Samsung Galaxy S3 More Popular Than IPhone

Samsung's latest device the Galaxy S3 is the most popular handset in the UK based on live searches and sales, according to the uSwitch.com Mobile Tracker.

The iPhone 4S replaced the Korean company's previous model - Galaxy S2 - at the top of the chart last month, however, the recent launch of the S3 has pushed Apple's device into second place.

For 11 consecutive months the Galaxy S2 had been at number one, but it is now at third which means that Samsung has four of the top ten places due to the Ace and Note.

HTC's One Series also features in the top ten three times.

The latest Galaxy device has been pre-ordered ten million times and people have been warned that there may be delays on shipments, such is the popularity of the handset.

"As far as early adopters are concerned, the S3 is living up to expectations. But what is interesting this month is the arrival of the HTC One series as a major player," technology expert at uSwitch.com Ernest Doku commented.
