The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus remain to be the best-selling smartphones as a newly released report reveals us how Apple’s iOS powered cellphones were in the lead for handset sales in April. In contrast, the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge – – combined – could just follow in at 2nd place.
The news can be found in from Counterpoint, an innovation market research study company, which has actually revealed a positive growth for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge as the smartphones rose to the third and fourth positions in April, simply 20 days after launch. However, exactly what is more favorable is that the S6 sales in this period went beyond sales of the Galaxy S5 in the very same duration in 2013, despite the S6 being introduced in only 20 countries at first as compared with 125 countries for the S5.
By the end of April, it is believed that Samsung has sold about 6 million units, however according to Counterpoint, “this has to do with 60 % of the systems Samsung has shipped of its factories. So 40 % stay as inventory in the distribution channels which is not unusual for a brand-new product in its very first stages.” It is likewise believed that the S6 and S6 Edge are struggling with specific production constraints and it is believed by researchers at Counterpoint that if Samsung manages to iron that out “The Samsung Galaxy S6 series has an opportunity to become the top selling smartphone surpassing Apple’s iPhone 6 series.”
The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus nevertheless, remain to keep a healthy lead, and as per the report: “The Galaxy S6 series is mostly cannibalizing other Android phones, consisting of Samsung’s other flagship designs.”This would explain in part how the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have managed their leading positions in spite of being 8 months into their release. In a similar fashion to how the S6 outstripped S5 sales, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus sales were higher in April 2015 by 51-percent when compared to sales of the iPhone 5s and 5c for the very same duration in 2014.
Following in at fifth and sixth place are the Xiaomi Redmi 2 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 respectively, while the Microsoft Lumia 435 trails in at the tenth location unsurprisingly.
Apple managed to offer 74.5 million iPhones back in the last quarter of 2014 followed by 61.2 million systems in second quarter of 2015, and in February Apple’s famed smartphone beat all Android smartphone sales incorporated in the United States.
