but that is not the end of the world yet. Samsung will release Avengers themed one in certain regions...hopefully everywhere can be shipped with this Avengers...themed...
Good news is that Avengers 2 the film itself is doing well in movie theatres...
Let's hope S6 start selling well after Iron Man one released....
I really think S6 Edge is a beatiful phone...

Which are by other article said to be in s5 numbers
but believe what you want..
Not surprising. Crazy price for a phone with less features than the Note 4 or Galaxy S5. No removable battery, no IP67 dust and water resistance, and no micro SD slot make this phone overpriced and underspecced.
Actually it's 10M SALES of the Galaxy S6 vs 10M SHIPMENTS of the Galaxy S5.
That's a world of a difference.

Go to the comment section of any review sites and you can find about 85% of the people disappointed about its latest flagship not having a removable battery, user accessible memory or glass back. While I agree with you about the glass back and battery performance, I don't think the resolution is an issue as I was not disappointed about its clarity when I went to the store to check it out. Yes!! If crappy $150 phones have removable battery and expandable memory then why omit such user friendly features?!! Then you mean that the more you pay the less feature you get!! I never meant to hurt you or anything. I just said what I felt is good for the general public who shed out their hard earned money foe such expensive gadgets. I too was personally thinking about upgrading my S3 this time but didn't feel like the S6 was worth compared to what I spent for my S3 at those times.
corser, 19 May 2015the article states the official said sales
"The sales of the Galaxy S6 series have al... more" South Korea's top tech giant Samsung Electronics Co. said Tuesday its global shipments of the latest flagship Galaxy S6 models surpassed 10 million units in about one month after their release."
For the executive those are sales, but in reality shipped units, not units sold to users
And are lower or equal than S5 initially were...., which had mediocre sales accordingly
And Which for sammy is not good as they projected a lot more to make up for last year loss
JY, 19 May 2015But people like you moan that its made of plastic. yet you want a removable batteryI never said I moaned about plastic being used on Samsung phones. Never guess about what someone thinks and comment about it!! Plastic or metal would have been much better than glass as glass is more susceptible to damage that the other two. Thats all I meant.

In the earnings call a few days ago, mobile division vice president Park Jin-young said the S6 "is selling better than the S5".
Now a Samsung executive said "The sales of the Galaxy S6 series have already surpassed 10 million,"
So from where did you draw the conclusion that S6 sales is behind the schedule?

Don't be ridiculous, every $150 crapphone has this "greatest feature".
S6 is a disappointment due to it's glass body, stupid resolution, mediocre battery, and ugly as always touchwiz.
TannHauser, 19 May 2015Actually its shipped units, not sold to users units...the article states the official said sales
"The sales of the Galaxy S6 series have already surpassed 10 million," a high-ranking Samsung official said. It marked the first time for the company to confirm the sales figure of the latest flagship
read it when you have time kthanxbye
[deleted post]Actually its shipped units, not sold to users units...
They'd have 10,000,000 and 1 by now if they had all versions available. Waiting, waiting, waiting for 120GIG... So much so that I may now wait...
They lost the two most important markets namely China and the Usa.
at some stage people has to stop replacing their old phones quickly with latest phones of minor upgrades,

Think the biggest impact was not releasing/availability 64GB models until start of May (well in UK anyhow)
There isn't anything much to be surprised about by this news! Samsung screwed up their flagship by removing the greatest feature of all time ie. removable battery and expandable memory. Most of the people buy samsung flagships due to the above said features. And they too made it fragile by putting glass in its back. Samsung cant do what Apple can because people have alternative for Android phones but their is not ultimate rival for Apple's iPhone so, they will sell like hot cakes among Apple fans even if they bring about any stupid new feature every year. So Samsung, do your homework properly and make your phones more user accessible!! I just kept away from the S6 this time!!
MHanz, 19 May 2015Anyone who believed the hype Samsung made before it's lunch with all the so called pre-orders ... moreOnly a proof of false marketing methods one should not use, and that many of us were aware of but a few actually listened....
Lying about real market nubers and estimates, falsifying and boosting bloat interest...tends to backfire at oneself, loosing respect from users, and loosing suport from shareholders....
Samsung mobile is loosing ground under their feet....
