Google Pixel sales still no match for iPhone, Galaxy S series

  • IDC says Google shipped 3.9 million Pixel devices in 2017

According to a recent tweet from Francisco Jeronimo, research director at IDC, Google Pixel shipments doubled to 3.9 million units in 2017. While the numbers are not great in the global smartphone market, it shows steady growth for the company's lineup.

The Pixel sales is also less than a typical week's worth of iPhone sales for Apple, 9to5google.com reported.

Apple sold 77.3 million iPhones in the Christmas quarter for an average of 849.450 iPhones a day, per ZDNet's math.

Disclosed to investors, Google advised Pixel phone shipments doubled in 2017 - a claim substantiated by IDC.

In this respect, the Pixel is no different from the Nexus phones that came before it. Even five months after the launch of the Pixel 1 at the end of 2016, the company couldn't keep the phone in stock on the Google Store.

The Google Pixel phones have been very well received since they first appeared in 2016.

Though there are undoubtedly many reasons why Pixel sales were so disappointing, the most problematic is its lack of retail presence. In the US, the phone is only offered through one carrier: Verizon.

Google has high hopes for the Pixel line. That means Apple needed 4.6 days to sell 3.9 million iPhones - mind you, these aren't iPhone X units, as Apple did not divulge the actual split for the period. People are much more willing to buy a cheaper product, and Google's nascent hardware brand might have a harder time convincing people to pay top-dollar. The company has made a serious investment in hardware.
