While not everyone enjoys the large screen iPhone 6 Plus, it seems the iPhone 6 duo managed to help the Cupertino company get its smartphone sales back on track. Despite tough competition, iOS-powered smartphones climbed above Android handsets in terms of US sales for the first time since 2012.

Market research division of WPP, Kantar Worldpanel ComTech, has just published a report that reveals Apple enjoyed increased sales during the Christmas season across three key markets - the US, Europe, and China. "While the success of the iPhone 6 and 6Plus is unprecedented, this quarter’s performance also points to Apple having its strongest portfolio ever," says Kantar Worldpanel ComTech chief of research Carolina Milanesi

According to the report mentioned above, Apple's iPhone 6 was the best-selling smartphone in the US, as well as the most popular one to give as a gift during the 2014 holiday season. Smartphone penetration in the US rose to 59 percent while Android sales declined across China and the big European markets, where only Italy witnessed an increase in sales. However, it is worth mentioning that Xiaomi remains the best-seller in mainland China.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
