According to Strategy Analytics, the Samsung Galaxy S3 the past quarter worldwide best-selling smart phone. Indeed, better than the famous iPhone.
That the Samsung Galaxy S3 a clattering success, it was already clear. But tradition is Apple’s flagship iPhone device where the most sold – until the last quarter so. Although Apple’s iPhone 4S is still in great numbers over the counter went – 16.2 million units in three months – were of Galax S3 in the same period no less than 18 million sold.
All in all, this is a remarkable achievement by Samsung, a company that actually employs a strategy whereby for every taste and purse another type of smart phone on the market.

In other words, Samsung actually achieves huge sales numbers by its broad product portfolio, and not to a specific extension. The Galaxy S3 appears to be the exception that proves the rule or will confirm.
It is expected that the iPhone 5 will take the lead back over the Galaxy S3 in the last quarter of the year – the first full quarter that the iPhone 5 in the shops. However, a brief tour of several stores, teaches us that the Galaxy S3 even now many sales-top-5 lists claims.
