It’s no surprise to see the Galaxy A12 make the list, as the device costs less than $200 and we thought it offered great battery life, durable software support, and a sleek design. But we regret the lack of power, the disappointing secondary cameras and the slow charge. But Samsung still offers a phone that masters the basics
Xiaomi was the only other Android maker in the top ten for 2021, with Redmi 9A in seventh place and Redmi 9 in last place. The tracker claimed that the two phones accounted for 22% of Xiaomi’s sales last year, with China, India and Asia-Pacific being the top markets.

Cupertino just lost $430 iPhone SE 2022It should generate a lot of sales this year due to its price. But both Samsung and Xiaomi were seriously hampered by component shortages last year, so addressing that hurdle could be key to improving sales in 2022.
