Saw 4-5 people with the Samsung GS 4 and one with the HTC One. Israel has the second highest smartphone per capita ratio in the world, so I think we're a prerty good gauge. Anyways haven't seen the Z yet and I really like that phone.
shipped., 03 Jul 2013that's SHIPPED though. ie, sent to retailers. They could have millions in warehouses etc.In any company, if a logistics person was purchasing and storing millions inventories in the warehouse, they would be fired within the week for incompetence. Especially in the technology sector where products go obsolete at the rate of twice a year, they don't "stockpile" inventories for later. So shipped number is a very reliable number to cou t sales.
AnonD-4697, 03 Jul 2013Isn't as impressive as the S3 numbers. Sorry! Seems like Apple will have better scores.S4 numbers are 1.7x faster but not as impressive? lol

whts the use it just produces the quantity and not quality atleast i would prefer a one over a s4 but currently satisfied with my xperia z
[deleted post]Thanks for the info. We always need to confirm that when we are talking about you Samsung fans.
Isn't as impressive as the S3 numbers. Sorry! Seems like Apple will have better scores.
We have to be kind tho, Samsung fanboys have had a tough year so far, SGS4 totally outclassed in design and innovation. Resorting to sales tricks lol when sales have actually been disappointing hahaha.
"In news that will doubtless be causing some red faces at Samsung, The Loop reports that the iPhone got the highest score for overall customer satisfaction in a survey of 44,168 smartphone owners in South Korea.
Apple scored 52 percent against Samsung’s 50 and LG’s 46. Apple also scored highest for after-sales support, reliability and speed of repair … "

AnonD-151727, 03 Jul 2013being shipped = s0ld...you think samsung ships them ro people for free...get realSamsung isn't sending them to people. They are shipping it to their retail partners. And unless you know the details of the various agreements they have, you have no idea when Samsung will be paid or how many each retailer is contractually obligated to order. These phones are in the channel. It's a simple marketing technique that companies use to hype their products and to mislead simple people. Is it that hard for you to understand or have you been drinking too much samsung kool aid? Maybe you're just one of those paid students trying to make you posting quota so Samsung pays you this weekend.

Well I see so many s4 in Samsung stores not yet sold. How could anyone claim that shipped is equivalent to sold?
"Companies also sometimes fudge their numbers using a sleight of hand called "channel stuffing." In short, this trick lets a business conjure up higher sales figures by shipping more products to retailers than the retailers are able to sell.
Samsung itself got caught doing this kind of number fudging with its Galaxy Tab tablet earlier this year.
Samsung initially announced last December that it had sold 1 million Galaxy Tab units. Then in January, the company said it had sold 2 million units. But during a later earnings call with analysts, a Samsung executive admitted that those numbers didn't refer to consumer sales but rather to the number of tablets the company had shipped to retailers. The executive reportedly used the term "sell-in" to reflect shipments to retailers and "sell-out" to reflect sales to consumers." - CNET
