I don't get the big deal with the lumia 920 or the 820. I am no hating on the phones at all but I work in a phones shop in the UK and last year i sold a lot of lumia 800 but after the 920 and 820 came out people dont want them at all they are really not selling still no surprise the samsung galaxies are selling like crazy even the iphones and it seems more people are after the 4s than the 5

This list has nothing to do with best sellers phones, otherwise HTC One X should have selled more than 920.

The big winners are Androids and Apples.
Nokia fans are desperately trying to promote Lumia junk but everyone knows that's just what it is.

They run automatic scripts to keep the hits up but everyone knows it's fake.

Why should it be GSMArena's fault if that happens?

GSMArena top 10 most popular phones for 2012 consist of 4 Samsung phones at number 1,6,7 and 10. Congrats to Samsung and I bet the upcoming S4 will remain the No 1 most popular phone in 2013. Cheers and once again a Happy New Year to GSMArena and fans out there.
