See The Most Popular Smartphone Brand In Nigeria For Q1 And Q2 2015, According To Google Trends

With just 4 days to end the Second Quarter of the year, I wanted to find out the most popular Smartphone brand in Nigeria for Q1 and Q2, 2015 (I used only Android Phones because of their high market share in Nigeria).
Since most of our buying decisions begin on Google, the best tool to curate the data was Google trend that shows you the total search rate per each given term and also allows you compare 2 or more terms.
However, given the fact that you can only select 5 terms per result,  I categorized these Smartphone brands into two classes, the Global brands, and the Nigerian brands – You should know what smartphones fall under the Nigerian brands,  for those who don’t know, I am referring to the likes of Tecno, Infinix, InnJoo and so on.

Which Nigerian SmartPhone Brand is The Most Popular In Nigeria For Q1 and Q2?

Now this is a very close one, however, we can only have one King, the most sought after phone under this category is no other than Tecno!

    1. Tobi Ayeni says:

      Lol, I only selected android phones, I didn’t even include iPhone

    2. Kelvin says:

      Nokia Lumia?? People don’t use lumia phones , compared to Android and Blackberry.

      1. feranmi says:

        I do and I know a lot of people who do.. and as I go to work everyday, I see people sporting lumias

  2. feranmi says:

    Well u shud na. They are still among the top brands

  3. korede says:

    Go Samsung izz ya buyday! .. Samsung has been taking over Nigeria since 1759

  4. titi says:

    I am actually not surprised, when I saw the title of the article, I concluded tha tit was either tecno or samsung

  5. Kay says:

    Honestly, I don’t know why Nigerians will die for the Berry. Thought they were extinct 🙄

    1. Kelvin says:

      LOL. I was at computer village with a friend yesterday. I managed to go Hands-On with BB Z10 and I was totally disappointed. The lack of physical button made it difficult to use. Expecially multitasking.
      My friend is a core BB fanboy. I dont know what he likes in BB Smartphones.

      1. Kay says:

        Even mere scrolling through Konga’s phone store you’ll find out that they sell like “pure water”.
        Imagine the new leap with little or no publicity has crossed 100 sales already. 🙁
        The overpriced passport is selling like mad. 😥

        1. titi says:

          Nigerians don’t have blackberry phones because of their build or functionality, what you people are failing to understand is that data plan on a BB is cheap and tthis is a strong advantage considering the amount of paying for data on android platforms

          1. Kelvin says:

            Have you heard of Glo Bis on android?
            That is what most Nigerians are currently using.

          2. Kay says:

            At the hole were I stay, only Etisalat works, so I have been forced to stick with their android 2GB for 2k plan.
            Spend close to 5k every month just to browse 😥
            I can’t wait to leave this prison 😈

          3. Sir Stevoe says:

            Hehehe

          4. Kay says:

            Seems like you use one….. And yea you’re right…… Bis is a USP.
            But that wouldn’t change my mind! :mrgreen:

  6. vjsmiles says:

    That is because the hype that comes with BlackBerry phones aee top notch.
    You hear them telling you crazy specs so you fall in love with them @ kay.

    1. titi says:

      nah I beg to disagree, top notch bawo?

      1. Kay says:

        Yea @VJsmiles
        I had to read that part of your comment like 3 times…….. Which high end specs. 😐

  7. SweetSusie says:

    Nicely done misstechy.. this is a well done research

  8. Sir Stevoe says:

    Yeah… I see Infinix closing that gap pretty soon..
    Up Samsung! #TeamAndroid ! 😛

    1. Kay says:

      Read my comment again…..
      Blackberry has got no ‘top notch” speced phone 😛

  9. vjsmiles says:

    You didnt get my point or what?

  10. KENSHI says:

    wait… looks like Tecno and Infinix are increasing in market share o. LOOOL. Samsung and Blackberry should be careful, the chart looks more like the kings are going for a fall though.

  11. bunmi says:

    I like techno because of its large market in nigeria.By http://nairapointsblogspot.com

  12. Charles says:

  13. felix says:

  14. Debuchy says:

    Will someone just tell me were infinix zero 3 stands?..It seems that machine hasn’t been discovered…

  15. How about the new Infinix hot 4? Where does it stand?

  16. aos kenni says:

    hummm….tecno phantom 6plus rocks……1 thing about tecno iz dat dey ar very well stronger and durable than infinix…..infact there fones ar nw getting a little bit expensive

  17. chubby says:

    Infinix will catch up at the rate they are going now…improving the specs on their phones…good marketing strategy….think they will be gunning for samsungs spot next….but wouldn’t mind seeing WP10 on some chart….am a big fan!
