Whilst Apple may have made grounds against Samsung in the U.S., here in the U.K. the South Korean manufacturer remains firmly on top, holding the top three places of the leading ten selling smartphones.
Not surprisingly the Samsung Galaxy S3 is still number one, a position it has held for many months. In second place comes the Samsung Galaxy Ace, with the Galaxy S2 taking third, on the back of some very strong offers.
So Samsung go from strength to strength, but the appeal of the iPhone appears to be on the wane, with the iPhone 5 failing to even make the top five. It was just a few months ago that the iPhone 5 was third in the list, so the drop has been significant.
The other falling iOS star is the iPhone 4S, which in October was the second best selling device in the U.K. And even in December it still managed to make the top five.
