The third week of 2018 saw devices from only three makers among the 10 most popular on our website. Samsung got five phones, followed by Xiaomi with four, while Oppo took the final remaining spot.
And even if it had the most devices on the chart Samsung missed on the first two positions, which are still held by the unofficial Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 and the Xioami Mi A1. The rumors that the Redmi Note line is coming to an end better be unfounded or Xiaomi risks angering quite a few people.
The Galaxy A8 (2018) gets third to become the highest placed Samsung handset as the Oppo F5 rose a spot to claim fourth.
The Galaxy J7 Pro got sixth, ahead of the other member of the 2018 Galaxy A family member - the A8+.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A got seventh, ahead of the two Samsung 2017 flagships - the Galaxy Note8 and the Galaxy S8.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 got the final available spot, keeping the Apple iPhone X off the top 10 this week.
I have J5 Pro & J7 Pro... Both are incredible... Feels and operates better than most iPhones. Seriously underestimated. Shares same S8 UI/X. More people moving over from Apple to Samsung.
Top 10 boring phone of the week that unfortunately trending. These people really have no taste or just simply being a cheapskate.
iPhone's own UI is not something creative itself. Its rather boring... Obviously manufacturers copying it are stupid as hell.
