During the same quarter past year, the company earned $2.10 EPS.

The hat trick, which came on three consecutive at-bats that propelled Betts into the league lead for home runs with 11 in total. Meanwhile, Price left allowing a season-high nine runs, including a season-high seven earned runs, on six hits and two walks.

62% of Apple's overall revenue in fiscal Q2 2018 came from iPhone sales, and little less than half of it - 42.23% precisely - was contributed by Phone X alone. "Given our confidence in Apple's future, we are very happy to announce that our Board has approved a new $100 billion share repurchase authorization and a 16 percent increase in our quarterly dividend". The iPhone X $999 starting price was too much for some consumers.

"We're thrilled to report the biggest quarter in Apple's history, with broad-based growth that included the highest revenue ever from a new iPhone lineup. iPhone X surpassed our expectations and has been our top-selling iPhone every week since it shipped in November", said Apple CEO Tim Cook. Apple's CEO Tim Cook had rubbished these reports and said that Apple's supply chain is very complex and it is hard to base conclusions on a single piece of data.

A lot of uncertainty regarding weak iPhone X demand centered on suppliers such as TSMC and AMS. According to a report that emerged in Korea, the next iPhone X will have a full screen, without any level.

Global smartphone shipments reached 345 million units in Q1 2018. After that, the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus isn't doing particularly bad for itself. Xiaomi marketed the device as "The smartphone for everyone" which seems to have been accurate seeing that they sold over 5.4 million units.

Strategy Analytics said Samsung's Galaxy S9 Plus will become the best-selling Android smartphone globally in the second quarter of 2018. Those were the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus, and the latter of these racked up 17.4-million units shipped.
