Nokia phones are the most trusted devices on Counterpoint ranking

HMD Global may not be having the best of the years since the revival of Nokia smartphones. However, this is pretty much understandable since the company suffered during Q1 and Q2 in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the disruption in the market. The Finnish company has postponed several of its smartphones and we’re still here waiting for the highly-anticipated flagship Nokia 9.3 PureView. Despite this, Nokia still rocks solid as one of the most trustable companies for some customers. That is what says Counterpoint Research. According to the research firm, Nokia tops the chart on its “Trust Ranking” for smartphone companies.

Counterpoint’s ranking evaluates four important segments – Software update frequency, security updates, build quality, and devices recommended for enterprises. Nokia has been doing a solid job by keeping its smartphones up to date and safe with regular security patches. In fact, we can say that Nokia is the only company that really succeeded with the Android One program. First of all, all eligible Nokia smartphones are currently running Android 10. The company has a total of 20 smartphones running Android 10. OnePlus comes in second with just 7 devices. So we can say that HMD Global is doing a stellar job here. One can say that this is due to the Android One program. Well, Xiaomi proves that Android One devices can be a mess.
