It took just 5 weeks. The only one ahead of it? The iPhone 4.
By the way, numbers three and four? The iPhone 3G and the iPhone 3GS.
One Android phone did manage to beat the original iPhone though — the HTC EVO 4G, places a distant fifth. Let’s remember that the original iPhone is over 4 years old.
Wait, actually, looking at the data, Flickr isn’t even counting the original iPhone anymore. Maybe that’s because there are not a lot of pictures, but maybe not.
Regardless, the EVO did beat the iPod touch. I think. It’s not clear if they count that in the “smartphone” category.
It also boasts a 0.7 megapixel camera. Tough competition.
The most popular camera overall across all of Flickr? Still the iPhone 4. Soon to be dethroned by the iPhone 4S, no doubt.
Let’s also remember that the Flickr numbers don’t include Instagram photos because those are stripped of the metadata by iOS. In other words, the iPhone isn’t just beating every other smartphone out there when it comes to picture taking, it’s likely destroying them. And probably most point & shoots as well.
