Market research firm Kantar Worldpanel have teased their data for the 3 months ending February, and posted the above graph showing the relation and correlation between recommendation by carrier sales staff and actual market share of smartphones.
The graph show Samsung handsets come highly recommend and sell well, while Blackberry phones are not and sell poorly.
The data is from the Australian market, which they note mirrors UK, and what is interesting is that the data shows Nokia’s handsets are more recommended than HTC, Sony, LG, Blackberry or Moto handsets, and that it also has a higher market share than the other companies.
Windows Phone users have of course long complained of being discriminated against by carrier staff, but the data appears to show that this tide is turning.
