Are Nokia phones better than Gionne

Nokia is back: HMD sells more smartphones than HTC, Sony & Co.

The "Nokia" brand is obviously giving the newly founded Finnish company HMD Global an excellent first year. After the first figures were recently available, a market researcher has now provided additional details and made it clear that "Nokia" now sells more smartphones than Sony, ASUS & Co. Neil Shah, analyst and partner at CounterPoint Research, had the first details a few days ago HMD Globals called good business in the first year since the revival of the "Nokia" brand in the mobile phone market. In Shah's opinion, the certain nostalgia surrounding the Nokia name is, as expected, one of the main reasons for the good sales figures.

In twelve months out of nowhere in 11th place worldwide

According to his calculations now quoted on Twitter, HMD Global was able to establish its brand, licensed by the Nokia group, in some countries in the first year on the top position. In Vietnam, for example, the company is in first place in terms of sales figures - ahead of Samsung, Apple & Co. In terms of simple feature phones, thanks to devices such as the refreshed Nokia 3310, as previously reported, the company is in first place worldwide with a 15 percent market share.

Remarkably, HMD was also able to land well in front with "Nokia" in Europe. According to CounterPoint analyst Shah, the company even came third among smartphone manufacturers in the UK in the fourth quarter of 2017. Compared to other brands, HMD Global has been extremely successful thanks to the name "Nokia" and ranks 11th among smartphone manufacturers worldwide.

With its 4.1 million units sold in the last three months of 2017, HMD not only left some Chinese competitors like Meizu, Gionee and Coolpad behind, but also sold more devices than Google with its Pixel series, for example. According to Shah, HTC, Sony, OnePlus and Alcatel also had to admit defeat to the regained brand name "Nokia" for smartphones.
