Did you sell the Samsung Galaxy S3 over the past quarter iPhone 4S?

Until the arrival of new handsets this fall, the two smartphones that enjoyed greater health and sales among techies were the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the iPhone 4 from Apple.

Today we ask whether the star of the Korean smartphone really won in device sales apple company. Everything is because this week we have seen a lot of blog pointed to a press release that claimed so. According to Strategy Analytics, the Galaxy S3 became during the third quarter of 2012 in the world's best selling smartphone.

ventas galaxy 3 iphone 4s ¿Vendió más el Samsung Galaxy S3 que el iPhone 4S el pasado trimestre?

This position was held until now by the iPhone 4S, but if we access the original press release that we will realize the analyst really did not say what the news include:

The Samsung Galaxy S3 stores sent 18 million units during the third quarter of 2012, taking 11 percent of the market of smartphones shipped worldwide. This has become the best selling smartphone for the first time in history. For its part, Apple sent to stores 16.2 million units of the iPhone 4S, grabbing second place in this ranking.

The problem is that not acaran what "units shipped" and take them as "units sold". This means that sellers are being counted as those smartphones that are exposed in stores unsold on shelves or in warehouses after a return.

Moreover, since Samsung does not issue its quarterly sales figures, that "18 million" sounds too suspicious to break the 30 million sales from May to October between five and multiply by three.

If the Galaxy S3 had won the iPhone 4S in sales, it would be wise to think that the Korean company would have announced to investors, media and consumers with fanfare. What do you think?
