The mobile phone market in the US is largely polarised between two top brands and a handful of much smaller players. The top two control about 80% of the market in terms of sales. And it is from one of these two that the most popular cell phone in America in 2021 springs from.
As far as sales go, iPhone 12 Pro Max was the most popular cell phone in the US for most of the year 2021. Research company, Statista, reported that as of April 2021, Americans preferred the top iPhone model above all other phones on sale in the country.
It accounted for 13% of cell phone sales in the country, a significant figure, considering that the USA is awash with scores of mobile phone models that include prominent names like Apple, Samsung, Motorola, Google, Nokia, LG, OnePlus, TCL, CAT, and BLU, among others.
Even more impressive is the fact that Statista says that the top iPhone models all put together make up a whopping 36% of sales in the country.
Counterpoint puts Apples share of the US market in Q1 2021 at 55%, and Samsung’s at 28%. Samsung is the 2nd largest smartphone brand in the country. Together, Apple and Samsung own the vast majority of the US cell phone market.
