iPhone 4 toppled from top spot

Written by Nick Farell

HTC coming up
A survey by moble phone site goodmobilephones.co.uk claims that Apple's broken iPhone 4 is getting a good kicking from its arch-nemesis HTC.

The survey showed that Apple's iPhone 4 had been toppled from the top spot of UK smartphones and its position at the top of the smartphone pile may be in doubt. The month long survey of customer searches revealed that Apple's iPhone 4 came a paltry sixth in the top ten list of handsets searched for, losing out to three competing handsets from HTC.

The top phones were the HTC Wildfire, HTC Desire and HTC Desire HD. These were followed by the Samsung Galaxy S and Nokia's N8. Bringing up the rear in the site's top ten were the BlackBerry Curve 8520, the Samsung Tocco Lite, the BlackBerry Torch and the Sony Xperia X10.

Mark Owen, goodmobilephones' managing director said that it was price that's putting people off the iPhone 4, along with a lack of incentivising from Apple to pick their products over the competitors.

I have a HTC Wildfire and a Sony Xperia X10, and the HTC Wildfire is nowhere near as good as the X10. The only good thing about it is that it costs less.

This probably means that more people have the Wildfire, and thus more have voted for it, rather than it's a better phone.

The Galaxy S is probably the best of the lot.

This makes the list pretty meaningless.

I have a Droid X, I went with it because I don't like ATT. However, if the iPhone 4 was available on Verizon I would definitely get it. There simply isn't a better overall phone on the market. People bitch and moan about Apple, sometimes it's merited and some times it's not. That said, as soon as an iOS update goes live you can get it for your phone (assuming compatible hardware of course). You usually don't get that with an Android device (excepting the N1). Not to mention that half a year on the iPhone 4 still has one of the best hardware sets and the best mobile OS going. barely better than a non sequitur.

This is actually the most brand neutral and bitch free article I've seen Nick write. He must have forgotten to take his female hormone pills today.

"claims that Apple's broken iPhone 4" LMFAO! Nick has really outdone himself on this one!

I love it! Half the reason for why I even come to this site is to read these articles.

the pricing of the iphone4 is funny.from a place near where i live, you can pick up a 3GS, unlocked, boxed (not stolen), for £180.not bad.
but next year, i think apple will fall further behind, it just won't be able to keep up with all the new models from other manufacturers if it doesn't refresh the iphone quicker.the specs of phones have changed a lot over the last year, and i can see that change continuing further into 2011.

Upcoming as in 'you can't buy it'. Upcoming as in 'not on the market' yet. Upcoming doesn't count. Not to mention the increase in power consumption and the decrease in battery life you're going to get with a dual core. Not to mention it's running WinPhone7. WinPhone7 isn't bad but it's hardly 'there' yet. It's a first gen release in every sense of the word.

Also, I have a 4.3" LCD in my phone and the iPhone 4 LCD (SIPS) is in fact better even if it is slightly smaller. Yeah, that one is higher resolution than mine but 4.3" can be a bit unwieldy. I think a 4" LCD would be about the best size for a cell phone assuming the resolution is boosted enough.

What do I care if the fanboy monkey army here doesn't like to here factual, well thought out counterpoints? This site has posters that argue AMD has just as good GPU compute performance as nVidia and that Bulldozer will no doubt be faster than SNB even if no one has seen it yet.
