Top 10 bad smartphones sold in 2022
In the list of the 10 best-selling smartphones of 2022 we have up to 8 iPhone models. Only two low-end Samsung terminals manage to enter the list of the 10 best-selling smartphones in the worldwhich is configured as follows:
- iPhone 13
- iPhone 13 Pro Max
- iPhone 14 Pro Max
- Samsung Galaxy A13
- iPhone 13 Pro
- iPhone 12
- iPhone 14
- iPhone 14 Pro
- iPhone SE 3
- Samsung Galaxy A03
We have many curiosities on the list. Three iPhone 14 models made the year’s bestseller list despite only being sold for 3 1/2 months. Also, for the first time in history, the best-selling model of a new range of iPhone is the Pro Max modelthe most expensive of all.
For the first time, a Pro Max variant of an iPhone series powered more volume than the Pro and base models. The iPhone 14 Pro Max captured third place on the 2022 list. It was the best-selling smartphone model in September, October, and November 2022.
This trend seems to have softened, the iPhone 14 Pro Max has been number 1 in sales for 3 months, but already in December 2022 the iPhone 14 overtook it. So it is likely that this will happen to the iPhone 11, iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 as best-selling smartphones this 2023.
It is also interesting how the iPhone 12 kept up the fight, it was the best-selling smartphone of 2021 and throughout 2022 it continued to sell really well. Although the data does show that at the end of the year its sales fell drastically.
