Colombo, Sri Lanka: Last year was a fantastic year for almost all the brands in the mobile phone industry. There were numerous flagship devices where the features were not expected by most consumers. In Sri Lanka many devices released from many renowned brands. Yet, there was no formal competition evaluating them until a new poll was conducted by Android Wedakarayo (a Sri Lankan tech/ mobile website) hosted on their official website – www.androidwedakarayo.com. OPPO emerged as the winner of the title “The Most Popular Smartphone Brand of the Year 2018 – In Sri Lanka”.

Created with the polling system from Pinpoll, the public was allowed to vote from a list of all the Smartphone brands available in Sri Lanka. Information about the poll was communicated via social media, resulting in the participation of many the young tech enthusiasts. Multiple votes by a single person were disabled whilst human image verification was enabled to verify the authenticity of the voters. The poll was active for one week and ended on 25th December 2018. Subsequently the Poll results were shared to the public. (Results: http://www.androidwedakarayo.com/most-popular-brand-2018/)

“OPPO is undoubtedly the go-to brand amongst Sri Lanka’s young demographic. The brand topped our list in the polls for the most popular smartphone brand of the year 2018. We believe that the brand has been effectively made an emotional connection with Sri Lanka’s youth,” commented Gevindu Aloka from the Android Wedakarayo team.
