With all the clamor surrounding this year’s MWC over the past two weeks, we couldn’t find time to update you on the latest developments in phone interest trends on a weekly basis. Well, we’re back at it, and there’s plenty to talk about.
The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2016) joins its little brother A5 (2016), which entered the chart earlier, and the two occupy 10th and 8th spots respectively. In between them we have the Sony Xperia X Performance, the Japanese company’s new flagship.
The Galaxy J5 is far from its regular comfort zone on the podium, this week in 7th. In 6th we find the Lenovo Vibe K4 Note, the bronze holder in the last edition of the chart.
Samsung’s sexier S7, the S7 edge, enters the chart in 5th spot, with the LG G5 slightly ahead. Long-time champion Galaxy J7 has lost the crown, again, but still manages to hold on to the third.
Xiaomi’s brand new flagship Mi 5 storms straight into second, not surprising for a device arriving a long year and half after the one it replaces, with top-end specs too.
It is, however, the vanilla Galaxy S7 that snatches the gold. Promising brand new camera, generous battery capacity, premium build, waterproofing, and storage expansion – pretty much all of the important boxes have been checked. Samsung’s Galaxy S6 stood on top for weeks on end last year, and we’re seeing no reason for the S7 not to.
