The iPhone 13, iPhone 14 Pro Max and iPhone 14 were sales leaders during the year.
Apple did it again. The US company held 8 of the top 10 best-selling phones in 2022, according to data from Counterpoint Research.

Enthusiasts and those looking for a more advanced iPhone variant helped get the iPhone 14 Pro Max off to a good start .
Not as successful, but present, is the iPhone SE 2022 , thanks to sales in Japan, Counterpoint explains .
The figures also reveal the failure that the iPhone 14 Plus has meant , which does not seem to have convinced despite offering a larger screen than the base model.
The iPhone 12 also remained in force, but it is clear that it is on the way out after being the best-selling cell phone of 2021.
Samsung managed to position two cell phones on this list: the Galaxy A13 and the Galaxy A03 , both models more focused on the user looking for an affordable phone.
Latin America, the Caribbean and India contributed the most to the sales of the Galaxy A13 . Latin America, the Caribbean, the Middle East and Africa were strong markets for the Galaxy A03 , which opted for a UNISOC chip .
This year, a new Galaxy A14 arrives with 5G connectivity, which means a more attractive proposition for this sector.
