This week Samsung's Galaxy J series locked out the podium. The J7, J5 and J2 Ė in that order Ė make up the Top 3 smartphones by interest over the last 7 days.
That's not a huge surprise, the Galaxy J7 was first last week too and the Galaxy J5 was second. The Galaxy J2 had the top spot a couple of weeks ago, but last week it dropped sharply to 9th only to recover quickly. The J2 went on sale on Flipkart and Amazon India on October 9, which may be behind its sudden jolt of popularity.
The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime is on the rise again, going from 9th to 5th and now 4th over the last couple of weeks. Some North American carriers have some good deals on it, but it's an old model so we're not sure how it got so popular.
Then there's the Galaxy Note 5, which has been fluctuating lately. There was a promo on eBay for unlocked units a few days ago, but it's mostly holding tight until Samsung's phablet finally launches in Europe.
The Motorola Moto G (3rd gen) is rising up the ranks, perhaps boosted by the confirmation that it will get Android 6.0 Marshmallow (its Moto E sibling will not).
After the initial explosion, Apple iPhone 6s interest has been waning, but it is doing much better than its large sibling, which isnít even in the Top 20.
The Sony Xperia Z5 was Top 3 last week, shortly after it became available to consumers. Now it's barely holding on and is currently 9th. Guess those James Bond themed promos don't have much staying power.
