Report: Samsung Galaxy S II the most popular smartphone during June

Comparison service uSwitch has released some data on the UK smartphone market, which shows the most popular phones searched for and bought through its contract-switching network during the month of June.

The Galaxy S II held the #1 spot, with Apple’s iPhone in second place – then stacks of HTC Android phones and one lone BlackBerry make up the rest of the top ten.

Obviously this is just one snapshot of opinion provided by one retailer and its customers, so it’s not to be taken as a solid indicator of sales. But it looks about right, eh?

    Apple in 2nd place? Still going strong i see (esp. for a phone over a year old!). I though they had lost some of their shine, obviously not. I expected Blackberry to be higher, i see those phones everywhere!

    Apple are not going strong. They are getting hammered by an army of very good Android smartphones.

    Consumers are finally waking up to Apple’s evil and that they don’t have to put up with it anymore, just to get a nice phone, there are better, cheaper and less evil alternatives.

    All we need now, is for the same idiots that just woke up, to realise that Amazon are doing exactly the same with the Kindle… However chances are it will be WAY too late before the braindead masses wake up.

      Nowt wrong with the Kindle. I use it to read all my torrented books, and don’t turn on the wifi.

    This is just an indication of what phone people are interested in.

    Mark’s claim that ‘Apple are not going strong’ is quite bemusing, they still manage to rake in the most profits regardless of an ‘army’ that’s ‘hammering’ them.

    Consumers want something that just works, the iPhone does that. They do not care if Apple are ‘evil’ or not. To them the iPhone is a nice phone, they know they are going to get quality service, they know they’re going to get updates. They get assurance. Can they get that with Android? Probably not.

    I bet Mark is one of those who hates Apple and Microsoft while evangelizing Linux because it’s ‘free’ and not ‘evil’. But do 95% of the population care? Nope.

    The same so called ‘idiots’ want a reading experience that’s cohesive and simple and allows them to read the same thing on whatever platform. Where else can they get that?

    • LG/Google Nexus 5 review

      Nexus 5It’s smooth to use, the 1080p display is sharp, clear and bright, the device is extremely light and thin and therefore very pocketable and portable — much more so than other 5-inch phones we’ve used. And yet… we’re a bit unimpressed by the overall package…
