Samsung Galaxy S III Moves 10 Million Handsets

Posted: Updated:

According to our sister site, All Things D, Samsung has hit the 10 million units sold mark in only two months with its Galaxy S III handset. That's approximately 190,000 sold a day! Definitely an impressive feat considering the phone's predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S II took five months to hit that mark.

I can say first hand, that I understand why. After having the phone for only a short time, the device's fit and finish are among the best yet for Samsung and the version of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich, running on the S III is the most user friendly iteration yet (aside from Jellybean, which is the most current version but not in the hands of most users yet). Is it any wonder that Apple and Samsung are currently locked in heated patent wars around the world where Apple is trying to block the sales of Samsung device under the auspices of patent infringement. That isn't to say that some of Sammy's devices don't look like they've been, ahem, "influenced" by Cupertino's eye for industrial design aesthetics but in this era of abbreviated R&D cycles, a lot of what's floating around the market looks to have borrowed from the other guy. Heck, Samsung has been the one supplying the displays on iPhones!

Make sure you check back here to the myFOX Tech section as we'll have a comparison coming up shortly for those of you whose contracts are coming up soon and are looking at having to decide between one of HTC's One series devices and the Galaxy S III.
