The semi-dated iPhone 5S still reigns supreme, according to Counterpoint research. Their metrics for May of 2014 show the flagship iPhone is stil the best-selling phone. Many expected the recently introduced Samsung Galaxy S5 would have snapped that title from Apple, but once again, the iPhone tops them all.
Back in 2012 we first had our hands on the Nokia Lumia 920 - here just under 2 years later, we’ve got the Nokia Lumia 930 in our hands.

That’d make this a Nokia Lumia 830.
The Nokia Lumia 635 introduced this past spring was promised for both T-Mobile and MetroPCS, but neither pricing nor specific availability were revealed at the time of announcement.

It is probably the fastest smartphone turnover ever. Just four months after Nokia, which was still really Nokia back then, unveiled the Nokia X and XL, Nokia, actually Microsoft, is announcing the new and literally shiny Nokia X2.
