It’s no surprise to see the Galaxy A12 appear on the list, as the device retails for less than $200 and we thought it offered great battery life, long-lasting software support, and a sleek design. But we regret the lack of horsepower, disappointing secondary cameras, and slow charging. But Samsung still offers a phone that gets the basics right
Xiaomi was the only other Android maker in the top ten for 2021, with the Redmi 9A in seventh place and the Redmi 9 taking the last place. The tracker claimed that the two phones accounted for 22% of Xiaomi’s sales last year, with China, India and Asia Pacific being the main markets.
In any case, both Samsung and Xiaomi will stop working if they hope to rise in the ranks and overtake Apple. Cupertino just launched $430 iPhone SE 2022It is expected to generate a lot of sales this year given its price point. But both Samsung and Xiaomi were seriously hampered by component shortages last year, so addressing that hurdle could be key to improving sales in 2022.
