Most popular phones of 2021

Lucie Spraggs's picture


2021 may have started in an odd fashion, but one thing that hasn't changed is 'new smartphones'. The big smartphone giants are continuing to release new phones and you continue to buy them. So far this year all the most popular Smartphones sold and insured in the UK are Apples and Samsungs. A slight change from previous years, when Huawei had a look-in (the US sanctions and the lack of Google and other apps seem to have taken their toll).

Top smartphones of 2021
 

Interestingly there is a difference in the order of the most popular phones bought, and the most popular phones insured. It seems that iPhone users are more likely to insure their phones that Samsung. Whether this is because Samsung user are more likely to choose Samsung Care than a 3rd party insurer, or that they are simply more confident in their ability to look after their phones, we don't know.
