Android manufacturers should be embarassed for letting Apple get away with this year after year. The iPhone X hasnt sold as much as was projected, yet in Q4 2017, it made 5 times more profit than the combined profit of over 600 Android manufacturers.

That is 35% of total mobile phone industry profits for that quarter. It is scandalous, to be honest. One device. A single device.

More Highlights From Q4 2017

  • Apple remained the most profitable brand, capturing 86% of the total handset market profits
  • Further splitting profits by model, the top 10 models captured 90% of the total handset profits.
  • Apple and Samsung flagship models, lead in terms of profits as compared to other OEMs.
  • Appleā€™s older generation iPhones, iPhone 7 and iPhone 6 still generate more profit than some of the more recent Android flagships from key Chinese OEMs.

  1. Apple proves that, though we can be expensive, yet we’ll sell the most.. Are these andriod OEM’s sleeping?

  2. Actually, Apple isn’t selling the most. Around 80% of Android smartphones sold run Android OS.

    Apple just makes more money from each iPhone sold. That’s why iPhones are that expensive.
