AdDuplex Windows Phone Statistics Report for April 2014

Lumia 630, 635 and 930 were announced at the Build conference this month. Do they show up in our stats? Read on to find out…

Data source

This report is based on data collected from 3886 Windows Phone apps running AdDuplex SDK v.2. The raw data analyzed was collected over the day of April 17th, 2014 (UTC time) unless otherwise stated. We have made every attempt to consolidate different reported phone model names under their canonical retail model names, but it is possible that some of the rare model name variations were not accounted for.

Worldwide stats


This could very well be the first month since Lumia 520 release almost a year ago when it stopped growing. Theoretically, it even shrank a bit, but that could be attributed to statistical inaccuracy, rather than dramatic changes in the market. Same goes for the next 3 models in the Top-10. They swapped places, but they were (and are) pretty close to one another to make any conclusions. Having said that, it is clear that both Lumia 920 is at the end of its lifecycle, soon to be replaced by the new +10 sibling. So it’s quite possible that the remaining inventories are being sold at very competitive prices and that contributed to a sudden return of 920 to the second spot. The only other notable change is that Lumia 610 is finally out of the top and Lumia 925 is finally in.

The second part was a bit different. We asked you to provide your feedback on using AdDuplex – both the benefits it brings and the improvements we could implement based on your comments. Our whole office had a tough time selecting the most informative piece, as this was our main criteria for the second part of monthly challenge.

In the end, we went through an incredible number of reviews you have submitted. We would like to take this opportunity and thank everyone personally who took their time and submitted their ideas.

However, there could only be one winner and here it goes. A brand new NOKIA Lumia 1520 goes to…
