Google reportedly shipped 3.9 million Pixel and Pixel 2 devices in 2017
Google still has a long way to go before its Pixel smartphones can hit figures that high-end smartphones from the likes of Samsung always do but it's seeing good progress. If you recall, the IDC staffer recently revealed that Andy Rubin's start-up, Essential, shipped fewer than 90,000 phones in its first six months after launch.

iPhone and Galaxy phone sales dwarfed Pixel by a massive margin. Google's cheapest phone is last year's Pixel 1, which got a $100 price drop when the Pixel 2 came out and is technically for sale for $549 (although it's still sold out). In the United States, 90% of smartphones are sold via wireless carriers. Google seems to have improved its supply line issues with the Pixel 2, which has consistently been in stock.

In comparison, the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus sold 20 million devices in around four months past year.
