Galaxy A51, Galaxy S20+ were among best-selling Android phones of Q1 2020
It was being reported that sales figures of the Galaxy S20 series have been disappointing so far and that it sold less than Samsung’s previous-generation flagships. However, a new report paints a different picture. According to the latest market analysis report from Strategy Analytics, the Galaxy S20+ was the third best-selling Android smartphone of Q1 2020.
The report states that over 6 million units of Galaxy A51 were sold during the first quarter of this year, making it the world’s best-selling Android smartphone with a market share of 2.3 percent. The Galaxy S20+ was at the third position with a market share of 1.7 percent (around 4.4 million units). It is the only premium smartphone in the list of top six best-selling Android phones.
The Galaxy A10s (1.6 percent) and the Galaxy A20s (1.4 percent) captured the fourth and sixth positions, respectively. The Xiaomi Redmi 8 was the second best-selling Android phone, while the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 was at the fifth position. You can read our reviews of the Galaxy A51 and the Galaxy S20+ here.
The Galaxy S20 series has been plagued with several issues, including the cameras and the Exynos 990’s relatively weaker performance. In this situation, watching the Galaxy S20+ appear in the list of best-selling Android phones of the quarter could be a ray of sunshine for Samsung.
Juha Winter, Associate Director at Strategy Analytics, said, “As mobile operators have reduced subsidies in recent years, and many countries are now tumbling into post-virus recession, smartphone consumers globally are becoming increasingly price-sensitive and they are seeking out new Android models that deliver the biggest bang for their buck.”
