Only 40 million? S3 was sold in 50 million units in the same time : http://www.gsmarena.com/samsun...ews-5709.php

And they predicted that they will sell 80 milion till end of 2013, and 4 month after that time, they are only at half of that (if that number of 40 million isn't another lie ) :

I was trying to prove that leave the fanboysm aside. I don't know but I hate fanboys the most and frankly, I hate myself too for the same reason. Honestly, I don't like Samsung because I had some really bad experience with my Note 2(sold it). I don't bash Samsung. I pop out the reality which you people are blindly disagreeing too. Wake up. You pay that company, they don't pay you a penny.

I later said, all of the 9500 models which include 5-6 models followed by the CDMA models. It counts a total of 6 models and hence, 6 models sold 40 million. In case of S3, a single model sold 60 million. This is what I am talking about. I am not hating on or something. I am just trying to tear the curtain of blindness from the eyes of fanboys that wake up. Samsung use to sell flagship models like that. It was not the case of S4, nor the S5 because S4 was not a 'premium' standard flagship phone and S5 is just an upgraded Samsung Galaxy S4 Advanced LTE. It's not even better than Note 3...

Like the single sim variant and dual sim varient. Like the advanced variant. They are different phones for different markets just like S600 and Octa and S800 so 6 phones sold 40 millions :) It's so low considering a single phone "S3" sold 6 millions, isn't it? :)))))))))))))

Even the SGS4 didn't sell as well as Samsung hoped, but they managed to cover this quite well in the media with their advertising blitz and paying off media.

Google 'SGS4 sales poor' and you will find a ton of articles with lots of numbers and facts from carriers etc.

Google 'SGS4 sales good' and you will find lots of similar articles, mainly because they quote the same source and usually it's from Samsung press statements. Either that or "according to a senior Samsung Executive..."

Also, nobody is fooled by the SHIPPED vs SOLD press statements, except a special bunch drinking Samsung Koolaid, so can we give it a rest Samsung?

Everyone can conclude themselves.

Then, there are 4 devices as you have mentioned + other CDMA phones which you have also mentioned. I wrote 11 variants. Ok no problem, I admit I was wrong :) Lets shorten the numbers to 6 from 11 as you have written. So, there are 6 devices which are sold around 40 millions, right? :)))))
