And if you ask the Wall Street Journal, they will tell you that that consumers globally are increasingly selecting Apple iPhones over Android smartphones with the iPhone being seen as a must-have item.

It may be hard to pinpoint just a single reason why the iPhone and refurbished iPhone is the best-selling smartphone in the world – it could be its all‑new personalisation features, deeper intelligence, and seamless ways to communicate and share or perhaps it is its minimalistic and sleek design, the epitome of cool.
