Over third of Galaxy S5 upgrades come from iPhone owners

The mobile trade in website CompareMyMobile shows a significant increase in Galaxy S5 and iPhone 5s trade ins

As surprising as it might sound, this comes as a huge acheivement for Samsung since many people who have upgraded to the new Samsung Galaxy S5 flagship smartphone were previously iPhone users. These results come from a mobile trade in website CompareMyMobile which claims that from what they have witnessed during the sales, they have seen a 210 per cent rise in customers who have traded their iPhone 4s for a new Galaxy S5 handset.

Considering the hype created by the new Samsung flagship, this is not hard to believe that people would want to get their hands on the phone even if it means exchanging their iPhones. The phone which went up for sale last week features a 16 MP camera. It combines 4G with WiFi for ultrafast downloads and also has a fingerprint scanner which acts as identity verification for online shopping payments.

The second most traded in device was the Samsung Galaxy S3 which has 196 per cent rise in trade-ins and the iPhone 5s comes in next with trade-ins of which rose by 184 per cent. The Samsung Galaxy S5 on the other hand has seen a 160 per cent increase in its trade ins.
