Gartner: Global smartphone sales drop again in Q3

STAMFORD — Worldwide smartphone sales dropped nearly 6 percent year-over-year to about 367 million units in the third quarter, as the market continues to see the effects of the coronavirus crisis, according to a report released this week by Stamford-based consulting and research firm Gartner.

Smartphone sales remain below last year’s levels despite the introduction of a number of 5G smartphones and a relaxation of government guidelines on shelter-in-place restrictions in some regions, Gartner officials said. But the results still pointed to a potential rebound, as the sales decrease was smaller than the declines of 20 percent in the previous two quarters.

“Consumers are limiting their discretionary spend even as some lockdown conditions have started to improve,” Anshul Gupta, senior research director at Gartner, said in a statement. “Global smartphone sales experienced moderate growth from the second quarter of 2020 to the third quarter.

SuperData: Black Friday and Cyber Monday digital game sales fell 10% to $3.9 billion

Digital games earned $3.9 billion worldwide between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, said market researcher SuperData. That represented a 10% decline from a year ago and it suggests even games aren’t immune from changing consumer habits during the pandemic.

Changes in consumer buying patterns led to a drop in Black Friday and Cyber Monday digital game revenue in 2020. Game spending is still on track for a record-breaking 2020 but consumer anticipation for next-generation consoles and the growing popularity of subscription services diminished the importance of the holiday weekend as a main revenue driver, said SuperData, a division of Nielsen.

Spending on PC games during the weekend was up 6% year-over-year, but this was more than offset by a 13% decline in console earnings. Unmet demand for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S likely depressed spending on digital console games, said Carter Rogers, an analyst at SuperData, in an

While reports of Xbox Series X fires seem to have amounted to nothing after it turned out people were blowing vape smoke through the cases, reports of NZXT’s H1 PC cases catching on fire—the ones that kind of look like an Xbox Series X—are real. As reported by TechSpot, the company is advising H1 owners who have yet to experience problems to power down their PCs until it can send a repair kit.
