If statistics related to web traffic can predict just how well a product is expected to perform, we’d have to say that the iPhone 5 could be a more popular phone than the Galaxy S3. According to mobile ad firm, Chitika, an analysis of web traffic in US and Canada reveals a slight edge to the Apple iPhone 5, where 56% of impressions came from this phone, while the Galaxy S3 cornered 44% of the share.
What’s even more impressive about this data is that the iPhone 5 just launched a few weeks back, while the Galaxy S3 has been around for a few months now. It definitely seems like Apple’s managed to break all of its previous records in sales of the latest iPhone, and with 4G connectivity options being the norm of the day, it’s no surprise that owners of iPhone 5 are increasingly spending more time on the web.
This, however, is not good news to Apple’s archrival, Samsung, which has been directly pitting the Galaxy S3 as the iPhone’s competitor. Will Samsung manage to regain lost ground and overtake the iPhone 5 in this rat race? Guess we’ll just have to wait and see if the Galaxy S3 Mini’s launch has helped Samsung with this.
