Phone tracking website uSwitch reports that Nokia’s cheaper phones are making a strong showing in January in the post-Christmas belt-tightening, to the detriment of expensive phones like the iPhone.

uSwitch telecoms spokesman Ernest Doku told Mobile News UK said: “The UK’s loyalty to brand Samsung is unwavering, but beyond that we’ve seen customers shaking-up the rankings, leaving Apple’s 4S for dust in favour of offerings from Lexus and Nokia.”

The list features 4 Nokia phones, two feature phones, and two Nokia Lumias, the Lumia 800 and 610.

In total the list consisted of 3 Samsung handsets, 4 Nokia handsets, one LG and two iPhones.

“A swathe of bargain smartphones like the C2-01 have leapt back into the chart as a residual effect of gifting and January sales, whilst canny consumers also wait to see high-end devices around the corner.”

“The mobile market is no stranger to a bit of January belt-tightening, with tech fans looking for sensible deals following a seasonal gadget binge.”

“With the launch of a revamped BlackBerry in the full-touch flagship Z10 and Nokia’s Lumia 620 looking to disrupt the affordable end of the spectrum, expect some significant movement in the coming weeks – not to mention major smartphone announcements amidst February’s Mobile World Congress.”

The Nokia Lumia 620 has just become available in UK, and appears to best address the penny-pinching mood in UK which should see the budget handset doing well over the next few months.
