We always find lists of best-selling devices interesting even if they’re from one retailer only. Well, especially if they’re from one of the biggest retailers.
Philippine-based MemoXpress has shared the top 10 phones that people bought from the company in 2020. And we’re not actually surprised to see the Vivo Y11 with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage sitting pretty at the top. It’s the same handset that MemoXpress called “the most-loved phone this ECQ [enhanced community quarantine]” back in June.
The said model is now priced at P5,999 (around $124 converted), but for almost all of the time since its launch in 2019, it was selling for P6,499 ($134). Vivo Philippines released a cheaper Y11 variant — priced at P5,499 ($114) — in August.
Hot on the Vivo Y11’s heels was the Nokia 105, which was rolled out to stores in 2017. It’s interesting to see a “dumb phone” in the top three — and the only one of its kind in the retailer’s chart.
In third place was the Huawei Y6p, which became available in the country in May last year. Like the Y11 with the higher memory configuration, the device costs P5,999 ($124). Other Huawei smartphones that made it to the list were the Y7 and Y6 Pro, all released in 2019.
In a price-sensitive country trying to weather the current pandemic, we are not shocked that no midrange and flagship devices were part of what MemoXpress calls its “overall top 10 of our Hot 100 Hitlist of 2020.”
