Apple’s iPhone 5 has only been available for a few weeks, but already, it’s generating more Web traffic volume than the Samsung Galaxy S3.
Online advertising network Chitika today released results of a study it conducted on Web traffic volume between the iPhone 5 and the Galaxy S3. The company found that of “millions of mobile ad impressions” it recorded on the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S3, 56 percent were found to originate from Apple’s handset. Samsung’s smartphone nabbed 44 percent of the total impressions.
“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,” Chitika wrote today in a blog post. “Record-breaking sales numbers, along with new 4G browsing speeds which encourage data usage, are the most likely explanation for this tremendous growth.”
