The latest information indicates that Apple remains the most popular smartphone manufacturer in the US. We also know that the iPhone X sold out the first weekend much better than the "eight" and it's just the beginning of his domination.
Analysts from Strategy Analytics report that in the third quarter of 2017, a total of 39.5 million smartphones were sold in the United States. This means that the market has slowed slightly. The most popular brand is the Apple logo, as Apple captured 30.4% of the smartphone market, selling 12 million iPhones. This is 2.1% less than in the corresponding period of the previous year. Interestingly, it is the only player who has been listed and recorded a decline. In second place was Samsung, while on the third LG. Both companies have improved significantly over this period and their statistics have gone up. Also worth noting is the ZTE and Motorola, which sold more smartphones in the third quarter of this year than in the corresponding period of the previous year.Probably the weakest quarter for Apple in the US is the launch of new iPhone and the subsequent sale of X. The latter, had a higher adoption rate than the iPhone 8. After the first weekend, it took a 1% market share. Although it seems to be little … it's about the best result since the introduction of the iPhone 5S, which was achieved in just three days . He only managed iPhone 6, earning a 2% stake at the same time. This is at least according to local company data. iPhone 8 gained 0.3% and iPhone 8 Plus gained 0.4%. This data does not cover the United States only. From the above, it's clear that the fourth quarter is likely to continue to dominate Apple . And although it is only about the United States, this data clearly shows the continued popularity of smartphones with a biting apple logo. Even AT & T CEO John Donovan said the iPhone X is "the most anticipated" version and reflects the high demand for this model. Source: MacRumors , Strategy Analytcs , CNBC
