Move over, the iPhone from Apple – you have a new contender, and it comes in the form of the recently introduced Samsung Galaxy S3, where it is the most popular smartphone in the UK at the moment. Of course, how one arrives at such a conclusion varies, depending on which side of the fence you sit on. The whole idea of the Samsung Galaxy S3 being the most popular UK model was derived from live searches and sales, at least according to the uSwitch.com Mobile Tracker. It is interesting to note that the iPhone 4S’ reign as top dog lasted only one month, pushing aside the Galaxy S2, only to have the Samsung Galaxy S3 knock the iPhone 4S off its perch with its debut.
HTC’s One Series of smartphones now boast three appearances in the top ten, while Sony has but one device – their flagship Xperia S. As for the Samsung Galaxy S3’s predecessor, the Galaxy S2, it has remained at the number 1 position for 11 months straight, talk about being a hot device that has certainly made waves! What do you think of the Galaxy S3 – will it be able to maintain its top position when the next generation iPhone arrives?
