Canalys has recently published an analysis on the numbers of smartphones sold in Europe, highlighting the five best-selling phones. These figures include a mobile that has sold exceptionally well. And the truth is that we are not surprised by the reason for its success.
The Galaxy A50 was the best selling mobile in Europe
In the last report of Canalys they have studied how the market was in Europe during the second quarter of 2019. In these results we can see the top 5 mobile manufacturers, Samsung occupies the first place, Huawei the second and Apple, Xiaomi and Nokia the third, fourth and fifth place respectively.
If Huawei has been harmed, in part by the controversy caused by Trump, Samsung has benefited from a 20% growth over last year. Xiaomi's growth was also brutal, at 48%.
In addition to brands, Canalys has also focused on specific models, marking the Galaxy A50 as a triumph of the South Korean manufacturer. This mobile has managed to sell a total of 3.2 million units in Europe last quarter. An eyesore. This would have been the top 5 mobile sales:
- Samsung Galaxy A50: 3.2 million units sold.
- Samsung Galaxy A40: 2.2 million units sold.
- Redmi Note 7: 2 million units sold.
- Samsung Galaxy A20e: 1.9 million units sold.
- iPhone Xr: 1.8 million units sold.
With a total of 18.3 million sales, Top 5 Galaxy A accounts for 39% of Samsung's sales. A completely deserved success for the new Galaxy A.
Is it worth the best selling mobile in Europe?
On multiple occasions we usually call for caution, and that is to say that a mobile phone is the one that has sold the most does not mean that it is necessarily the best. That achievement can be a combined cause between a good product and a great marketing strategy. Sometimes we have even seen mobiles on the top that are not recommended at all.
But the Samsung Galaxy A50 is definitely recommended. Samsung has taken into account the priorities of users who can not spend too much money on their best phones and have chosen to bring these technologies at an affordable price.
Sometimes success is just a matter of marketing. In this case, it is a deserved victory, the Galaxy A50 is fantastic.
The Galaxy A50 is a mobile that has a fingerprint reader on the screen, a triple camera in which we have the increasingly relevant wide-angle sensor. Lots of memory (also expandable by microSD), lots of battery, great performance and does not give up features like the NFC or the headphone jack. And all this in a mobile that although it is large, feels light.
