The Galaxy S III has been available in the U.S. for nearly four
months, and posted impressive sales figures – even beating out
domestic sales of the iPhone 4S in August 2012. However, only 18
days since the public release of the iPhone 5, the newest Apple
device has overtaken the Galaxy S III in terms of Web traffic
volume. Record-breaking sales numbers, along with new 4G browsing
speeds which encourage data usage, are the most likely explanation
for this tremendous growth.
LTE might help explain why iPhone 5 owners are browsing the web more than those using older iPhones, but it doesn’t explain how it so quickly surpassed the Galaxy S III, which also supports LTE. There are profound differences in how iPhone and Android owners use their devices.
