Nokia 105 is best-selling featurephone of Q1 2022

According to market researcher IDC, despite declining sales, the market for feature phones is still worth 1 billion US dollars. For years, this market has been losing out to the smartphone market but remains interesting for some brands. HMD Global, for example.

Of the 58.9 million devices sold, the Nokia 105 was the most popular. A regular cell phone with all the necessary features for not much money. Not everyone has hundreds of dollars to spare for a new phone, and then the 105 is a reasonable alternative.
