Apple mania

We therefore find on the first step of the podium the iPhone 14 Pro Max (with 26.5 million sales in August 2023). “Global Smartphone Market Reports Negative Growth as Mid- and Low-End Market Contracts Due to Economic Recession and Expanding Used Smartphone Market”, Omdia, the research firm that published the report, told Forbes. “In contrast, the premium smartphone market is steadily growing as replacement demand for Apple’s premium models remains strong.

“The iPhone is no longer just a premium product, it is a true icon”

In this ranking, the 14 Pro Max is followed by the iPhone 14 Pro (21 million sales) and the iPhone 14 (16.5 million sales). The iPhone 13 (15.5 million sales) is in fourth position. Samsung still had a very good year, completing the ranking with five of its smartphones. In fifth position, we find the Samsung Galaxy A14 (12.4 million sales), followed by the Galaxy S23 Ultra (9.6 million sales), the Galaxy A14 5G (9 million sales), the Galaxy A54 5G (8 .8 million sales) and the Galaxy A34 5G (7.1 million sales). The last place in this top 10 is occupied by the Apple iPhone 11 (6.9 million sales).

The best-selling phone of all time

Apple capitulates: users in the EU will no longer be forced to go through the App Store to install applications

Even if these figures are dizzying, they remain very modest compared to the best-selling phone of all time in the world. We have to go back twenty years, with the European company Nokia. And no, it is not the very popular Nokia 3310 which was the best sold, but the Nokia 1100. This phone, launched on the market in 2003, sold nearly 250 million copies until 2009, mainly in the emerging markets of the time, namely Russia, India and China. Its successor, the Nokia 1110, was also a huge success, with 247 million copies sold. The only smartphone that competed with these old phones was Apple’s iPhone 6 and 6 plus, which sold 222 million copies.
