What are the 10 most sold cell phones in America in 2015? These ten highly popular handsets are manufactured by the exact opposite of the 5 most hated cell phone companies in the world and ranked by a research company named Counterpoint Research who went out of their way to bring us the valuable knowledge of the current dynamics in the mobile phone market.
Smartphones are a complete and utter plague that has swept across the whole world and the US does not make an exclusion to that. In fact, the US is one of the biggest consumer of these devices and also one of the moving forces behind their development. While almost everything you can see around you is assembled or built in an unimaginably huge Chinese factory or another sort of plant in another overpopulated Asian country, the design and software behind the two biggest rivals on the market – Google’s Android and Nexus devices and Apple’s iOS and iPhones were brewed up and developed right in the heart of the USA. Aside from that, the first smartphone to ever see the light of day is considered to be IBM’s “Simon” – another creation of the United States. Although today we would laugh at the processing power and size of this device, it’s worth noting that it was manufactured in 1993. Even back then, the phone had a resistive touch screen and an access to and means to manage e-mails, which back then were also not too advanced. You can, however, think about the amount you’d have to pay in data charges at the end of the month.
A long time has passed since 1993 and while back then only a chosen few could afford to own, let alone actively use the one and only available smartphone, nowadays we can say that they have become as common as their predecessors. The demand for mobile phones, especially such with more processing power and newer capabilities has greatly increased over the past five years and the companies behind the endless supply of newer, more powerful devices are looking for new ways to attract customers which can only leave one thinking what kind of otherworldly contraption could be coming right around the corner. Let’s take a look at some contraptions which are, in their own turn, quite “hot” on the market – the 10 most sold cell phones in America in 2015 (so far) as ranked in a market survey by Counterpoint Research which is based on sell through (channel sales) surveyed at major mass retailers, distributors across different markets (across 39 countries around the world). Furthermore, Counterpoint Research cite their survey as “sanity checked with demand side surveys & expert Analyst estimates “.
