The year 2019 is past its first half and many equipment has been unveiled. Did the new ads impact the most used Android smartphones in UK?
With that in mind, we decided to compile again the 10 most used Android smartphones in UK. Looking at the list, we see some changes from the last time we looked at this data.
The 10 most used smartphones in UK are:
- Huawei P20 Lite
- Huawei P Smart
- Samsung Galaxy S8
- Huawei P8 Lite 2017
- Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017)
- Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018)
- Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016)
- Huawei Mate 20 Lite
- Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016)
- Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge
Although we have been tweaking the table since the beginning of the year, we note that it continues to be dominated by Huawei and Samsung. It's amazing how these two brands are so popular in UK. Not even Xiaomi's official arrival in Europe and his first official store in Porto were able to change this paradigm.
Samsung Galaxy S8 continues to prove to be a very appealing smartphone
Although it was introduced in 2017, we see that the Galaxy S8 is the only high end to feature on this list. In addition, it has managed to climb three positions since the beginning of 2019, which shows that there are still a lot of people buying Samsung's flagship.
Another of the surprises on this list is the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) which is already the sixth most popular device in UK. Presented in September last year, this model quickly conquered national consumers.
Huawei Mate 20 Lite is another surprise
Unveiled in August 2018, the Huawei Mate 20 Lite is one of the latest models featured in this top-10. Huawei Lite variants have been gaining a lot of fans in UK and this can be verified by the presence of two other models of this genre in this table.
Not surprisingly, we see that the Huawei P20 Lite remains the undisputed leader in the domestic market. This has a considerable distance to the P Smart which is now in the second position of this table.
Unfortunately we have no data on iPhone adoption in UK
The big drawback of this table is that we have no information about buying iPhone's in UK. Apple equipment – although much more expensive – is also generally well-received in our country.
However, AppBrain (data source) does not have statistics covering the iPhone. Therefore, we cannot gauge whether Apple smartphones could play a role in this table.
