Third month in a row Apple continues to dominate the smartphone sales with their iPhone 5S!
According to Counterpoint’s Monthly Market Pulse report for October 2013, Apple’s iPhone 5S continued to be the bestselling phone worldwide. iPhone 5S sales experienced an upward sales momentum as Apple continued expansive roll-out for its flagship model, leaving their South Korean rival Samsung Galaxy S4 far behind. iPhone 5S is followed by its predecessor iPhone 5, while the colourful iPhone version 5C holds the fourth position.
iPhone 5S managed to remain at the top of the best-seller’s list despite the component shortages causing long waiting periods globally. Before the iPhone 5S and 5C were released, Apple, Samsung, HTC, Nokia, Sony, and Motorola all had smartphones enjoying top-three sales at at least one of U.S. big four carriers.
Although Apple iPhone 5S is number one third month in a row, Samsung has five out of ten best selling smartphones on the list: Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4 Mini and finally Galaxy S3 Mini! This fact certainly does not make them “losers”, yet only confirms their success in the mobile market!
