Samsung Galaxy S3 Recommended By UK Retailers More Than The iPhone 5

Feb 1st, 2013 | By phoneslimited | Category: Telecommunications

According to a recent survey carried out by the Informa Telecoms, the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 models are being more highly recommended by staff in a number of high profile high street retailers in the UK, ahead of their Apple iPhone 5 rival.

The survey, which is detailed over at uSwitch saw researchers posing as a mystery shoppers in retailers such as PC World, John Lewis, Phones 4U and Carphone Warehouse. The survey was carried out in order to determine which devices were the most highly recommended by staff, and which handsets had the most widespread point of sale advertising.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 were among the most widely recommended smartphone models by staff in these retailers. On the other hand, the Apple iPhone 5 was only recommended in two of the eight retailers visited, which were Phones 4U and Three.

Given the popularity of Samsung’s devices like the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2, it hardly comes as a surprise that staff were quick to recommend these devices to the researchers. Of course, the Samsung Galaxy S3 in particular continues to be a bestseller in the UK, considerably outselling the Apple iPhone 5 and virtually every other rival handset. While the survey does point out that staff may have recommended these devices in an attempt to earn higher commissions, the fact that these handsets have gained such widespread critical acclaim means that many of the staff will have simply been voicing their opinions by recommending the handsets.

Of course, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is widely rumoured to be launched in coming weeks, and with an Apple iPhone 5S also reportedly in the pipeline it looks like the smartphone market will be shaken up once again in the near future. Given the track record of the Galaxy S3 though, the latest edition will surely become yet another bestseller, so Apple will certainly have its work cut out if it is to compete with its new iPhone 5S.
