Top 10 trending phones of week 10

Peter, 11 March, 2016

The Samsung Galaxy S7 continues to reign in our Top 10 weekly chart. Samsung's latest flagship drew the most attention from the new batch that launched at the MWC - the LG G5 is currently 13th, the Xperia X series barely made a blip.

The Galaxy S7 edge tumbled out of the Top 10, apparently the larger, curvier screen did not bring enough appeal. We already published our S7 review and the S7 edge review will be out soon!

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 3s are enjoying a burst of popularity, the both of them (MediaTek and Qualcomm versions). Combined, they will easily top the Galaxy S7 in popularity.

Below that are the Samsung Galaxy J7 and J5, which used to rule the land and, in fact, are still quite hot amongst our readers.

The Xiaomi Mi 5, a credible competitor to the S7 that is yet to ship to consumers, takes 6th place. It used to be 2nd, but the more affordable Redmi Notes elbowed it out of position.

Then there's another duo from Samsung's alphabet lineup, the Galaxy A5 and A7, the 2016 editions of the premium mid-rangers. These two are higher up the price ladder than the Js with metal frames and higher resolution screens (Super AMOLEDs across the board).

Rounding off the Top 10 is the Lenovo Vibe K4 Note - an affordably priced mid-ranger with a metal frame, 5.5" 1080p screen, fingerprint reader and a 13MP camera with phase detection AF. We will have a review of the K4 soon.
