AnonD-88867, 16 Jan 2013They may have shipped 35 million Iphone 5's but I dnt think atleast 20 Million were sold in th... moreSorry to bust your bubble... Samsung use 'shipped' as well as sold in about equal amounts. In all fairness Apple probably quotes sold vs shipped more often than Samsung does.
Apple are wealthier than Samsung because they charge huge profit margins on their devices. .. well over what any other manufacturer does.
Thats a very good number for a smart featurephone, 35 mill in one quarter, wow. Thats something for Nokia to consider, their smart featurephone series Asha is very much cheaper and sell so much less.
But then, the price is actually the same, since most iphone buyers buy on contract and pay like max $199, and the 4S is free on contract even in emerging markets now. Modern people dont care much about the total price, what matters is how much cash do they have to put down on day one. Still, the biggest reason is the ecosystem, you can get apps and angrybirds for Asha but not much more.
xiaomi, 16 Jan 2013yes samsung achieved 40m+ over 6 months or 2 quarters. the iphone sold 35 in 3 months or 1 quarter.Actually Sami sold 40M+ in 7 months not 6.
Took over 15 months to sell that many S2's.
Having said that if this trend continues then SGS4 will outsell next iPhone.

They may have shipped 35 million Iphone 5's but I dnt think atleast 20 Million were sold in the quarter...Plus Apple unlike earlier gives fake details becoz dere shipments are way lower than Other Manufactures such as the Big Daddy Samsung...!!! Samsung always says The Word 'SOLD' ...S3 has sold 40M units till now and S2 too..Amazing figures...Analysts Predict over 800 Million Smartphone Shipments in the year 2013 BY SAMSUNG...And thats just Smartphones...They have little phones and hw abut there Laptops, Chromebooks, Ultrabooks......and all there Home Appliances and I almost forgot they are the biggest TV Manufactures. ..OMG!! Samsung is real lucky...BUT Apple is more wealthier than Samsung when combined all money that Apple has gained since there launch of products from 1970's...Its said Even Putting INTEL, Microsoft and Google together cannot come closer that Figure
Here we go again.. You ifanboys, keep your diapers on, and stop dreaming. Time for a reality check. You need to look at 2012 Global sales, they look something like this..
Android = 72.4% iOS = 13.9%

• Samsung 420 million
• Nokia 368 million
• Apple 125 million
Well Samsung sold 320 Million SmartPhones...Apple sells like 52 per Quarter...Very Impressive..Samsung anyway doubles the amount...
Sershan, 16 Jan 2013When is everyone going to stop this attack on apple and samsung, both are good phones. This is... moreFanboy-ism is today's cock envy carried out by kids who are either not old or clever enough to own and drive a car they can brag about.
Well done Apple for shipping 52 millions of more or less pretty looking mediocrity. Good to see that your marketing department is top notch. Competitors would do well to invest a little more in advertising.
And the number of sales is 26 millions http://www.statista.com/statistics/12743/worldwide-apple-iphone-sales-since-3rd-quarter-2007/.You can google as much as you want.
Two iphone 5 i bought and together both of them still didnt gave me a 10 , 5 plus 5 suppose to be 10 , Oh Wait my Screen just turn Black and frozen on my iphone 5 , i'll just finish this on my Galaxy s3 , i was saying.....
I belive they have shipped so many but How many they have actually sold? I have heard many people are really disappointed that the only innovation of iPhone 5 seem to be a smaller size and low weight. What means smaller size and lower weight of iPhone 5 vs Nokia Lumia 920's size? 1) Smaller screen 2) No HAAC (High Amplitude Audio Capture) microphones and so the quality of the audio with the videos is much worse 3) No Optical image stabilization 4) No NFC 5) No USB 6) No integrated wireless charging 7) Aluminium cover gets broken easier and it isn't so scratch resistant than a polycarbonate cover of Lumia 920 - polycarbonate is used also for example a bulletproof windows material 8) No pentaband LTE support
AnonD-77635, 16 Jan 2013So the S3 sold 40million units, and the iphone 5 is 35million, WOW indeed.yes samsung achieved 40m+ over 6 months or 2 quarters. the iphone sold 35 in 3 months or 1 quarter.

"According to one analyst" - fortune-telling gypsies are now called analysts, of course they dress in less coloured outfits and work with something more serious than just a crystal ball while looking more serious about their important life depending job but the result is the same, there's no guarantee if it will ever happen...they had to come up with something after stock prices went a little crazy, anyway-good for crapple
