The Samsung Galaxy S II has beaten Apple’s iPhone 4 to become United Kingdom’s most popular smartphone again.

For the second month, Samsung’s Galaxy S II has remained the most popular phone in the UK as the Android OS continues to dominate the smartphone market.

In a survey carried out by uSwitch, Samsung’s 1.2 GHz dual-core smartphone has been on top of the list since last month, with Apple’s iPhone 4 sitting at the number 2 spot.

HTC’s 1.2 GHz dual-core smartphone, HTC Sensation, has been gaining popularity in the UK, as it climbed to the number three spot. HTC has taken five of the top ten spots in the survey.

“The powerful and flexible Samsung Galaxy S II remains on top as networks and retailers continue to offer a number of strong mobile deals,” says uSwitch technology expert Ernest Doku.

“Samsung can’t rest on its laurels though. The influx of feature-rich phones like the HTC EVO 3D and LG Optimus 3D, both introducing a unique glasses-free 3D viewing experience, could seriously shake things up this summer. We’re also expecting a number of new BlackBerry handsets and of course can’t ignore the enduring rumours of a fifth model of Apple’s iPhone on the horizon.”

The Samsung Galaxy S II, which has been released earlier this year, features a 4.3-inch AMOLED display, 1GB of Ram, an 8-megapixel camera that has 1080p full HD recording capabilities and a minimalist factor.

With the release of new 3D smartphones and the upcoming iPhone release, will Samsung remain on the top of the UK charts?
