  • Huawei, Samsung, Oppo, Vivo and Xiaomi are most popular among Telenor subscribers

As the New Year kicks in, Telenor Myanmar released its analysis on the most popular mobile handsets in 2017 among its subscribers in Myanmar.

The results based on the recent year-end analysis show that Huawei takes the lead as the most popular mobile handset brand among Telenor customers possessing 24 percent of over 19 million subscribers last year.

Following Huawei, Samsung stands second with 13 percent being followed by Oppo, Vivo and Xiaomi respectively. Apple dropped out of the top five since only one percent of the subscribers throughout Myanmar use its products to enjoy Telenor voice and data services.

“Availability of affordable smartphones in recent years has contributed Myanmar to becoming a mobile first market, and currently about 80% of our customers are smartphone users. As we kept improving our mobile network coverage throughout the country expanding to more remote and rural areas we can expect continued popularity of affordable smartphones this year in Myanmar as well,” said Joslin Myrthong, Chief Marketing Officer in Telenor Myanmar.

Joslin adds, “Almost everyone in Myanmar now is connected and our current focus is to provide the best customer experience with superior services and simple and convenient customer journeys. This analysis helps us to understand more about our customers’ preferences and supports us to be able to provide the best services to them. We will continue optimising our network and improving our services for Telenor subscribers to keep on enjoying the best customer experience.”

Telenor has established the country’s broadest 4G network delivering consistent and improved 4G data experience to Telenor customers in more than 50 top cities across the country. In addition, Telenor is providing the best 3G network quality in Myanmar according to the tests conducted by Open Signal, the world’s largest crowdsourcing services for network quality.
