Samsung Trails IPhone In UK

Despite the fact that Samsung was recently revealed as the world's largest mobile phone operator, the Korean firm is still trailing behind Apple in the UK.

According to ComScore, Samsung still has some way to go in the UK smartphone market as figures put them behind Apple's iPhone.

New data released by the company said that despite a 29 per cent share of smartphone sales in the first quarter of 2012 in the world, the iPhone had a better three months in the UK.

Apple's flagship device ended March with 26 per cent of all current smartphone users in the country.

A total of 27.2 million people in the UK have a smartphone, which represents 55 per cent of the total mobile audience, up from 39 per cent in March 2011.

Samsung is the fourth largest smartphone provider with 4.4 million handsets in use, which represents 16.2 per cent. This figure has risen markedly from 1.3 million at the end of March last year.
