The Galaxy S3 is without a doubt the most popular Android handset of the moment and the best device Samsung launched to date. The company has already revealed that it sold over 10 million Galaxy S3 units in the first two months after release, and that number is probably even higher right now.
To further prove the popularity of the Galaxy S3, we fond a new Chitika report which reveals that the Galaxy S3 is set to surpass the original Galaxy S, itself a popular device at its time, when it comes to internet usage. The study has been conducted between August 7-20 following a similar report that analyzed web traffic for all Samsung smartphones through August 6:
As seen in the graph [above], the Galaxy S III has maintained a steady rate of Web usage growth. In the last two weeks, the phone’s usage share grew nearly 26% – from 12.07% of all Samsung mobile phone traffic to 15.17%. After surpassing the Nexus back in June, the S III will soon blow past the Galaxy S to become the second-most popular Galaxy smartphone. The small bump in Galaxy S II usage around August 7th is likely due to the significant online price drop for that phone that day.
While the Galaxy S3 user base is increasing, alongside their Internet browsing habits, the Galaxy S user base is decreasing, which is understandable considering the device was launched back in 2010. Both devices approach, from different directions, the 15% mark of web traffic share among Samsung Galaxy-branded devices, with the Galaxy S2 holding 30% of current traffic.
