The latest uSwitch top 5 suggests that the Samsung Galaxy S II is the most popular phone in the UK. However, it should be stressed that the ranking is based on popularity (searches on particular comparison websites) and sales.
In second place is the ever-popular iPhone 4 (now almost one year old), with the brand new HTC Sensation in third. Bringing up the rear is the original HTC Desire, one place ahead of its slimmer, front camera-packing bro, the HTC Desire S.
I won’t lie to you; the accompanying graph has me absolutely baffled. It appears to show that the HTC Sensation (yellow) was the most popular phone at the end of March, before inexplicably flatlining for a few weeks.
Similarly, the iPhone 4 (green) and Samsung Galaxy S II (red) shoot out of nowhere at different points, with near-vertical increases in “popularity”. What the hell do I know? I’m no graphematician. I’m sure it all makes sense in uSwitch’s brain.
