Apple, Samsung and Amazon lead list of best-selling technology products of 2017

Smartphones maintain the reign as the best technological and best-selling product in 2017. Once again the iPhone was the best-selling technological product of 2017. Apple would have sold 223 million iPhone phones in 2017, compared to the 211 million that sold the previous year. Samsung and Amazon followed him a bit further on the USA Today list.

Apple's iPhone was the best-selling technology product in 2017 above any other
In fact, Apple sold more iPhone units than the next four items on the list as a whole. The ranking also includes the Amazon Echo Dot speakers with 24 million, the Apple Watch smart watch with 20 million and the Nintendo Switch video game console with 15 million.

Samsung was second on the USA Today list thanks to the combined sales of its Galaxy S8 and Note 8 phones, but only sold 33 million in the year.

An important detail is that Apple's sales figures include all models of its new phones: the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X. It is not yet clear exactly how many units were sold for each iPhone model in 2017, but Bloomberg recently reported that the sale of the iPhone X, which is more expensive, is lower than expected, and that customers seem to prefer cheaper models.

Even so, the total number of sales this year is huge. Apple had previously registered a record sales record in 2015, when it sold 230 million units.

The list of biggest sales in 2017 was as follows:
1-. Iphone: 223 million units

2-. Smartphones Samsung Galaxy S8 and Note 8:33 million
3-. Speakers connected to Amazon Echo Dot: 24 million
4-. Apple Watch: 20 million
5-. Video game console Nintendo Switch: 15 million

Apple risked introducing three new iPhones for 2017: the most expensive iPhone in history, the X of $ 999, along with two products, the 8 and 8 Plus, which for many consumers seemed minor updates with respect to models 7 and 7 Plus last year. Both the 8 and 8 Plus were overshadowed by the excitement of X, which initially sold and traded for thousands of dollars on eBay.

Although Apple sold more iPhones in 2017, it actually sold less than in 2015, when it sold 230 million units of the iPhone 6, a larger design that captivated the public.

Ives believes that Apple will have an even more successful 2018, with the update of its compact SE iPhone in the spring and more new phones in the fall. Of the more than one billion consumers of the iPhone, "350 million of them will be updated next year," says Ives.

The global market share of smartphones is dominated by Google's Android system, which owns 85%, compared to 15% of Apple's iOS. But the iPhone is the most popular smartphone brand, which has given it a huge advantage in sales compared to Samsung's Galaxy phones. However, Samsung has a broader portfolio of phones, and sells more in general. In fact, in 2016, Samsung sold more than 320 million phones, most of the cheaper phones were sold outside the United States, such as lines J3, On8 and A9.

As for the Echo Dots, Amazon announced that it sold more units during the Christmas holidays than any other product.

The Apple Watch Smart Watch found its place in this list, with 20 million units. The Watch was first introduced in April 2015.

Fifth is the Nintendo Switch, a $ 299 video game system that can be connected to your TV, you can play on the move, and you can connect to others, to play in groups.
