Samsung Galaxy S 2 beats iPhone 4 in handset charts

Samsung Galaxy S 2 retains its crown as the UK's most popular smartphone, outselling all of its competitors including the Apple iPhone 4 and the HTC series of handsets

New figures released by the uSwitch Mobile Tracker have revealed that the Samsung Galaxy S 2 has outsold the iPhone 4 and a flurry of HTC handsets to become the UK’s highest selling handset for the third consecutive month.

With Samsung confirming the Galaxy S II sold more than 5 million units in its opening 85 days the dual-core smartphone has maintained its position as the UK’s most popular handset outselling the iPhone 4 into second position and eclipsing five separate HTC handsets that helped make up the UK’s top 10 handsets.

“The Samsung Galaxy S II deservedly remains on top for yet another month,” technology expert at uSwitch.com Ernest Doku said. He added: “The Korean manufacturer also celebrates further success with two more models in the Mobile Tracker’s top 10.”

Whilst the original Samsung Galaxy S rose three places to become the UK’s third most popular handset in June, the Samsung Galaxy Ace climbed five places ninth in the charts. The BlackBerry Curve 8520 was RIM’s sole representative in the top 10 lining up in fifth.

Last week Samsung confirmed the existence of the Samsung Galaxy S II White with the lighter toned handset to land on September 1st sporting the same 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display and 8-megapixel camera as its black hued sibling.
