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.
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.
Rookie smartphone manufacturer HMD Global reportedly managed to sell a boatload of intelligent Nokia devices last year, coming very close to the global top ten OEMs.
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.
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.
With the iPhone X released too late to count, the iPhone 7 took the Q3 2017 best-selling smartphone crown, followed by the 6s and Samsung Galaxy J2 Prime.
