Along with the last quarter, Google is now regularly working to reach its market share numbers from the full digits. That’s good enough for fifth place, behind Apple (52%), Samsung (26%), Lenovo / Motorola (9%), TCL (5%).

Next for Google is Pixel 6a phone, which is too new to apply to any of these schemes. At $449, it’s more accessible than $900 and $600 from Google, but also in the “poorer than initially expected” price range than the iPhone SE and Galaxy A53. We’ll have to wait for the third quarter to end to see how this phone performs.
