If you look at the smartphones used by South Africa’s top telecommunications and tech CEOs you may think you are at an Apple convention.

Most of SA’s CEOs are using an iPhone 6s or an iPhone 6s Plus – a sign that Apple is still the leader in the high-end smartphone market.

There are, however, some exceptions. While Vodacom CEO Shameel Joosub uses an iPhone 6s, he also likes to use the Samsung Galaxy Note 5.

Cybersmart CEO Laurie Fialkov is also an Android user, and is saving money by using an affordable Samsung J1 Ace.

Here are the smartphones of choice of South African tech and telecom CEOs.
