New Rivals Arrive In The Top-End Smartphone Segment

New Rivals Arrive In The Top-End Smartphone Segment”

A carrier store survey last month suggested that the iPhone 7 was outselling the iPhone 8, and this idea is supported by new shipment data from market analysts Canalys. The new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus accounted for 11.8 million of these.

After the iPhone 7 and iPhone 6s, the top five best-selling phones were Samsung's Galaxy J2 Prime and the Oppo A57, which both reached 7.8 million units, and Oppo R11 with 7.2 million units.

According to DxOMark, Apple has come up with significant changes with iPhone X with improvements that are "noticeably on Zoom performance, but also does better in terms of Exposure, Color, Texture, Noise and Artifacts" in comparison of the iPhone 8 Plus.

Worldwide shipments were 375.9 million, up 5.9 percent on the third quarter previous year.

Apple's iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were responsible for 5.4 million and 6.3 million units, respectively, according to Canalys, showing that the larger iPhone 8 Plus was the preferred model.

Interestingly, the iPhone 8 Plus appears to be significantly more popular than the smaller model, the first quarter that a Plus model has outsold the standard version. This is not surprising given the iPhone 8 series has been overshadowed by the 10th anniversary special iPhone X.

"Shipments of older devices, such as the iPhone 6s and SE, saw an uptick in Q3", said Ben Stanton. The iPhone 7 also shipped strongly after its price cut in September.

But now display calibration experts at DisplayMate have put the iPhone X's screen under the scrutiny of their extensive tests, and they agree: Not only does the iPhone X top any other smartphone display out there, it's the best smartphone display ever made.

We have included the entire costs breakdown in the image provided so check it out and let us know down in the comments what you think about Apple's pricing strategy. Further, Samsung shipped a whopping 4.4 million units of its flagship smartphone, the Galaxy Note 8.

Stanton notes that Samsung has lost its edge in displays now that Apple, Google, Huawei and others have new phones with 18:9 displays and thin bezels. "As the battleground at the high end moves toward AI and AR, Samsung is behind, and needs to catch up with competitors such as Huawei and Apple".
