Below, we see how use of the popular iPhone (6, 7, 8 and X) and Samsung Galaxy (S6, S7, S8, S9) has changed over the course of 2018.

A slight decline in iPhone 6 and iPhone 7 usage was more than absorbed by healthy gains for the 8 and X.

A similar tale on Samsung's side, with losses in share for the older models - S6 and S7.

The S8 and S9 both gained a little over the year, the latter ending 2% up on its starting share.
