AdDuplex has released its report for the month of April showcasing statistics of the Windows mobile platform. What's notable in the latest findings is how the Lumia 535 has become the most popular Windows-based smartphone. As well as the switch of most popular phone, Windows 10 Mobile continues to be on the rise, almost hitting 10% of all surveyed devices.
Contrary to growth of Microsoft's latest version of its mobile OS, Windows Phone 8.1 experienced a sharp decline but maintains a comfortable 79% hold of the market. An interesting tidbit is how Windows Phone 7.x and 8.0 still appear in the charts at 4.2% and 7.5%, respectively. Back to phones and we're sad to see the Lumia 520 dethroned by the Lumia 535 by losing 0.8% of its share of the Windows Phone pie.
Looking at the UK, we can see that the country is the only one in this month's report to feature a Windows 10 Mobile handset in the top 10. The Lumia 550 has entered the chart at number 7 with 5.4% of the market.
