The iPhone 4S has held the title of being the bestselling smartphone in the US ever since it was released into the world.
Samsung Galaxy S3 beats iPhone 4S sales in US; iPhone 5 just around the corner
Now Apple has seen this title slip away from them just days before they are set to release their latest generation iPhone 5 and in its place is the Samsung Galaxy S3. Samsung took the title when it moved into first place on Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon. The iPhone 4S still remains top however at AT&T.
Strangely enough Apple may have helped put the Samsung Galaxy S3 ahead of their own iPhone 4S as when Apple won the court case over Samsung and Apple decided they would try to add the S3 to the devices they wanted to ban, sales of the Galaxy S3 shot up.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 may not retain its crown for long though as Apple are set to reveal the iPhone 5 on 12th September and expect to sell around 10 million units before the end of the month. With the iPhone 5 now just around the corner, it is also no surprise that the 4S isn’t selling well anymore.
