Samsung declares "we are ahead of Apple"

Speaking exclusively to T3 having claimed the title of Phone of the Year at the T3 Gadget Awards 2011, Samsung has claimed it is now "ahead of Apple" in the mobile market

Following its success at the T3 Gadget Awards 2011 Samsung has told T3 it no longer sees itself in the same light as Apple after the Cupertino company unveiled the little improved iPhone 4S.

Speaking exclusively to T3, Samsung UK’s Sales Director Andrew Glass declared “I think we are ahead of Apple, certainly we are number one in the UK.” He added: “I think the Apple story is really interesting but I don’t still see them in the same light [as Samsung].”

Collecting the T3 Gadget Awards 2011 Phone of the Year title for the Android behemoth that is the Samsung Galaxy S II, Glass added: “We are number one in the UK, we are the number one handset manufacturer and we’ve recently overtaken Apple in smartphones also.”

Samsung Galaxy S II Specs

A true leader in the mobile market the Samsung Galaxy S II combines impeccable design with high-end functionality packing a powerful 1.2GHz dual-core processor in alongside 1GB of RAM and Google’s Android 2.3 Gingerbread mobile operating system.
