According to PC Magazine's latest in-depth nationwide research, Verizon trumps T-Mobile for the title of America's fastest mobile network.
iPhones completely dominated the US market between March and January 2018, with the 64GB iPhone 8 declared the nation's most popular handset, followed by the 64 gig iPhone X.
Both Samsung and Apple contributed to Europe's shrinking Q1 2018 smartphone shipment numbers, but the iPhone X was easily the continent's most popular model, according to Canalys.
Many analysts rushed to deem the iPhone X a flop, but this flop managed to outsell all other smartphones in the world between January and March 2018.
The global tablet market is not exactly thriving, but detachable tablets are doing well, and they will continue to grow, according to the IDC's research and projections.
According to Strategy Analytics, Xiaomi more than doubled its share of the global smartphone market between Q1 2017 and Q1 2018, while Huawei achieved a new quarterly record.
According to the latest Kantar Worldpanel ComTech report, Xiaomi and Huawei's smartphone sales are rapidly growing in Europe's top five markets, while Apple is doing solid business in China.
Xiaomi might be the champion of overall smartphone shipments in India, but Samsung still has the regional premium crown. Then again, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ have been eclipsed by the OnePlus 5T during Q1 2018.
Just as expected, worldwide tablet shipments are down again after a surprisingly solid holiday quarter, looking at yet another big drop in Q2 2018.
It may be a while before global smartphone sales start surging again, but in the meantime, vendors can be very happy about recent average price trends.
More and more countries around the world are enjoying "truly exceptional" 4G LTE availability scores, according to OpenSignal, but speeds are no longer surging at the usual pace.
Finnish startup HMD Global reportedly shipped as many as 4.4 million Nokia smartphones in Q4 2017, and close to 60 million feature phones in total last year, looking at even higher numbers for 2018.
Apple Watch shipment numbers were up impressively both in calendar Q4 2017 and for the full year, including robust Series 3 LTE sales.
According to both Strategy Analytics and IDC, Apple dominated global Q4 2017 smartphone shipments, while Samsung finished the year in first place.
Apple's iPhone X ruled the October - December 2018 charts in Urban China, according to the latest Kantar Worldpanel ComTech data, also selling very well in Europe, Japan, Australia and the US.
Samsung may have been India's top overall 2017 smartphone vendor, but Xiaomi won the final quarter, also leading the full-year model popularity chart.
Global smartphone sales only achieved minor growth during Q4 2017, according to GfK market research, but average smartphone prices surged at a remarkable pace.
India's extremely important smartphone market was dominated by Xiaomi rather than Samsung during the final quarter of last year, while Reliance Jio won the local feature phone trophy.
According to Canalys market research, Apple's iPhone X was the world's top-shipping smartphone during the October - December 2017 quarter, selling particularly well in China.
The iPhone X wasn't Apple's best-sold mobile device between October and December 2017 in the US, according to the latest CIRP report.
T-Mobile has both the fastest and most reliable US wireless network, according to OpenSignal's latest measurements, with Verizon a distant number two in speed.
Apple is number one in CIRP's Q4 2017 US smartphone activation rankings, surging from a 34 percent share during the final three months of 2016 to an impressive 39 percent.
Ahead of a somewhat surprising December demand slowdown, Apple's iPhone X reportedly crushed the competition in the month of November, at least across three major global markets.
