Samsung Number 1
For the second month going Samsung’s Galaxy S II has beaten the formerly indomitable iPhone 4 for the top spot on the UK charts. Samsung’s Galaxy S II handset launched earlier this year boasting a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED display, with a 8 megapixel camera with 1080p Full HD video recording capabilities, 1GB of RAM and a minimalist design. The combination of which have given Apple it’s first true competitor for the hearts and minds of the UK consumer.
According to a survey conducted by uSwitch the Galaxy is Britain’s most popular smartphone. “The powerful and flexible Samsung Galaxy S II remains on top as networks and retailers continue to offer a number of strong mobile deals,” announced Ernest Doku, technology expert at uSwitch. However Samsung are advised not to be content with recent victories, “Samsung can’t rest on its laurels though. The influx of feature-rich phones like the HTC EVO 3D and LG Optimus 3D, both introducing a unique glasses-free 3D viewing experience, could seriously shake things up this summer. We’re also expecting a number of new BlackBerry handsets and of course can’t ignore the enduring rumours of a fifth model of Apple’s iPhone on the horizon.”
HTC was also shown to be performing strongly with five of their models occupying the remainder of the top ten. The Sensation should be paid particular notice as it took bronze by being the third most popular handset among the British public.
