Samsung-Vs-Apple-1 

As per the report, Samsung shipped about 18 million units of the Galaxy S III while Apple shipped 16.2 million units of its iPhone 4S.


This enabled the S III to capture an impressive 10.7 percent share of all the smartphones shipped worldwide to become the best-selling smartphone, while Apple’s iPhone 4S grabbed 9.7 percent share worldwide.
 
The reasons for Galaxy S III beating the Apple iPhone 4S can be attributed to the hype that was surrounding the S III and the aggressive publicity that Sammy went ahead with. Also many Apple lovers either delayed their purchases waiting for the iPhone 5 to launch or jumped over to another smartphone.
 
But as we know, the top spot held by the Galaxy S III will be short-lived as Apple has released its iPhone 5 in more markets and the 4-inch smartphone is fast selling. Also the holiday season is approaching soon, so the numbers are bound to skyrocket.
