IHS Markit has announced the list of best-selling smartphones for 2016 and Apple is the clear winner.
According to the report, the iPhone 6s is the best-selling smartphone last year with around 60 million units sold. Apple dominated the top of this list and the second place belongs to iPhone 7, followed by iPhone 7 Plus. Fourth place on the best-selling smartphone list belongs to yet another iPhone - 6S Plus.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and S7 ranked fifth and ninth. Sales of these two devices have outperformed their immediate predecessors, S6 and S6 Edge: the combined shipments of S7 and S7 Edge in 2016 were 10 million higher than S6 and S6 Edge over the same period.
Sixth place belongs to another Samsung device - Galaxy J3, while the Galaxy J7 is ranked tenth. The only non-iPhone or Samsung phone on this list is Oppo A53 which took the seventh place.
This list shows the domination of Apple and Samsung. Interestingly, Huawei, the third-largest smartphone maker after Apple and Samsung, didn't have any models in the top ten most-shipped smartphones in 2016.
