Samsung’s Galaxy S3 Was ‘World’s Best-Selling Smartphone’ in Q3 2012

Research firm Strategy Analytics reported that Samsung’s Galaxy S3 had topped Apple’s iPhone 4S as “the world’s best-selling smartphone” in the third quarter of 2012–the first time this has ever happened.

However, the company projects that iPhone 5 sales will top Samsung’s Galaxy S3 in the next quarter and once again dominate the world smartphone market. What do you think?

Check it out: “Samsung’s Galaxy S3 smartphone model shipped 18.0 million units worldwide during the third quarter of 2012. The Galaxy S3 captured an impressive 11 percent share of all smartphones shipped globally and it has become the world’s best-selling smartphone model for the first time ever … Apple shipped an estimated 16.2 million iPhone 4S units worldwide for second place, as consumers temporarily held off purchases in anticipation of a widely expected iPhone 5 upgrade at the end of the quarter.”
