Galaxy S4 Sales Best iPhone 5 at Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile
Samsung's Galaxy S4 is a hot item in mobile today.
The flagship Samsung smartphone has topped iPhone 5 sales at Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile stores. In fact, AT&T is the only carrier at which the iPhone 5 continues to lead all smartphone sales. But even at AT&T, the Galaxy S4 is now the second best-selling mobile phone.
This information comes from data procured directly from wireless store surveys by researchers at Canaccord Genuity.
“We believe Samsung on the strength of strong Galaxy S4, S III, and Note II sales surpassed Apple to gain top share of the U.S. smartphone market for the first time since the iPhone 5 launch,” explained Michael Walkley, the Canaccord Genuity analyst who conducted the survey.
So what does this information truly reveal? It's tough to say and for obvious reasons.
"That may look like a milestone, but the report should be taken with a grain of salt," says Brian Chen of The New York Times
. "The survey doesn’t include Apple’s retail stores, where many iPhones are sold. And it remains to be seen whether Samsung can beat Apple in sales after Apple releases a new iPhone (or even a cheaper iPhone, as rumors suggest)."
