It seems like iPhone’s biggest rival isn’t the Samsung Galaxy S3 after all.
According to William Blair analyst Anil Doradla, the iPhone has been dethroned as North America’s best-selling smartphone since its launch.
Doradla says that although the iPhone is still the best-selling smartphone on the AT&T and Sprint list, the Motorola’s Droid Razr Maxx has toppled new when we speak about Verizon.
It is good to note that Verizon has been aggressively marketing their 4G devices.
This comes as a surprise, since the iPhone 4S lacks 4G LTE capability. The Motorola 4G Razr Maxx and even the Galaxy Nexus have this capability. While the latter hasn’t really bothered the iPhone that much, Motorola’s Droid Razr Maxx seems like an excellent competitor.
Dorodla added that consumers are not holding on to their plans of buying an iPhone in anticipation of future smartphones to come. But this may change in a few months. He doesn’t believe that Apple will be shaken up by this development, since he believes that Apple will release an iPhone with 4G LTE compatibility.
The Galaxy Nexus by the way is the third top selling smartphone in Verizon’s line, behind the iPhone and the Razr Maxx.
Are you holding out on buying a new phone?
