Google‘s first attempt at producing its own Android phone, the Pixel, has now sold more than a million units, Ars Technica reports.

Google doesn’t release sales data, but the website says that installs of the device-exclusive Pixel Launcher app just passed the 1 million mark. The website says the data includes preinstalled apps on new Pixel phones and doesn’t count installs on third-party devices.

While this is undoubtedly a milestone in the Pixel’s eight-month history, the number is overshadowed by its competition. By comparison, Apple sold 78.3 million iPhones in the last quarter of 2016, which included the iPhone 7, while Samsung is estimated to have sold 5 million units of the Galaxy S8 in its first month.

Google didn’t immediately respond to CNET’s request for comment.
