Samsung Galaxy S3 Becomes T-Mobile's Best Selling Device

T-Mobile, the fourth largest carrier in the U.S., has revealed that the Samsung Galaxy S3 has become the carrier’s best selling device in its history.

The smartphone has set several records since its launch five months ago internationally (four months ago in the U.S.). During its first 100 days of sale, the Samsung Galaxy S3 sold more than 20 million units globally, subsequently becoming one of the best selling Android smartphone in history. Samsung, though, expects the device to sell a further ten million units before 2013 arrives.

As for Apple's legal victory against Samsung which saw the latter being ordered to pay over $1 billion in damages, that hasn't exactly resulted in the sales for the Galaxy S3 slowing down. If anything, it actually spearheaded the smartphone's sales, with the device experiencing a 16 percent increase in demand since August. Its commercial performance has resulted in Samsung predicting record profit of $7.3 billion during the third quarter.

    robochumpDefies logic. If Samsung is selling well enough cant we start saying SamSheep?!?

    Sheep are people who have undying brand loyalty. People purchase the iPhone specifically because it is made by Apple. People (typically) buy the S3 because it is simply a good phone. If someone else were to make a better phone, or if the S4 is a flop, then the people who are currently enjoying the S3 would drop samsung very quickly.

    Normal people do not tolerate flops like the iPhone 4 or 5, or unfinished products like Siri or the new maps program. Don't mistake what I am trying to say, the 4s even had me looking at an iPhone for a bit as it fixed some issues, and added features that made the phone competitive, I am not anti-apple or anything. I just don't see why people like their products with as much loyalty as their followers have.

    I mean, the maker of a product is not your friend. They do not need to be defended at every turn for a product's shortcomings, or pretend like each and every product is perfect like many (not all) iSheep seem to believe. You should get the product you want, with the features you need, for a reasonable price. iProducts do achieve this sometimes, but in general most people buy iProducts because they are trendy, not because they want what the product can do.
