In spite of the flawed mapping software, the iPhone 5 does not really stop to pull customers towards its sleek and stylish design. The fact that Apple managed to sell over five million devices during the first week of its launch stands witness to this fact.
And now as per a latest report by Chitika, mobile ad firm, Apple’s latest sixth-gen iPhone 5 has even surpassed the Web traffic, outdoing its rivals’ Samsung Galaxy S III in less than 18 days.
The findings by the firm Chitika were based on millions of mobile ad impressions from both the devices across the US and Canada, starting Oct. 3rd till 9th.
By Oct. 9th, the firm noted that about 56 percent of impressions were from Apple’s iPhone 5 and 44 percent from the Galaxy S III.
According to Chitika it is the record-breaking sales numbers and the devices’ 4G browsing speeds of iPhone 5 that made way to this growth. However, the news was not really good for the Korean manufacturer, who puts its Galaxy device in direct competition to the Apple’s smartphone.
The report concluded with the fact that iPhone 5 remains the most active smartphone for the users of mobile Web.
However, many analytics company such as Localytics, a mobile app analytics and marketing firm believes that the patent trial between Samsung and Apple has in turn helped boost up Samsung Galaxy’s sales. The firm reported that Galaxy S III sales surged 9 percent each week since Aug. 1.
Interestingly, Samsung also managed to get a clean chit on the sale of its Galaxy Nexus device recently, which the Cupertino Calif.-based firm had asked the US court to ban.
