Samsung Galaxy S II Flies off Shelves

The Samsung Galaxy S II is the UK’s favourite phone after being on the market for only a month, new figures reveal.

The Samsung Galaxy S II is the UK's favourite phone after being on the market for only a month, new figures reveal.

HTC still dominates the top 10 chart however with five models in the running of the uSwitch Mobile Tracker which ranks popular handsets based on search results and sales.

Other than one entry from Blackberry in the top 10, Android continues to take market share as the Google operating system powered 80 percent of the Top 10 most popular handsets in May.

"HTC and Android are still big winners this month, with HTC claiming half of the Top 10 handsets and Android now powering 80 percent of the chart,” said Ernest Doku, uSwitch technology expert.

"This really stokes the fire in the manufacturer wars, which is set to intensify with an amazing selection of mobiles.”

This latest Tracker sees the iPhone 4 get knocked off the top spot after it was voted the UK's favourite phone in April.

The Samsung Galaxy S II only became available on 1st May and since then has flown off shelves as consumers are keen to get their hands on its impressive Super AMOLED Plus display and speedy dual-core 1.2 GHz processor.

While the HTC Desire S has remained strong in the charts, this month it was the biggest climber, moving to 5th place in May. While the HTC Desire stands in third place, the HTC Desire HD in fourth, the HTC Wildfire in at seventh and the HTC Sensation in at eighth place.

While RIM devices were shown to flail in May, continuing their downward spiral with the Blackberry Curve 8520 taking the biggest hit falling two places to ninth, showing how it has fallen victim to new Smartphone technology which has been launched recently.
