Telecom operators and home appliance chains unveiled their best-selling phones in January.

DNA's number one Apple December 11 has fallen from the top three in December, followed by the Samsung Galaxy A20e for about 130 euros, which has been consistently on the list of DNA's best-selling devices since June 2019.

- The telephone market will grow slightly in Finland in 2021. The smartphone has already replaced many cameras, watches and PIN cards.

Today, it also serves as a wallet for more and more people and a key to a smart lock.

This development has led to an increase in the frequency of phone exchanges and a slightly higher investment in the phone, Sami Aavikko, CEO of DNA Kauppa, predicts in a press release.

Desert expects 5g phones to finally hit through this year.

  • Apple iPhone 11

    - The familiar list was boosted by Xiaomi, who returned to the top of sales for a long time.

    Among the ten best-selling phones, there were exceptionally four different brands.

    It seems that the share of 5g phones is permanently rising to more than half of all telephone sales, says Jussi Vuorinen, Senior Vice President, Equipment Business, Telia.

    According to Elisa, customers have found 5g in the average price range, and seven of the fifteen best-selling phones were 5g models.

    - The share of 5g phones in all devices sold is already more than half, and the share will continue to grow strongly this year, Ville Valkama, Elisa's business director for personal customers, believes in the release.

    DNA expects sales of smart watches to grow as more and more people want to track their own exercise, recovery and rest data.

    Telia's best-selling smartwatch in January was the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3. With DNA, Apple's smartwatch models took a triple victory in the list of best-selling smartwatches and bracelets.
