Galaxy S3 sales represented 18% of the total handset sales in UK during launch week

by 2 years ago

So far, we’ve only had all Android manufacturers combined beat Apple when it comes to smartphone sales. They do it by a significant number every quarter (around twice the number of iPhone sales or so), but it’s still all of them together against Apple. However, with every iteration of the Galaxy S series, Samsung gets closer and closer to selling as many Galaxy S devices as Apple is selling iPhones.
