[Chat] Xiaomi to the podium! GSMArena.com Top 20 Most Popular Smartphones of 2018

Dear Mi Fans,

Yesterday GSMArena.com has released the top 20 most popular smartphones of 2018 and we’re extremely excited to announce that 6 Xiaomi phones are in the chart, but most importantly.. we got ranked 1st, 2nd and 3rd!

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro got place number 1, followed by Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 (Redmi 5 Plus) in second place and Xiaomi Mi A2 in third place.


On a comparison with the results from last year and other manufacturers performances, GSMArena wrote:

The Chinese maker is up by one, showcasing that the global trend of Xiaomi catching up to the big guys is on every level.
The most popular phone of 2018 was the Redmi Note 5 Pro and it completely smashed any competition. It was so popular, that the other two Xiaomis following couldn’t gather the same number of hits even if they combined their powers.

It’s very interesting to notice that the top 10 includes more midrangers than flagships, highlighting the interest of the market for budget phones.

The other 3 Xiaomi phones in the chart are Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite in 18th place, Xiaomi Pocophone F1 in 19th place and Xiaomi Mi 8 completing the chart in 20th place (best phone of the year based on Mi Community UK).

It seems another trend has been on the move which is quality budget and mid-tier smartphones. How well Xiaomi approached their strategy. Giving pretty much essentials  wrapped in a very overall attractive package.

I don't know how much is this business model viable but if they sell phones like a hot cakes thrn why not?  Its not like Xiaomi phones are dirty cheap, by value this OEM provides is well thought, calculated and rich.

I wish Xiaomi continue this trend, don't sleep on the laurels and get somewhat arrogant which is a very popular trap down the road.

That makes loads of sense, people have realised that when they buy ''flagships'' all they pay for is the brand, and can have the same (and better, in many case) paying half.

Certainly is, but then, every person's needs in phones are different. I'd be really annoyed if the market wasn't full of possibilities, which is why I love the rise of brands like Xiaomi, who want to get people to get the perfect piece of kit for them. (especially compared to the competition who thinks we should adapt to THEIR way of thinking :P )
