The iPhone 13 Pro Max was the most popular mobile phone in the month of Christmas shopping in December, while the iPhone 12 was the best seller for the entire past year.
In fourth place we find the first product from the competitor, which is of course Samsung, which will not surprise you who followed the lists last year. In December, Samsung was not found until it took fifth place again with the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra.
The iPhone has been on top all year
“Apple and Samsung are strong among Telia customers, sharing the entire top list, with eight and seven models in the top 15 respectively. Apple’s iPhone 13 series stands firmly on the podium, while Samsung Galaxy Z Flip climbed to tenth place.”, sums up Telia.
These top lists would have been more interesting if there were more than two, sometimes three with OnePlus in low positions, that would regularly have competed with the same two companies that have some kind of ongoing monopoly, at least among Telia customers.
The list of best-selling phones in a total of 2121 together consists of only two brands: Apple and Samsung. All Samsung models on the top list support 5G from Telia, while the slightly older Apple models, the iPhone 11 and SE, are the only ones on the top list that don’t support 5G.
