Samsung dominates UK Christmas gift list

According to uSwitch’s latest Mobile Tracker report, Samsung’s Galaxy Android smartphones took the top three places in the UK’s bestseller charts in the pre-Christmas December sales period. In at No. 1 was the Galaxy S III, with the ageing Galaxy S II close behind at No. 2 and the low-cost Galaxy Ace taking third place. LG’s Nexus 4 scrambled to fourth position, while Apple’s iPhone 4S and 5 only managed to capture the No. 5 and No. 6 spots.

Ernest Doku, telecoms expert at, said: “The enduring presence of the Ace and Galaxy S II – both released back in 2011 – prove that a bargain price point and strong software support can keep classic handsets battling with the heavyweights.”
