Best-selling smartphone models in Spain 2017

The Huawei Honor P8 Lite topped the list of best-selling smartphones in Spain in 2017. The Chinese smartphone and wireless technology company was blacklisted in the United States upon Trump administration’s decision to ban American companies from working with Huawei and any of its products. The popularity of this Chinese manufacturer in the U.S. is reportedly much lower than in other European countries, according to the latest surveys. Huawei’s in contrast one of the most popular smartphone manufacturers in Spain, with nearly 20 percent of Spanish users owning a Huawei smartphone as their day-to-day mobile device in 2019. The South Korean manufacturer Samsung ranked second on the list with its models Galaxy S8 and Galaxy J7.

Android vs. iOS in Spain

The predominance of Android smartphones over iOS in Spain is indisputable – the Google-developed operating system held approximately 90 percent of the total market share during the period in consideration. Apple’s iOS peaked in January 2017 with 13 percent of the total share, although the mobile system popularity dwindled in the subsequent months and took up approximately 9 percent of the market by the beginning of 2019.

The rise of mobile communications

Mobile telephony has come a long way in a relatively short period of time. The number of cellphones is projected to reach 13.09 billion devices worldwide in 2019, and it is only expected to grow more over the next years. The global smartphone penetration is forecast to hit over 50 percent, meaning that more than half of the world’s population owns or has owned this type of mobile device in 2019.
