While most people change their phones as soon as a new one is released into the market, others are indifferent to the smart phone trends for varied reasons such as lack of useful pre-purchase information as to which is the best to buy. We have presented the top selling smart phones of the first half of 2015 to you in this info-graphic perhaps this may guide your buying decision if you are in dire need of an entirely new smart phone or desire a good replacement. One striking thing about this list is the absence of one of the leading phone brands in the world – the Apple iPhone. While most brands occupy more than two positions in the rankings, not even the latest Apple iPhone 6 was found on the radar of the bestsellers. It is surprising that the premium iPhone could not make a list that fairly new Injoo brand succeeded in making; maybe for reasons such as high selling price or functionality match with another phone which costs lesser, maybe not - let the consumer decide. However, don't be taken by surprise if iPhone series occupy top positions in Q3 & Q4 – we can only wait and see. Generally, purchase decisions are made on varied reasons such as improved features, brand loyalty among other reasons.
Still don't know what phone to buy? Tecno R7 and brand mate Phantom Z were the 7th and 8th most sold phones of the first half of the year. Blackberry Q10 makes a third position as Z10 resides at number 9 leaving Injoo behind at 10. The Blackberry brand relentlessly fights hard to appeal to consumers amid a stiff competition with big players like Samsung whose phone models occupy the 4th and 6th positions. With Infinix Hot, Hot Note in top 2 positions and Infinix Zero grabbing the fifth spot, Infinix Mobility smartphones have proved to us that the Race is extremely HOT and only the most consumer-centric brands get the best ratings. When the Infinix mobile phone series gained entrance into the Nigerian mobile phone market, it was not certain whether the products would sell but as of today, Infinix Mobility now competes favourably in the market, raking in huge profits and grabbing top positions on bestselling phone charts even challenging the likes of Samsung, Apple and Tecno brands as a result of the low prices offered on Jumia for Infinix phones.
