uSwitch: iPhone 4S finally 'more popular' than Samsung Galaxy S II

uSwitch: iPhone 4S finally 'more popular' than Samsung Galaxy S IIYou know uSwitch’s Mobile Tracker thingy? The one that takes into account sales and search volumes across various comparison sites in order to compile a chart of the most popular phones? Well now you do.

The latest update from uSwitch reveals that the iPhone 4S has finally dethroned the ludcicrously popular Samsung Galaxy S II. Interesting.

The Samsung Galaxy S II enjoyed an impressive 11 straight months at the top of the uSwitch chart, and only now, six months after release, has the iPhone 4S grabbed the top spot.

The spanking new HTC One X is currently riding high in third, closely followed the Samsung Galaxy Note.

Ernest Doku, uSwitch’s technology expert, sobbed: “After ruling the roost for 11 consecutive months, it will be a bitter blow for Samsung that they couldn’t maintain the number-one spot for an entire year.

“The Galaxy S 2 has been a worthy and enduring bestseller, significantly undercutting the iPhone on pay monthly whilst providing a close parity of features, but official word surrounding an imminent sequel has really slowed sales this month."

Speaking of a sequel (set to be unveiled later today), Ernest reckons the iPhone 4S’s reign might be short lived. “If the current buzz is anything to go by, the next Samsung Galaxy phone could really make a strong impact on the May charts, from pre-order interest alone.

"This is without a doubt the most excited we’ve ever seen consumers over a non-Apple device.”

Here’s the current Top 10 in full:

  • 1. iPhone 4S
  • 2. Samsung Galaxy S II
  • 3. HTC One X
  • 4. Samsung Galaxy Note
  • 5. Samsung Galaxy Ace
  • 6. HTC One S
  • 7. Sony Xperia S
  • 8. iPhone 4
  • 9. HTC Wildfire S
  • 10. Sony Xperia Arc S

Yeah I'd never heard of it. Well not the iphone of course.
Seems really odd timing but guess lots are looking to the next galaxy so s2 drops in interest levels.

It surprising ordinary slightly over-priced low-end phones like the Ace and Wildfire still do so well these days... :|

If release time between Galaxy S2 and S3 is less than 12 month, there is no way S2 will hold out for more a year. Android users moved on to next best thing - One X.
Apple users, on the other hand, have no-where to go besides iPhone 4S.
