Google is pleased that so many Samsung users are dropping their Galaxy handset for the latest pixel. In one sense, statistics can be disappointing for the company. Part of the pixel line was developed to get iOS users to test the Android ecosystem based on Google Assistant's outstanding Virtual Assistant. Overall, 80% of Pixel 3 shoppers were using an Android phone from last October through the end of the year, when they made the purchase.
Counterpoint has also measured similar data for the OnePlus 6T and found that 37% of consumers shop The phone replaced a Samsung model. 16% switched from iPhone to OnePlus and 15% used an LG mobile phone. Counterpoint research analyst Maurice Klaehne said that when T-Mobile launched the OnePlus 6T, many subscribers to the operator were upgraded from a Galaxy J2 and the Galaxy S7. 70% of those who switched from an iOS-powered mobile phone to the OnePlus 6T had an iPhone 7, iPhone 6, or an older model.  Pixels 3 revenue was responsible for 7.3% of Verizon's mobile phone revenue in the fourth quarter.
However, the analyst says that the demand for OnePlus 6T declined in the first quarter of this year. According to Klaehne, the phone appealed to smartphone fanatics and those who are looking for value when buying a phone. However, he points out that Apple and Samsung have lowered the prices of their older models to match the value-based pricing of OnePlus. In addition, OnePlus does not spend much money on marketing their devices. As a result, OnePlus sees no market share in Counterpoint in the first quarter. According to International Data Corporation, OnePlus was the fifth largest smartphone brand in the US in the fourth quarter, even though it was not available in the US for the entire first month of the quarter.
In the fourth quarter of 2018, Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL accounted for 7.3% of Verizon handset revenue. Of the four major US carriers, Verizon only offers the Pixel 3 line, although the phone is compatible with all four mobile carriers. It can also be purchased from retailers like Best Buy and Google's online store. The OnePlus 6T accounted for 2.4% of T-Mobile's phone revenue from October through December. The device is exclusive to T-Mobile.
