UK's most popular smartphone is officially Samsung Galaxy S3 for yet another month this year. This is actually the seventh month since no one has managed to take its crown. These are the results obtained by uSwitch and they compiled by counting live searches, pre-orders and postpaid sales. The most curious thing here is the fact that the newly launched iPhone 5 is only taking the third place here. And gues who's the device that beat it? It's the older model, the iPhone 4S. Because of the beneficial contract offers for the older model, and probably because the iPhone 5 is not offering so much extra, people have been more interested in buying the iPhone 4S. Taking a relaxing fourth place is the Galaxy S2, that after one year is still making its way in many people's pockets. Also the recently launched Nexus 4 takes the fifth place. That's not so surprising knowing that each time Google announces a new round of sales, the device gets out of stock the next day. In top 10 there are other Samsung devices running the well known Android OS, the Galaxy Note 2 and the Galaxy Ace and Ace II. For now Samsung Galaxy S3 managed to keep itself in the top, whether it's because of the good offers or because it's simply a very good device it doesn't matter. The question that remains is whether the Galaxy S3 will manage to keep the first place after the Christmas holidays. Do you own a Galaxy S3 or are you going to buy one as soon as you get a good deal?
