Samsung Galaxy S II tops Apple iPhone 4 in UK charts
The Samsung Galaxy S II has remained the UK's most popular smartphone for a second month once again topping Apple's iPhone 4
Samsung’s Galaxy S II handset has once again topped Apple’s iPhone 4 device to become the UK’s highest selling smartphone as Google’s Android OS continues to dominate the market.
Having beaten out the Apple iPhone 4 to become the UK’s most popular handset last month, Samsung’s 1.2GHz dual-core powerhouse has continued to top the smartphone market a survey carried out by uSwitch has revealed.
With Apple’s iPhone 4 remaining in second place, HTC’s own 1.2GHz dual-core handset, the HTC Sensation, has climbed into the hearts of the UK public rising to the third most adopted device of June with HTC continuing its dominance taking five of the remaining seven top 10 spots.
“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.
“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.”
Samsung’s Galaxy S II handset launched earlier this year with a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display joining an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p Full HD video recording capabilities, 1GB of RAM and a minimalist form factor.
