Global Twitter buzz

The iPhone X takes the lead in Twitter mentions, with its iPhone 8 siblings close behind.

Shockingly, it’s the OnePlus 5 that comes runner-up after the iPhone family. The Samsung Galaxy S8, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Huawei Mate 10, and LG V30 are the remaining smartphones from the pack to push past a thousand mentions.

In a surprising turn of events, the Google Pixel 2 XL is the least popular of the bunch.

Singapore searches

Narrowing the scope to Singapore web searches, we find out that the iPhone 8 reigns supreme. The iPhone X isn’t too far off, in second place, after gaining a huge uptick in web searches following its announcement in September.

The OnePlus 5 and LG V30 are proving to be strong flagship contenders, pulling ahead of Samsung smartphones.

Meanwhile, the data also reveals that there’s some room for nostalgic revivals such as the Nokia 3310 3G and the Blackberry KEYone, although there is a disappointing lack of interest in the Motorola Moto X4.
