Lumia 920T tops Amazon China sales ranking, leaving newly released iPhone 5 at 10th rank.


Some four days back we reported how Lumia 920T was sold out and was topping the best sellers chart at Amazon China. In between it got a big challenger in form of iPhone 5 and briefly iPhone 5 topped the charts. But now check the sales ranking, and Lumia 920T is back to top in spite of it being “out of stock” (What is happening, Nokia ?). Where is iPhone 5 in the ranking? At 10th and 14th positions. It is heartening to see Lumia 920T doing so well on pre-orders only.

Mind you guys this is Amazon China’s best selling list including dirt cheap phones which go in large volumes, hence it is significant to see Lumia 920T doing so well on the sales charts.

Thanks @easycapexpertti for the Tip. Cheers!!

  • You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something which I think I
    would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  • Amazon China generates big volumes of phones and the above chart is inclusive of all kind of dirt cheap phones, which really sell in huge numbers. Though it is not wise to make opinion based on only Amazon’s sales ranking, but it is certainly one of the big sales channels.Also, Lumia 920 is also there, which has been sold out completely on Amazon and on other retailers as well.

  • Chanell of Nokia is Nokia Mobile and Nokia Unicom……
    Nokia can show much massive numbers than Apple….

    • Whatever

      Only 10% of the smartphone sales go through the carriers in China .

      I would consider it a great result if Nokia can match Apple in China.

  • Whatever


    Vast majority of iPhone sales are made directly through Apple’s own retail channels, not through Amazon. Most likely people prefer buying their iPhones from Apple Stores instead of Amazon.

    The 2 million sold iPhone 5’s and Lumia 920’s ranking in the Amazon are not comparable numbers by any definition.

    • Okay.. So that’s Apple’s own stores into action too and what about Nokia Priority Stores? I’m not known if they’re present in China too but if the are they too will be selling some units.
      Just hoping the numbers come out good here. Seriously can’t see such an amazing company dying out just because Samsung can produce more crap. How can competition affect this giant? Just needs some strategic decisions from top management and I’m sure Nokia can start rocking back (y) 🙁

    @ Narender That is what one can hope, but its more realistic that a majority of iphones were purchased directly through apple.

  • But, apple recently reported that they sold over 2 million iPhones in China during this opening week. So, we can expect Lumia Sales going around at the same pace too? That will be magical moment for Nokia 😀
