The world of Android is growing day by day – especially in North America, where only a few manufacturers are left to fight Apple. While last year’s smartphone sales represented a rebound compared to a disappointing 2020, the first quarter of 2022 appears to have started the wrong way, with bad news emerging for nearly every smartphone manufacturer – except for one.
Samsung came out of this latest battle largely unscathed, on top of smartphone sales in general. Despite worldwide smartphone shipments down 11% year-over-year overall, Samsung led the quarter in shipments with 24% of the market, up from 18% in the last quarter and 22% in the first quarter of 2021.

As usual, Apple ranked second with 18% market share, up from 15% last year. The iPhone 13 series proved to be a huge success for the company, even in a generation that focused on improvements over redesigns. Xiaomi came in third place, with OnePlus, Oppo and Vivo close to the top five. It’s a similar portfolio of brands to what we’ve seen throughout 2021, showing that market forces are consistent in the post-LG world. All other manufacturers – including Huawei, Google and Motorola – accounted for 27% of shipments.
