Galaxy S 4 dominates Android at nation’s largest carriers



Surprise, surprise as a new Canaccord Genuity study shows the Galaxy S 4 as the most popular Android device at the nations four largest carriers. Unfortunately for Samsung, the nations largest carriers actually show the iPhone 5s as the top selling smartphone overall.

“Our surveys indicated continued strong sales of the iPhone 5s, as it was by far the top selling smartphone at all four tier-1 U.S. carriers and at most channels where the smartphone launched globally,” Canaccord Genuity analyst T. Michael Walkley explained in a note to clients. “Our surveys also indicated steady iPhone 5c sales with the smartphone’s color options and more affordable price point proving popular with its intended audience.”

The good news for Samsung is that the Galaxy S 4 remains the second-most-popular handset at Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile. That’s got to count for something as Apple solidifies the first and third place spots leaving competitors like HTC out in the cold.
