Expected.. Samsung is a hype created by its own marketing team.. And then there are blind followers to shell out so much on a phone that's made of plastic.. I'll be ashamed of bring out that phone in an high profile conference..

HTC one was my choice.. Very obvious isn't it.. :)

or we are having selective belief - believe only when S4 is selling well and choose not to believe when S4 is not selling well?

Samsung must think consumers are stupid. Why would "informed" buyers purchase the quad-core S4 when the 8-core is available. Boycott the S4 until Samsung is willing to fully launched the actual S4 with the Octa CPU.

The point is that investors Fear - it's one reason for a stock price to drop. Maybe you don't know what you're reading about and learn how to trade.

If there's one widely popular and most available in every country, it's the S4. Sales maybe slow cause people would want to buy the cheaper S3.

I think it is only the sales people who have got shares that are worrying!!! ROFL ROFL

TEN MILLION is enough! and then there are the web sellers, who buy lots of phones, to go straight on Amazon and ebay!!

Check out the sales figures from your local stores than giving your personal opinions. Nexus 4 and LG optimus G? You should at least know that these smartphones not even available in several countries till today.

You say that jelly bean is butter smooth, yet you follow up on rooting, and installing a custom ROM and kernel. And mind you, rooting is not part of the basics. neither is it part of the criteria of calling a phone smart.

It sounds weird, do you guys buying/choosing a phone base on its sales number?! =_="

Do these "Analyst" or "Sales Figure" really representing the popularity among consumers? Most of these "Analyst" or "Sales Figure" are just marketing technique from OEMs, only the official financial report from OEM can be trusted.

And also, as a consumer, who cares whose sales is better than whose and whose sales is going up or down, I JUST BUY/CHOOSE WHAT I PREFER AND WHAT SUITS MOST MY NEEDS/PREFERENCES, that's it.

Have a nice day :D

Why produce two mobiles I9500 and I9505 and what one mobile has the other hasint you could have produces the I9500 with all the features found in both mobiles especially quoting the frequencies for the G£ and the G4 without saying that they are LTE compatible.
