Samsung S3 is a major success
When it comes to the most popular Android smartphones on the market, Samsung traditionally has held that honor. Samsung has announced that it has sold more than 20 million Galaxy S III smartphones in the device's first 100 days of availability.
The S3 launched at the end of May and according to Samsung the device has sold at rate of about 200,000 units per day. The S3 reached the 20 million sold mark about three times faster than its predecessor the S2, and about six times faster than the original Galaxy S. Samsung offered details breaking down the 20 million number by country.
According to the manufacturer 6 million of the sales came in Europe, 4.5 million units were sold in Asia, 4 million units were sold in North America, and 2.5 million were sold in Korea. While sales of the S3 reached the 20 million mark quicker than the two previous S devices, the S3 still has a way to go to match raw sales numbers for its predecessors.
So far, the S2 has sold 28 million units, and the original S has sold 24 million units as of this June.
A Samsung spokesperson said, "Galaxy S III is for non-technical people to evolve and in smart phones the global smartphone market. [Samsung] is making a few changes to the [smartphone] and will try our best to provide a special experience for consumers to differentiate continuous innovation through the creation of products in the future."

What you miss in your sarcasm is that, simultaneously, Apple sold 26m old iPhone 4S models:
May to July, their Q3, vs May until August, or 100 days.

Nice try Tony but no one cares. If you really want us to believe that you are actually a different person, you should actually try and post as "Michael" while posting as Tony as well and not waiting till you are constantly getting -1s. Now hurry up and post something about market share being meaningless while profits are everything.

So you have nothing, hmm?
Apple's sales are a result of solid update history, great battery life, good performance, good build quality, and games.
