Is Apple’s iPhone X doing badly? That’s what seems to be what some are claiming, with reports suggesting that production will be halved. Others claim otherwise, saying that the reports are overstated. Now it looks like according to the latest report from Counterpoint, they claim that the iPhone X is doing well.

According to the report, it seems that based on Q4 2017’s figures, the iPhone X actually outsold the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus by a 2-to-1 ratio. However note that this is just the US market so it is unclear as to how the iPhone X is doing in other markets, although previous reports are claiming that older iPhone models are actually doing better, like how the iPhone 7 Plus is the second best-selling smartphone in China.

We suppose we’ll need to wait for the official Apple figures before we can determine whether or not the handset is a flop. According to Counterpoint’s Research Director Neil Shah, “However, since its launch on Nov. 3, the iPhone X outsold the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus by a 2:1 margin. What this means is the super-premium segment (above $800) has grown from almost 0 percent in previous years to 25 percent share of the total smartphones sold in USA during Q4 2017, which speaks volumes for the potential of USA market and the U.S. consumers’ buying power.”

Apple is expected to officially announce their earnings on the 1st of February (which is today) where hopefully they’ll have the figures that will put the speculation to rest once and for all.
