The world's best selling Android in Q1 was the Oppo R9s


"Global smartphone shipments reached a robust 353.3 million units in Q1 2017".

On the second place by sales was the iPhone 7 Plus a share of 4.9% (17.4 million) and closed the three of leaders of the Oppo R9s with 2.5% of the market.

Apple might have lost some significant market share in India but in global terms, the company continues to rule the smartphone market. In case you're wondering, the Oppo R9s is not officially available in the USA, but it's quite popular in markets like China (Oppo's home country) and India. Its handsets thus held the first and second positions with Oppo's R9s coming in at third while Samsung's mid-range Galaxy J3 and Galaxy J5 (2016) handsets took fourth and fifth place, respectively.

A report from analytical firm Strategy Analytics claims that Oppo shipped more of its Oppo R9s smartphones than Samsung was able to ship any of its own smartphone models in the first quarter of 2017.

Strategy Analytics said the devices sell well in Asia and Europe.


Moving on, "various versions of iPhone fill up the top 5 premium category smartphones in the states of Delhi, Gujarat, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Punjab, indicating that iPhone is not a metro affair only in India", says CyberMedia.

Kantar Worldpanel reports today that "Chinese vendors have increased their smartphone sales share in India from 27% in Q1 2016 to 50% in Q1 2017". Since Samsung was recovering from the Galaxy Note7 debacle during the period, so it's natural it didn't make the top two.

There has been growth in numbers from Oppo and Vivo brands as well.

New data from Strategy Analytics shows that Apple's iPhone 7 was the top-selling smartphone during the first quarter of 2017 despite a slight year-over-year drop in sales. That may be another reason Apple, which initially sold its base iPhone 7 model for about $960 in China, is getting left behind in the market- especially since mid-tier models have been adding solid features to their phones that rival or even exceed those available on iPhones.
