Nokia's Lumia handset has shown poor sales figures when compared to other mobile devices, according to research by consumer price-comparison site Mobiles Please.

However the Lumia phone is the best-selling Windows Phone.

According to The Register, Mobiles Please bases its statistics on over 5,000 sales across its family of sites during November.

The company found that the Nokia Lumia 800 made up 0.17% of devices shipped, while the Samsung Galaxy SII took 16.13% of devices shipped, and the white iPhone 4 took 10.24%.

The black iPhone 4S contributes another 5.5% to Apple's total shipments, and once the white 4S is included along with the 3GS, then iPhones made up 20.78% of the devices sold.

The only other Android device to make the ratings was the HTC Sensation, which took a 2.16% share. The rest of the top nine mobile phone devices shipped were from RIM.

Mobiles Please sells mainly to consumers and has a girls section populated by pink handsets, so any enterprise sales data is not reflected in Mobile Please figures.
