Samsung Galaxy S5 sales appear to be twice better than S4's

It is a pretty common sight to see manufacturers trying to raise sales digits for their newest releases in order to create some artificial hype and attract more customers and Samsung has been no exception to this market rule. The company claims that its new flagship Galaxy S5 has managed to sell off 30% more units as compared to the predecessor Galaxy S4.

The sales figures of the phone had been met with a lot of criticism and most reviews stated that the higher sales figure is mostly due to the launch which took place in more markets this time (125 vs the 63 for the Galaxy S4). And it was also assumed that the demand remains constant since the demand for high end phones has reached saturation and at this point of maturity in the product life cycle, there seems to be little opportunity left for further growth.

However, a new report from the UK retailer Phones4u states the opposite of this assumption. According to this report, the Samsung Galaxy S5 saw twice the sales of the Galaxy S4 on launch day and it has been enjoying similarly high interest since. So far there have been no exact numbers revealed by the retailers or even Samsung but still the news remains to be pretty impressive and it is surely doing a good job of attracting customers. Samsung is soon going to roll out its financial performance for the first quarter of this year but unfortunately it is not going to take into account the sales of the Galaxy S5 since it launched midway of April but the results for the second quarter will surely have its impacts.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
