Apple’s iPhone 5 Takes The Top Spot From Samsung’s Galaxy S3
- February 20, 2013
According to a recent report by Strategy Analytics, Apple’s iPhone 5 is the best selling smartphone Worldwide on the fourth quarter of 2012. The iPhone 4S is apparently in second place with the Galaxy S3 in third place. The iPhone 5 took 13% of the global smartphone market in Q4, and the iPhone 4S apparently took 8% of the global smartphone market.
"Apple’s iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S together accounted for 1 in 5 of all smartphones shipped worldwide in Q4 2012. This was an impressive performance, given the iPhone portfolio’s premium pricing. We estimate Samsung’s Galaxy S3 was the world’s third best-selling smartphone model and it shipped 15.4 million units globally, capturing 7 percent share in the fourth quarter of 2012. Samsung’s Galaxy S3 has long proven wildly popular with consumers and operators across North America, Europe and Asia. However, global demand for the Galaxy S3 appears to have peaked and Samsung will surely be keen to introduce its rumored Galaxy S4 upgrade in the coming weeks to fight back against Apple’s popular iPhone range." In Q3 2012, the Samsung Galaxy S3 was in the top spot with a 10.4% share of the market, this dropped to 7.3% in Q4.
