From 2015 into 2016, iPhone sales have dropped precipitously declining from 231 million global units to nearly 212 (over an 8% drop) prior to Apple’s release of its iPhone 7 in Q3 2016. With major Android smartphone maker Samsung reeling from its recent Galaxy Note maladies, Google’s first phone Pixel is seemingly well-poised to capture meaningful market share.

Launched on October 25, 2016, Google’s first smartphone seeks to be iPhone 7’s head-on competitor.

While it is still early to tell, initial finds reported in Forbes indicates that Google’s Pixel is fairing better than its Nexus though worse than Samsung’s Galaxy S7. Pixel is projected to sell 3 to 4 million units before year end—small potatoes when compared to the 26 million Galaxy S7 phones Samsung has sold. For now, Google has sold out of its initial Pixel batch as purchases exceeded expectations causing a 3-4 week delay for consumers.

In comparison, Apple’s iPhone 7 is projected to sell more than 60 million units by 2017. Recent Q3 reports show the iPhone securing 104% of smartphone industry profits, however iPhone sales are retracting—down nearly 14% quarter over quarter according to BMO Capital Markets. Apple needs to overcome both a stalled smartphone market and a Google operating system presently found on 90% of all phones.


Both Google’s Pixel marketing and hardware aims directly at Apple’s iPhone (the Pixel ships with an iPhone-to-Pixel adapter for easy transfer of contacts and photos).
