Nokia, which has been in trouble waters for quite some time now, seems to be learning the art of swimming once again. This was revealed by a survey of The Mobile Indian, in which the online preferences of over one million people who visited the website in September were analysed.
As per the Handset Hotlist survey 2013, among the Top 25 phones, four are from Nokia. If we look at the last five Handset Hotlists, Nokia had managed three, one, two, two and two slots in reverse order.
Also, if we analyse consumer’s searching behaviour towards the rear camera’s pixel resolution we find that the festive season seems to have kicked in since, of the Top 25 handsets that made the list, 12 had 8 megapixel or higher resolution.
Commenting on the trend, a spokesperson for The Mobile Indian, said, “According to the data available with The Mobile Indian, last year too in October consumers were searching for phones that have better camera resolution, as 16 of the top 25 list in October had 5 or higher megapixel resolution.”
Spokesperson added that 5 megapixel was not a bad number at that time
In this month’s Handset Hotlist Micromax Canvas 4 was the most searched phone consecutively for second month.
Of the 25 most searched handsets, six each were from Samsung and Micromax, two each from Spice and Xolo, and one each from Karbonn, Gionee, HTC and iBall.
This month, consumer interest in different brands at position No 3 onwards was quite close.
