Best iPhone: XS. It's compact, fast, great camera.
Best Android: S9. It's compact, fast, good camera.
Best phablet: Note 9, mostly because it has more features for managing the size like one handed mode.

The XS Max to me is unrealized potential. Software doesn't make good use of its larger size and at least for me it's too big - the reason I went with iPhone this time was that aside from S9 and something from Sony, most Android phones are too big for me.

If your just asking 'Merican's, yeah maybe the iPhone for most people, as it goes well with other popular high sale items like the Big Mac hamburger, and Toyota Camry. The iPhone fits in with those .

But worldwide ? I'd say a mid range Android phones are most popular
