iPhone 5 beats the Galaxy S III in terms of web browsing usage

iPhone 5 beats the Galaxy S III in terms of web browsing usage
It's been only three weeks on the market, but the iPhone 5 has already surpassed the Galaxy S III in terms of generated web traffic. To put things in to perspective, the GS III has been on the market for about 3 months now.

According to a report by Chitika, the iPhone 5 now accounts for no less than 56% of all web traffic generated by the iPhone 5 and GS III. The Galaxy S III currently has 44% of the pie, but its share is expected to decrease from now on.

Still, this research reminds us of how well Android phones are doing nowadays. About a couple of years ago, no one would think that a certain handset model might be close to the iPhone 5 when such a metric is concerned, but here we are today, with the Galaxy S III proving to be a worthy opponent.

Chitika says that the enormous amount of web traffic going through the iPhone 5 is due to its record-breaking sales numbers and LTE connectivity.

Exactly. Still don't see much importance to this statistic. If you're a website owner, all that matters is total traffic, now what phone/device got them there.

Completely agree. At absolute most, all the latest 'statistic' says is that iP5 users browse the web more than GS III users.

Still waiting for the iP5 to sell the magic 20 million number in 100 days. BTW, 'sell' means to ship. Orders placed don't count. Also, the iP5 has a ways to go to top the GS III in overall sales.

Why am I not surprised to see that Ray S. is making this claim. The statement is true, but over all the GS3 best the iPhone in over all functionality.

I can use my camera just fine. I don't get the purple haze. Maps do suck, that is true.

Hell, it is no way. This iCrap5 can not even compare with my MOTO Bionic. My Bionic's map worked flawless and fast.

No
Bro u need to watch the reviews and comparisons. Actually the iPhone 5 currently has the fastest browser in real world usage, and benchmarks. Jellybean might change that, but rite now the ip5 is the faster device.
