Samsung has the top three UK bestsellers in January

uSwitch statistics reveal four Nokias, three Galaxy handsets and two Apple devices in monthly top 10

Samsung had the top three selling phones of last month in the UK, according to statistics on pay monthly sales published by comparison website uSwitch.

The Galaxy SIII remains at the top of the chart for the ninth consecutive month, followed by the mid-range Galaxy Ace and its former flagship device the SII.

Nokia has four handsets in the top 10 best-sellers of the month, but none of these run its latest operating system. The Symbian-based Nokia 100 and C2-01 make up the rest of the top five. Windows 7 phones the Lumia 800 and 610 are in positions eight and nine.

Apple’s 16GB version of the iPhone 5 was the seventh best seller with the equivalent 4S in tenth.

The only other manufacturer to appear was LG, with the Nexus 4 positioned sixth.

uSwitch telecoms spokesman Ernest Doku said: “The UK’s loyalty to brand Samsung is unwavering, but beyond that we’ve seen customers shaking-up the rankings, leaving Apple’s 4S for dust in favour of offerings from Lexus and Nokia.

“The mobile market is no stranger to a bit of January belt-tightening, with tech fans looking for sensible deals following a seasonal gadget binge.

“A swathe of bargain smartphones like the C2-01 have leapt back into the chart as a residual effect of gifting and January sales, whilst canny consumers also wait to see high-end devices around the corner.

“With the launch of a revamped BlackBerry in the full-touch flagship Z10 and Nokia’s Lumia 620 looking to disrupt the affordable end of the spectrum, expect some significant movement in the coming weeks – not to mention major smartphone announcements amidst February’s Mobile World Congress.”
