-      I guess there is no surprise for anyone that iPhone 4/4S is 2011’s top selling device according to Krusell’s list for 2011. The iPhone is a sensitive smartphone with a very high attachment rate on cases, says Ulf Sandberg Managing Director at Krusell. In a way, it is more fascinating to see other models on our top seller list, such as Samsung’s Xcover which really is a device made for a rougher treatment. Still consumers prefer to buy a case, even if the phone doesn’t need protection as much as the user needs a convenient usage of the device in their daily life.
