List of models[edit]

I don't think this is a good idea. It has several of the biggest sellers, but is also marked as incomplete. Over the years there have been hundreds of models. If the list is filled without applying a narrow criterion of inclusion, it will dominate the article. I figure it should be either spun off to its own list article, or simply killed.

I agree, there's a few hundred phones that could go here. If I had the time and energy, I'd rename it, "top 10 bestselling smartphones today," gather the intel to list the top 10 smartphones in order of sales, and call it done. I'd also like to see them grouped by brand/significant features, but that's even trickier. Mwenechanga (talk) 23:24, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Comment is sparse, growth is fairly slow, and time is short for me today, so I shall wait awhile unless someone else takes the bull by the horns. We have lists of similar items such as tablets, and they indeed have grown large. Conscientious updating seems a waste of time, as that would be principally for shopping and Wikipedia will never match the average shopping site for timeliness or the trade news for comprehensiveness.

False picture[edit]

That picture on the top of the page says that it's Galaxy Note 4 in the photo. But it's not, it's probably Galaxy Note Original. Fix that please :) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.248.145.131 (talk) 19:35, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
