What is the most popular Windows Phone device on the market right now? None other than the Nokia Lumia 920 — but who would have guessed otherwise, considering that Nokia is the top Windows Phone 8 OEM worldwide, with over 80 percent control of the market.
AdDuplex, the largest cross-promotion network for Windows Phone 8 apps, released its new monthly report. The report shows the Nokia Lumia 920 taking the top Windows Phone handset spot by unseating the Lumia 800. Currently, the Lumia 920 holds a 14 percent market share among other devices running the Windows Phone operating system for smartphones.
The Lumia 920 was released worldwide in November 2012, and since then has gone on to become the most popular Windows Phone 8 device before taking the throne of most popular Windows Phone handset overall.
AdDuplex also provided a graph that showed a few bumps on the road for the Lumia 920. This might have to do with the supply problems Nokia was having. If that wasn't a factor, the Lumia 920 could have gone on to do a lot better compared to how it is performing right now.
AdDuplex also shared that Nokia now has over 80 percent control of the Windows Phone market, followed by HTC with 14 percent, Samsung with 5 percent, and other OEMs such as Dell, Huawei, and LG with less than 1 percent each.
In the U.S. Nokia is the most popular Windows Phone OEM with 66 percent share, while HTC comes in second with 26 percent, and Samsung in third spot with a meager 7 percent.
Here is the market share for Windows Phone devices:
1. Lumia 920: 14 percent
2. Lumia 800: 14 percent
3. Lumia 710: 13 percent
4. Lumia 610: 11 percent
