If you bought a Galaxy S3 you’ll have contributed the phenomenal success of their latest smartphone release. Both of its predecessors; the Galaxy S and the Samsung Galaxy S2 reached fantastic sales levels but it appears that sales of the S3 have outpaced their previous sales records with market analysts forecasting that after just two months since its global launch, sales will reach the amazing milestone of 10 million in July. This will come as no surprise if the figures include the impressive 9 million pre-orders.
The launch of the Galaxy S3 with its quad-core processor and 4.8-inch AMOLED HD screen was much awaited and even though some were disappointed that the phone hadn’t offered more, it has proved a worthy contender in the contest for best smartphone up against the iPhone 4S.
For anyone, still considering their smartphone options, the Samsung Galaxy S3 review is great, so much so that it may well become difficult to get hold of as Samsung find themselves struggling to source the S4 processor resulting in Sprint releasing the following statement on its website: “Due to overwhelming demand for the Galaxy S III worldwide, Samsung has informed us they will not be able to deliver enough inventory of Galaxy S III for Sprint to begin selling the device on June 21.”
The head of Samsung’s telecommunications business, Shin also responded with the following statement: “We’re getting far better reviews on S III than we did with its predecessors globally … and supply simply can’t meet soaring demand. We’ve sent executives and staff to almost all our (component) suppliers to ensure a smooth offering and hopefully things will get better from next week.”
Samsung have become widely respected for developing smartphones to rival their strongest competitor Apple and it is this innovation that helped Samsung overtake Nokia for its overall phone and smartphone sales. The Samsung phones are starting to have a strong brand following which should hopefully see it maintain its growing position against Apple, even with the much awaited launch of the iPhone 5 due in the autumn.
So if you think you’d like to own a Samsung Galaxy S3 but moneys in short supply; why not raise cash for phones you no longer use by checking the value you’d receive for your phone from Mobile recycling companies. It may be that you’ll be able to buy a new smartphone sooner than you thought.
