Samsung Galaxy S III has gained good sales and response from the consumers around the world. The phone is appreciated for various hardware and application capabilities. It is also been seen as the role model for any upcoming high-end device (even for Apple iPhone 5). Estimations are that this month Samsung would ship around 10mn units to the carriers worldwide.
Samsung Galaxy S III’s closest competitor is HTC One X. With Apple waiting for fall to launch iOS and Apple iPhone 5, we have missed the competition that both iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S III would have launched together. The craze and hype would have been altogether at different par.
