(ThyBlackMan.com) During the first quarter of the year, the Apple iPhone 7 was the world’s best-selling smartphone. According to the data estimation done by a research firm, Strategy Analytics, Cupertino based company has sold around 21.5 million units in Q1 2017. According to the data, the sales figure results in a total 6 percent of the total sales recorded in the entire smartphone market. Apple is already ruling the smartphone market despite being competed by Google’s Android smartphones. Here’s what made iPhone 7 the world’s best-selling smartphone.

Industry analysts have given some factors responsible for the success of Apple’s iPhone 7 sales. Here’s what made people choose iPhone 7 over its rivals.

1. Design

The Apple iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are water resistant and it makes a lot of difference. Although the phones are not fully waterproof, but you can keep them submerged for more than 30 minutes in a meter of water. On the back side, the antenna lines are tweaked, and the blend of colors appear to be a great refinement.

The utilitarian design and strategically planned camera bump prove that Apple iPhones are getting better in terms of their overall looks. Undoubtedly, the company is making beautiful, user-friendly smartphones.

2. Software

Apple’s new operating system iOS 10 is wonderful. It is the best software update released by the company. The operating system clearly brings the expected sense of UI design. In terms of both operations and visual appearance, iOS 10 appears to be a highly appealing and functional mobile operating system.

A new version of iMessage with some surprising features and an improved version of AI assistant Siri make both the variants of the smartphone a great choice. The ability to extend Siri features with third-party applications is pretty amazing and allows users to connect it with different smart home devices. A much-improved Music app, feature-rich Control Center and News apps come with a wide array of new features.

3. Camera

Apple’s Phil Schiller said that iPhone camera is likely the best in the market. Since the company’s iPhone 4S model, Apple has managed to remain on top in delivering the best cameras in smartphones. When the company introduced the iPhone 7, Schiller again said the same and Apple proved it.

The revolutionary changes mobile cameras have brought lead many people to check camera quality as one of the main factors that actually alters their buying decision. Excellent quality of iPhone 7 camera is also a strong reason why Apple iPhone 7 became the world’s best-selling smartphone in the Q1 2017.

The iPhone 7 is far better than the iPhone 6S in terms of the lens. In the Apple’s iPhone 7, there’s a faster f/1.8 lens. Additionally, the photography experience is enhanced with better optical image stabilization and the flash also comes in four-color True Tone which is highly suitable for wider color capturing.

4. Availability

Apple’s wide reach is also responsible for its growth over the years. From Asia to Europe and Australian markets, Apple iPhone 7 is available worldwide. The global reach of the brand has made its phones first choice of many people across the US.

In its report, Strategy Analytics mentioned that the growth Apple has seen in sales during the first quarter of the year is a result of the company’s reach. Apple has established its numerous stores offline and online and buying its products is now easy. Be it marketing or sales, Apple is ruling the smartphone industry in many regions on the planet.

Bottom Line

Many smartphone manufacturers claim to deliver the best smartphones in the world, but Apple has proved it with its skyrocketing sales figures. There’s not much to hate about iPhone 7 because the need of more features and better configuration will always be there in every single phone available in the market. But as far as being world’s best-selling smartphone is concerned, Apple iPhone 7 deserves it without a doubt.

    Apple needs to step up, and stop releasing the same phone over and over. We know other then more ram, a better camera – not much has changed when it comes to the iPhone.

  2. Peter James says:

    Still rocking with my Apple iPhone 7 but I will admit – Samsung Galaxy Note 7 would have been the best smartphone if not for the exploding issue. -Smile-

    I do wish Apple would think outside the box with the iPhone 8. Make us Fanboys proud.
