For a while, Apple-investor bond is not actually going well and that we can judge by the Foxconn planning of freezing recruitment in China, affecting the demand for iPhone 5. Investors have been onto torturing Apple again by punishing its stocks again. But still lucky for Apple, because according to a latest survey of the smartphone, both iPhone 5 along with iPhone 4S have outsold Samsung’s Galaxy release, S III, in the holiday quarter of 2012. In plain and simple words, iPhone 5 has been the world’s bestselling smartphone. This survey was conducted by Strategy Analytics.
On top of all, the thing that shocked everyone was the success of the 16 month old phone of Apple that is called iPhone 4S. The success story behind this one is similar to iPhone 5. This smartphone overtook the flagship device of Samsung too. If we put this story in numbers then we can say that the number of Apple’s iPhone 5 sold was 27.4 million, whereas iPhone 4S was 17.4 million. On the other hand, units of Galaxy S III sold were 15.4 million (this figure does not include any other Samsung’s related smartphone sales).
As per the analysis of Strategy Analytics, it is the first time that Apple has been on top among smartphones with 13 percent of the total market share. The researchers have reported that the success key in this matter was the rich touchscreen design and the generous subsidy offers on the iPhone 5 across the world. According to the report, Samsung’s flagship device, Galaxy S III, was the third best smartphone globally.
Last year, Samsung unveiled its launch in May 2012, whereas Apple did it in September 2012. And once again, Samsung will be showcasing S III’s successor before Apple. Maybe this is the main trick folded up in Apple’s sleeves. It waits for the right time before making its move in the market.
iPhone 5 also left Galaxy S3 behind in web traffic stats.
Let us see how this all goes on in the future.
