Samsung Galaxy S4 grabs top spot at three of four top U.S. carriers

Samsung Galaxy S4 grabs top spot at three of four top U.S. carriers
For the first time since the launch of the Apple iPhone 5 last September, Samsung outsold Apple in the U.S. during a month. Based on the monthly store surveys conducted by Canaccord Genuity analyst Michael Walkley, the Korean based manufacturer outsold Apple during May thanks to the formidable combination of the Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy S III and the Samsung GALAXY Note II.

In addition, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is the top selling smartphone at three of the nation's four top carriers. At Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile, the latest Android flagship model was on top of the sales charts followed by the Apple iPhone 5. Only at AT&T was Apple's iconic smartphone on top with the Samsung Galaxy S4 trailing. But the iPhone has a long history at AT&T as the device was originally an exclusive at the carrier in the U.S. for a few years.

The HTC One was third at AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. With the phone not due at Verizon until later this summer, the recently launched Nokia Lumia 928 came in third at Big Red. This was the first appearance of a Windows Phone model in the investment house's sales charts in two months.
