Your first smartphone - what brand was it? (poll results)
Whether your very first smartphone was a great device, a disappointing one, or just a decent piece of technology, you most probably remember the company that made it. That's why, earlier this week, we decided to publish a poll in order to know the brand of the first smartphone you've ever owned.
The poll results are now in, and we're not surprised to see that many of our readers had a Nokia as their first smartphone. The Finnish company is leading the pack when it comes to votes by a very high margin, having been voted by 1,459 users (41.56% of the total). Thanks to its army of Symbian handsets, Nokia was the world's top smartphone vendor for many, many years - until 2012, when Samsung, helped by Android, took the lead.
Speaking of Samsung, the South Korean company was behind the first smartphones of 365 (10.4%) of those who voted in the poll. After Nokia and Samsung, the top 5 includes Motorola (330 votes - 9.4%), Sony Ericsson (272 votes - 7.75%), and HTC (261 votes - 7.43%). Apple received only 89 votes (2.53%), so it's obvious that iPhones have been rarely bought as first smartphones - at least among our readers.
P.S.: Pictured above are three Symbian smartphones from Nokia's glory days: N79, E61 / E62, and N95.
