Samsung Galaxy S3 vs iPhone 5: No Room For Second Best

By  | 

New information has come out for the Chitika ad network that says that there is a 50/50 split of ownership in the US between the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Apple iPhone 5.

Research was made on the tens of millions of add impressions on mobiles in the US and Canada over the period of February 1st to February 9th.

The data shows that the Apple iPhone 5 has a 51% stake, while the Samsung Galaxy S3 has a stake of 49%. Leaving the usual 1% margin for error, it is a dead heat.

When you look at the overall impressions you can see that the Apple iPhone 5 has 6.6% of traffic, which has to be compared to the 6.3% of the Samsung Galaxy S3. Apple took 4.5% drop with all of their current iPhones in the US and Canada from last year’s results. Samsung on the other hand boosted their presence overall to 20.6% in the same period, which was up from October when they were 17%.

Both Apple and Samsung have been dominating the market with a 62.1% combined share. However that number has dropped to 1% below the findings which were revealed in October. This suggests that some movement has been seen in the North American smartphone market.

Recently it was said that the smartphone webshare of Apple iOS 6 no accounts for around 83% of all traffic in North America. This is very impressive due to the fact that mobile OS was only just released last year in September.
