2017's Most Popular Smartphones

iPhones lead the market

Different versions of the iPhone are the most popular devices for web browsing in nearly every corner of the planet. iPhone 5 (including the S and C versions) is currently the most popular model out of the three latest Apple phones.

iPhone 6, the least popular model to date, may soon overtake its older siblings given Apple's latest sales figures. The company said that it sold an incredible 74.5 million iPhones in Q1 2015.



Samsung Galaxy S family

Different versions of the Samsung Galaxy S aren’t as visible as iPhones in our web browsing statistics, but their share is nevertheless significant. All three versions are popular, although there are huge differences between the 10 countries we analyzed.
