2014 is almost over and case maker Krusell has just released their top ten list of best selling phones. Krusell bases their list on the number or volume of cases sold for each phone so it’s an interesting take on things for sure…
Krusell Top seller list in December is a summary of the full year’s sales. Its annual Top seller list holds Apple’s iPhone 6 as the number one device of 2014.
– I’m impressed by the volumes of iPhone 6 cases sold during the last months, says Ulf Sandberg Managing Director at Krusell. We have to remember that even though the first phones hit the streets in September, many regions had to wait for their launch for weeks which makes their performance even more impressive.

During the FIFA World Cup Sony invested heavily in promoting their Z2-series, which created a high demand from the consumers for that device, hence they ended up at a well-deserved second place this year. On the third place of the 2014 Top seller list, we find Sony Z1 Compact. A device that has been highly appreciated by its users, due to Sony did not compromise on the specifications on this value device.In Summary five Sony-, three Apple-, one Samsung- and one Nokia/Microsoft device completes Krusell´ s list for 2014.
Sandberg continues;If these brands will have representation on our list one year from now, when we present the annual list for 2015 wouldn’t be a surprise to me. My guess is that we’ll also see one or two new brands, like Lenovo, in the following year to come, Ulf Sandberg ends.
