iPhone X’s “Stellar Performance” Not Enough to Stop Android’s Growth – Kantar
Statistics offered by Kantar for the three months ending November 2017 indicate that Apple’s iPhone X was the top-selling smartphone in several key markets, though this didn’t help Cupertino stop Android from growing.
Specifically, iPhone X accounted for no less than 14.4% of the sales in the United Kingdom in November, helping Apple achieve the highest share in more than three years. Additionally, iPhone X also gained the first place in Japan with a share of 18.2%, followed by iPhone 8 at 17.2%.
Furthermore, the iPhone X also sold like hot cakes in urban China where it reached 6.0%, though the model was outsold by iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus in the United States. Apple’s 2017 iPhones were the three best-selling models in the home market in November, with Samsung’s Galaxy S8 only sixth in the charts.
