I don’t really follow the GSM Arena phone rankings much. I think the last time I mentioned it was because a reader said in the comments that the Asha 311 was there (at the time the only Nokia I think). The Asha 305 is there too.
That’s great stuff. Asha has been receiving a lot of praises and interest from consumers. It suits their budget and offers them a lot of smartphone-like features. From Nokia’s side, they’ve been great sellers.
The N8 is still there over 2 years later. The super camera that years later was still kicking new competition’s behind in the camera department.
But topping the list is the Nokia Lumia 920.
Is it because it’s new? Perhaps. Moto might like if it that was the case. The controversial handset? Or genuinely interesting because of it’s innovations?
Now let’s see if geeky consumer interest can see this phone achieve some sales (and continued sales for Asha too). I don’t recall if a Lumia had ever previously made it to this list. Perhaps it has. Again I don’t pay attention to this list. I know the N9 in its time was often in the top 10.
Hat tip to person who mentioned this in comments (apologies I can’t find it again to credit).
