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.
