The Samsung Galaxy S II has kept rivals HTC and Apple at bay by retaining the top spot in June, according to the latest data from price comparison sit uSwitch.
However, according to the uSwitch tracker, HTC continues to dominate the top 10 with six different models including the original Wildfire and Desire handsets. Meanwhile, Google’s Android operating system powers 80% of the top 10 handsets.
The HTC Sensation and BlackBerry Curve 8520 both proved popular with buyers, according to the tracker. The Sensation – HTC’s first dual-core device – has sprung back up the charts following some minor price cuts. Meanwhile, the Curve 8520 remains as appealing to pay-as-you-go users as to those on a contract.
The HTC Desire HD has moved six places down the chart to number 10, largely as a result of discounts to the original Desire and Wildfire – both now available for free with contracts starting from just £10 per month.
USwitch technology expert Ernest Doku said: ‘The powerful and flexible Samsung Galaxy S II remains on top as networks and retailers continue to offer a number of strong mobile deals.
‘Samsung can’t rest on its laurels though. The influx of feature-rich phones like the HTC EVO 3D and LG Optimus 3D, both introducing a unique glasses-free 3D viewing experience, could seriously shake things up this summer. We’re also expecting a number of new BlackBerry handsets and of course can’t ignore the enduring rumours of a fifth model of Apple’s iPhone on the horizon.’
