Canalys: U.S. smartphone market down 5% in Q3 2023

Asian Tech Press (Nov 13) -- The U.S. smartphone market declined 5% year-over-year in the third quarter of 2023, continuing a downward trend, market researcher Canalys said on Friday.

Nonetheless, the U.S. smartphone market grew 21% year-over-year to 31 million units due to the launch of Apple's latest iPhone and carrier promotions for premium device upgrades, Canalys said in a report.

In the U.S. smartphone market, the top five vendors in terms of shipments in the third quarter were Apple, Samsung, Motorola, TCL and Google.

Apple's shipments fell a modest 8% to 17.2 million units. The relatively late release of the iPhone 15 versus the iPhone 14 contributed to the drop.

Samsung's shipments rebounded slightly from the second quarter to 6.8 million units, with its new foldable phone performing well, accounting for more than 20% of its shipments.

Motorola recorded its best quarterly performance since Q2 2022, capturing 9% of the market share, with shipments up 14% year-on-year.

TCL and Google Pixel rounded out the top five, each gaining 4% market share and shipping 1.3 million and 1.2 million units in Q3, respectively.
