Since the start of the mobile phone’s journey in 1983, more than 7 billion of these devices have been sold across the globe. But have there been some phones that were more popular than others? Here are some of the best-selling phones over the last few decades:
This little gadget was produced between 2003 and 2009 and sold 255 million handsets across the world. It wasn’t the most attractive or feature-packed offering but it was cheap and brought mobile phones to the mass market, especially in poorer nations. For these reasons, the humble Nokia 1100 became the best selling mobile phone in history.
Apple iphone 6
This model was available between 2014 and 2016 and sold an impressive 220 million handsets globally. It is the third best selling phone of all time, with the Nokia 1110 in second place. The success of the iphone 6 proved that even premium phones could become best sellers and the 6 remains the most successful of all Apple phones.
