Samsung Galaxy S5 outsells iPhone 5s over launch weekend

Though we pretty much had some clues on the sales of the Samsung Galaxy S5 but considering the hype it had created and the sales rush which soon followed its official release, it is worth having a clearer image of the details and we finally have the sales statistics for the phone. The information comes in from iQmetrix which is the leading provider of retail management software for the North American wireless industry. The sales statistics take into account the information from the new Samsung Galaxy S5's launch weekend (Friday, April 11 to Sunday, April 13).

For the final statistics, the data was sampled from over 15,000 store locations across the North America and the findings gave away some pretty interesting results including the data related to the S5 launch, the launch of its number-one rival, the iPhone 5s (Sept. 20-22, 2013) and sales of Galaxy S4 and iPhone 5 devices in the months preceding S5 and 5s launches respectively.

Let's see in detail what the Samsung Galaxy S5 managed to achieve over this tenure;


  • Galaxy S5 vs. iPhone 5s launch sales


Upon launch, the Galaxy S5 sold way better than the iPhone 5s on the launch weekend and as it appears, 23% of the total phones sold int he US were the Galaxy S5 and in Canada they comprised of 18% of the total phone sales (during that period). The iPhone 5s clearly steered behind with only 18% of the phone sales in the US being of iPhone 5s and 13% in Canada.


  • Galaxy S4 sales in 6-month lead-up to Galaxy S5 launch


There is no doubt left that Samsung has been doing exceptionally well in the mobile market and the Galaxy S4 is no less than the latest flaghsip. Even though the onset of the Galaxy S5 had been confirmed and it had been officially announced, the sales for the S4 continued to grow in the holiday season 2013.


  • iPhone 5 Sales in 6-Month lead-up to iPhone 5s launch


On the other hand, things didnt seem to be so good for the iPhone 5 because sales for the phone dropped to a great extent after the launch of the iPhone 5s.


  • Galaxy S5 launch weekend sales by region


Region wise, the Galaxy S5 has once again showed amazing results and it seems as if Samsung is really ruling the mobile market at the moment. In the Southern US region, Galaxy S5 comprised a whopping 41% of phones sold (April 11-13) and 30% in the Northeast, 23% in the Midwest, 21% in the West, as well as 18% of phones sold in Canada.
