Close to a month since the circulation of the iPhone 5, Apple’s latest version of its premier smartphone series, statistics based on Chitika Insights note that there are more iPhone 5 web users than the Samsung Galaxy S III.
Chitika Insights, the research arm of the Chitika advertising network, took the time in assessing which of the two smartphones are more used for mobile web browsing, tracing and analyzing records between October 3 and October 9.
In Chitika Insights’ report, mobile iPhone 5 browsing rated a 56% chunk, leaving Samsung Galaxy S III mobile browsing at 44%. The iPhone 5’s built-in support for the LTE communication standard is attributed to its web use dominance.
Though the study did involve other mobile products, Chitika Insights’ study was more focused in comparing how the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S III performed.
With the S III already circulating in the US market for months, the iPhone 5’s relative newness says something about how well it is performing. Amidst all the criticisms thrown its way, particularly with how Apple’s Maps had failed in wowing its users, the recent stats from Chitika Insights says something about how mobile-inclined the iPhone 5 is.
As an Apple product, the iPhone 5 broke its predecessor’s pre order figures, with more than two million pre order figures raked in by the iPhone 5, twice the pre order figures of the iPhone 4S.
Selling a record breaking five million iPhone 5 units in the first week it had been announced to be available, it appears that the iPhone 5 is doing well by itself as a smartphone.
