The Google Nexus 4 was the fourth top smartphone in the U.K. according to the list

U.K. carrier uSwitch.com ranks the top ten smartphones in the region every month. So which handset was number one in December? The 16GB Samsung Galaxy S III in blue was on top as it was in November. Moving up two spots to second, was the Samsung Galaxy S II while the Samsung Galaxy Ace rose from sixth place to third. The first non-Samsung Galaxy model was the Google Nexus 4 in fourth. Rounding out the top five is the 16GB Apple iPhone 4S, while the 16GB Apple iPhone 5 in black finished sixth.

The lone Windows Phone in the list was the Nokia Lumia 800 which was seventh in December after moving up four places. This was followed by the Samsung GALAXY Note II and the Samsung Galaxy S III mini, which moved down one place and up seven places respectively. The last phone on the U.K. top ten list for December was the Samsung Galaxy Ace II which was making its first appearance on the list.

What will January bring? Ernest Doku, telecoms expert at uSwitch.com, says that the return of BlackBerry with the introduction of the new BlackBerry 10 OS, new "turbo-charged" Android models and some new Windows Phone 8 devices will get the blood flowing. "What can be certain is that current favorites Samsung and Apple had better watch out - competition is certainly going to be heating up in the New Year," said Doku. The list is based on deal popularity and sales.

So LUMIA 920 was a flop? Some say Symbian was doing better than Windows Phone during the busy season.

another blind man! Lumia 920 is exclusive to EE so no way it can make it to the top !!! its obvious that's why nokia ended the exclusivity beginning with this month. besides why don't u go to china and see the rows of people waiting for the Lumia 920 to see its flop or not and if symbian can do better than wp in this busy season,then where's the 808 in the list???? oh i forgot its the lumia 800 which made it to the list

Hmm how can you expect the blind man to see the lines in China ... get some coherency at least when you type. BTW any sales numbers available for Lumia 920? Blind man has all ears open :)
