The top 10 bestselling mobile phones of all time

Posted by

The list of the top 10 bestselling mobile phones of all time is an interesting one. 8 of the 10 are Nokias. The only entry by Samsung is the only device in the iPhone era. Motorola shows up on the chart too. The only smartphone on the list is a Symbian OS (Series 60) device and the best selling smartphone of all time. All others are feature phones.

These are the top 10 bestselling mobile phones ever

  1. Nokia 1100 – 250 million
  2. Nokia 1110 – 250 million
  3. Nokia 3210 – 160 million
  4. Nokia 1200 – 150 million
  5. Nokia 5230 – 150 million
  6. Nokia 6600 – 150 million
  7. Samsung E1100 – 150 million
  8. Motorola RAZR V3 – 130 million
  9. Nokia 2600 – 135 million
  10. Nokia 1600 – 130 million

The hugely popular Nokia 3310, with a total sales figure of 126 million, narrowly missed being on the top 10 chart. There you have it – the top bestselling mobile phones of all time.


  1. Okay now I’m confused. A couple of days ago there was an article claiming the Nokia 6600 was the biggest selling phone of all time.

    The 6600 sold 150 million units in its time (2003-2007). But the Nokia 1100 (2003 – did they ever stop selling this thing??) sold 250 million. Even the phone that kicked off the phone popularity war, the Nokia 3210, supposedly sold about 160 million.


  2. 6600 yeah! My 1st smartphone. It was a difficult decision between that and the Sendo X (produced by Nokia too) but the uncomfortable pin-like trackpad and poor build of the Sendo turned me off.
    I remember converting my entire music library to 32kbps just to fit on my 256mb(!!!) minisd memory card. Later regretted this decision. Used ultraMp3 to play and a plugin to enable mp3s as ringtones.
