Samsung dominates UK Christmas gift list
Jan 7, 2013
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 uSwitch.com, 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.”
