Samsung is by far the 2nd most popular OEM in the United States, behind Apple, and much of that is due to the popularity of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge which launched in the first half of 2016. However, a new report claims that the Galaxy S7 is actually the most popular Samsung handset across the globe.
The ScientiaMobile Mobile Overview Report (MOVR) for Q1 2017 shows that the Galaxy S7 is used more than any other Samsung handset when browsing the mobile web. This title was previously held by the Galaxy S5 until it was eclipsed by the Galaxy S7 in March of 2017.
However, considering the fact that the Galaxy S8 was just launched, it’s far too early to tell if the latest device will overtake the likes of the Galaxy S7. It’s also unknown whether this data is based on just the Galaxy S7 or both the S7 and S7 Edge. Regardless, it’s impressive to see the S7 overtake a device that has been available for 3 years in the Galaxy S5.
If you remember, Phandroid provided a similar report for its own users and found that the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge trumped just about every other device across the United States. Coming in 2nd place was the Pixel/ Pixel XL with the Galaxy S5 being the most popular in Alabama.
