People sure love the Apple iPhone and Samsung Galaxy.

According to a new study by market research firm Counterpoint Research, the Apple iPhone and Samsung Galaxy lines of smartphones were the top-selling devices of 2019. 

Apple took up a whopping six spots in the top 10 list based on global smartphone market share. The iPhone XR was the best-selling device of the year with a 3 percent market share around the world. The iPhone 11, Apple’s newest entry-level phone model, was in second.

With just over 2 percent of the global market share, the iPhone 11’s placement on this list is certainly notable. Apple released the phone on Sept. 20, 2019, giving it less than four months to rise as the second best-selling smartphone of the entire year.

Samsung’s Galaxy A50 and Galaxy A10 rounded out the next spots as the third and fourth best selling phones of 2019, respectively.
