Apple iPhone 5     Apple iPhone 4S     Samsung Galaxy S3

Figures out recently from Strategy Analytics show that Apple’s iPhone 5 now leads the way as the world’s best-selling smartphone. The full 1-2-3 in Q4 2012 was
1. Apple iPhone 5 27.4 million units (12.6%)
2. Apple iPhone 4S 17.4 million units (8%)
3. Samsung Galaxy S3 15.4 million units (7.1%)

Samsung’s Galaxy S3 had been leading the way up until Q4, so Samsung will now be keener than ever to release their rumoured Galaxy S4 sooner rather than later.
