70M sales? Delusional. I'm holding on to my hard earned money to the more deserving s6. Only if it truly has micro SD slot. Replaceable battery is a plus. Looking forward also to shooting underwater.
This is the real quote from the Samsung executive: "The sales of the Galaxy S6 series have already surpassed 10 million,"
So it does not specify the day when the sales have reached 10 million. The consensus among media has been about 20~21 days.
Besides, the high-end smartphone market in Korea has been literally frozen due to the newly enacted law, called 'Dantongbeob', which practically prohibits telecom companies from providing subsidies ( though sales of Galaxy S6 is still topping here. ) So mentioning the result of the domestic sales has no relevance here.
It can reach 10 million, because the other brands are not that aggressive this year.
Z4...booh; G4...booh; Xiaomi....booh; HTC...booh; Moto, who needs a 6" nexus phone.
Samsung just shoot itself in the foot with s6...
That happens when you dissapoint most of your longtime users by ditching features they expected of you previously
The sheer amount of marketing cost ( more tv commercials for s6 than tampons and snacks combined) coupled with low sales equals a big minus on their account
Many people like S6/ S6 Edge, but can't afford it due to high prices. Samsung shouldn't think that just because of fact that people like the device, they want/can pay a huge premium...
I personally like iPhone, but never had one because I think that it's badly overpriced. But it doesn't mean I don't like it. The same thing happens with S6/S6 Edge.
S6/ S6 Edge is very important to Samsung not for high profit, but for not loosing market share completely. This is how they should look at S6/S6 Edge. Hope Samsung guys have a feel or reality...
Kronkus, 19 May 2015Still expensive. Note 4 is cheaperYup and far better usability, in other words battery life. Plus you don't need to run to the service center to change the battery when you need to. Not everyone is tech savvy to change the battery by themselves like the most of us around in here.
Anyone who believed the hype Samsung made before it's lunch with all the so called pre-orders are clearly delusional. It was never going to fly when the predecessors where clearly better in terms of utility and long life. I'll get the Note 4 next year before it goes the way of the dodo with the Note 5 which is for sure will be following in the footsteps of S6 and S6 edge.
Lacklustre sales can also be attributed certain markets only releasing the 32GB phone and not the 64/128GB models... hence leaving those of us who want the phone with more storage waiting...
