First week of June has passed, and the monthly stats from Krusell are in. Here is the list of the Top 10 selling phones for May 2012:

1. (-) Samsung Galaxy i9300 SIII

2. (1) Apple iPhone 4/4S

3. (2) Sony Xperia S

4. (3) Samsung I9100 Galaxy S II

5. (5) Samsung Galaxy Note

6. (-) HTC One S

7. (4) Sony Xperia U

8. (-) Samsung GT-B2710 / Xcover 271

9. (-) HTC One X

10. (6) Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc/Arc S

() = Last month’s position.

We can see that  Samsung Galaxy S3 has ousted the iPhone 4S from its number one position. It has made a direct entry on the numbero uno spot.

According to Ulf Sandberg, CEO at Krusell

Galaxy SIII has a sleek design, some new features but mostly a great 4, 8 HD super Amoled touchscreen and my guess is that it will stay at the top until Apple launches their next iPhone.

The list is based on the number of pieces of custom made mobile- and smartphone cases ordered from Krusell during May 2012. Krusell’s list is unique due to the fact that it reflects the sales of phones on six continents and in more than 70 countries around the globe.

Ulf Sandberg, CEO at Krusell quoted

…the most interesting news are not shown in the top three, where normally all focus is…

…I would like to point out Nokia Lumia 800 which is new on the list and goes straight into 6th place which is an indication that Nokias new smartphone is well received in the market. I also would like to address Samsung’s Galaxy Note, that is representing a new segment for smartphones. Note’s size opens for interesting discussions on how phones and work tools will be designed size wise for the coming years. I can see that there is a lot of demand from the market for carrying solutions when the devices become larger, and that it also demands new innovative ideas.

Seems like Nokia is all up for a fight. Also, the Note, the strongest smartphone of em all is giving a tough fight to the top dogs. In my opinion, the Sammy Android lineup will occupy most of the positions in the coming months.

Stay tuned..!!

2. (2) Apple iPhone 4

3. (9) Samsung GT-B2710 / Xcover 271

10. (-) Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo

() = Last month’s position.

While the Galaxy S2 maintains the numero uno position, as predicted by their MD, Ulf Sandberg some time ago, we do see competition ahead with the iPhone 4S entry.

What is nice is that there are 5 brands in this list for this October 2011. Ulf Sandberg quotes

It’s a good sign to see that the volumes are divided on multiple brands even if LG and RIM are out, and HTC only have one model this month. For the coming month, I forecast that iPhone 4S will climb and so will Sony Ericsson Arc S.

For those of you who don’t know, this list is based on the number of pieces of custom made mobile and smartphone cases ordered from Krusell during October 2011. Krusell’s list is unique due to the fact that it reflects the sales of phones on six continents and in more than 70 countries around the globe.

The Krusell’s List of Top Ten selling phones for August has been released. Samsung Galaxy S II is still on top of Krusell’s Top seller list for the second month in a row.

1. (1) Samsung I9100 Galaxy S II

2. (2) Apple iPhone 4

3. (4) Nokia 3720 Classic

4. (3) HTC Sensation

5. (7) Nokia C5

7. (10) Samsung B2100

8. (6) Nokia 6303 Classic

9. (-) HTC HD2

10. (9) HTC Desire HD

() = Last month’s position.

What is most surprising here is the entry of the Old HTC HD2 out of the blue to claim the 9th Spot. The device runs on Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional which is already seeing the end of it’s days.

Ulf Sandberg CEO at Krusell’s quoted:

The last month we have all read more than what probably is healthy for us, regarding the legal wars between Apple and Samsung. Even though Apple is making life hard for Samsung, the Galaxy II is still number one on our list. What device that will have the top position for September, hopefully will be the results of the consumers choice…
