iPhone XR was the most popular phone in the US in Q2 2019
The Apple iPhone XR was the best selling smartphone in the United States in the second quarter of 2019 with a 7.8% market share, and the other two phones in the top three ranking were also iPhones, the iPhone 8 and iPhone XS Maxaccording to research firm Kantar World Panel, which presented its data about smartphone sales in Q2 2019.

Samsung's latest flagship phones, the Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10, stood at number four and five in the US market.

Motorola phone sales grew rapidly

An interesting trend that occurred in the second quarter is the growing popularity of Motorola's budget phones. The affordable Moto G and Moto E series performed well with Verizon, but also with retailers such as Wal-Mart.

What happened to Huawei?

The other big development on the global front was with Huawei. Its smartphone sales took a big hit in the second quarter of the year as less people were buying Huawei phones and existing owners were putting off upgrading, after news about a possible ban.

The report found that while Huawei did manage to finish the quarter with more sales than in the same period last year, sales decreased compared to the previous quarter and the phone maker took a big hit in June when news about the sanctions broke, performing 9% worse than in May.

Despite those bad news globally, Huawei and its sub-brand Honor performed incredibly well in China with a market share of 46.1% in Q2, meaning that nearly every one in two new phones in the quarter were made by the company.
