That's just a single Q4 numbers. SIII is still #1 phone in the Universe in 2012, and again it will repeat the same feat in 2013.

I also want to be a Samsung/Android commenter/blogger, like some peeps here. I would really love scanning for articles in GSM Arena about Apple and bash them. Anyone have any idea how much the pay is?

OMG!... This is just another white lies from Apple. I'm pretty much sure that behind this funny statistic is no other than Apple. They just trying to mislead us all with a lie to cover up the big truth that Apple is stumbling and falling because since Steve Jobs die, innovation at Apple goes along too.... They're Stock market value are falling day by day from a super sky rocket high before... Pity isn't¿

I was getting sick of s3 users trolling the iphone5 page. They can't even out sell the 4's it's funny. These cocky s3 users can suck on it, for all I care. Finally something to put them in their place.

ahah omg.. im no fan of apple or the iphone, but i HATE the attitude of SG3 users... i see them bashing apple all the time on this site.. and i must say sg3 is a piece of junk! i've used that thing, so many bugs, freezing, lagging, had to pull the battery out a few times while starting games, had it go white screen on me and just refused to even power down.

let see you talk now SG3 fanboys!... o yea.. not to mention, SG3 is the most Hideously UGLY phone on the face of this earth. i truely mean that from the bottom of my heart... it competes with the record setting ugly phone, the SG2!

Fandroids huh, thats clever putting an F at the beginning of Android, have you checked what that makes you apple fans?
Have a good one Fapple

What is unbeliavable is the 4S actually sold last q more than q3. So over year old model keep gaining sells, apple is only one who can do that! It just tells how powerful even year old models are, people can buy them and get great product.

The iphone 4s outsells the galaxy s3. Muhahha

Apple is simply the best. Admit it fandroids.

You know what's so great about this news? The iphone 5 and the 4s are way more expensive than the galaxy s3.
