This may be a surprising news, but when it comes to Samsung Galaxy S3 vs iPhone 5, iPhone 4S competition, Galaxy S3 rules the UK smart-phone market. To be true iPhone 5 is only good enough to occupy seventh spot in terms of smart-phone sales

Samsung seems to be ruling not just Asian smart-phone market, but European and North American markets as well. Samsung’s Galaxy S3 that is around nine months old is still ruling the smart-phone market in United Kingdom. To be true, it has ruled the smart-phone market since its launch and has grabbed the top rank for nine months in a row. I am sure, only its next version will be able to dislodge it when it is launched in the market in the next few months.

To be true, Samsung’s Galaxy S3 beats Cupertino based Apple handsets including iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S by a wide margin. A report in the uSwitch says while Samsung Galaxy S III rules the smart-phone space in the UK, other Samsung handset are the next two most popular handsets in the country.

To be true, in popularity, Galaxy S3 is not followed by iPhone 5 or iPhone 4S, but it is followed by other Samsung handsets. The third spot is occupied by the previous flagship handset of the Korean tech giant Galaxy S2 while the second spot is occupied by another handset of the company Galaxy Ace. This must be a huge disappointment for Cupertino based company that has been almost forced out of the top rank by Korean tech giant. Two handsets from Finnish tech giants occupied the fourth and fifth spot and the honour went to Symbian-based handsets, the 100 and C2-01. On the other hand Google’s latest handset Nexus 4 fell from fourth position to sixth position, mainly due to the supply constraints, because of the fact that the search giant is unable to supply enough handsets to the market.

On the other hand, Cupertino based tech giant Apple’s top selling handset that the company has sold in tens of millions, for UK smart-phone lovers it was fit to occupy only the seventh spot following Galaxy S3, Galaxy Ace, Galaxy S2, Nokia 100, Nokia C2-01 and Google Nexus 4. Apple’s last flagship handset iPhone 4S was good enough only to occupy the tenth spot in terms of sales in United Kingdom.
