Gelvin, 03 Jul 2013I do hope these 20 millions include; Samsung Galaxy S4(octa), Samsung Galaxy S4(Exynos), Sams... moreWho would want to order so many units when you know that it is not going to sell well? Lol! I'm sure retailers are way smarter than you, unknown fanboy. :)
I do hope these 20 millions include;
Samsung Galaxy S4(octa), Samsung Galaxy S4(Exynos), Samsung Galaxy S4(mini), Samsung Galaxy S4(Zoom),
Samsung Galaxy S4(Active), Samsung Galaxy S4(S800).
You can exclude S800 version as it's still pretty new but 5 versions are enough to make a sale reach a count of 20 million in 2-3 month time. After all, Sammy is a well-known marketing company.
But I wonder, why every time they came up with this "shipped" statement rather than "sold-out"? This defines, they are being shipped if demand exceed supply but what funny is, this doesn't mean sold.
Being shipped and sold: There is a huge difference between them. Shipping - They still aren't bought by retailers as they are in the storage areas. On the contrary, sold - Means they are bought by retailers who paid duties to clear them out of the custom, paid transporting expenses to the shop and then credit receipts of the 'sold' S4 units.
Here, after reading the source article - I am on the fact that, "They ARE NOT sold", they only are shipped.
If you are not a hardcore or brainwashed fanboy, may be you'll understand my point of posting but if you are opposite. Don't bother replying to it as I will only be laughing on you and won't count you as worth my debating colleague.
Denizli , 03 Jul 2013I literally only know one person with a sgs iv. I work at a bank and have not seen one come in... moreWake up! You must be dreaming. Perhaps you may have got confused with s3 since it looks alike. There are many among average users don't even know that HTC One existed. Poor marketing, then you expect it to sell more than s4? Iphone 5 is pretty obsolete model now and sales may not be good as before. Are you confused between subsidy and discount? I don't see any discount for contract-free Galaxy s4 devices.
I'm an S4 owner for a month now with some disappointments (overheating/battery), but overall fine.
It's sad that in South Africa most service providers have the S4 and the Experia Z, but no HTC One... which means the playing field is not even.
And in terms of advertising, u see far, far more S4 than anything else. I can believe the report due to the marketing I see on the product.
Samsung S4 wins hands down - storage, trueHD display, better camera, up-gradeable memory, replaceable battery, S-Health etc.. Come on IPhone you lost this battle!
Hope Samsung would sell more of the S4. I can't wait to see how many of thise who bought the device will be so happy after Samsung will release S4 advance. Don't be mad cause they are just too advance on developing techs so they can release new phone every 2 weeks.
I literally only know one person with a sgs iv. I work at a bank and have not seen one come in yet with a client. Mostly iPhone 5, some HTC ONE. And funny thing is how heavily discounted the sgs iv was only 3 weeks after launch.. Not sold out anywhere.
20million?? Yeah.. Ok.
If galaxy s4 is selling well ever than before. Why would they offer a free screen replacement, s view cover free and extra goodies in India ? I Doubt this news source.
apple is the best ...
a note 2 user ;) upgraded to s4 a week back!
the sad thing is this is all true because i work in a phone shop and all i hear is s4 i want s4 i want s4 now in town all i see is people with s3 and s4 its crazy
Anonymous, 03 Jul 2013 this year is a fight between two KOREAN'S GIANTS. LG's G2 vs. Samsung 's NOTE3. Agree and Xperia Z Ultra is not even included in that figth, it is only a spectator. LOL!
It's 100% lies. I haven't seen anybody with S4 in all the time, but I seen some with One.
[deleted post]You must be one of those Apple,Sony Htc,or Nokia fans that simply cannot stand it when Samsung does well,dont be mad bro :)
What?, 03 Jul 2013Read carefully - it's shipped 20 million not sold to end consumers.. so numbers to end consume... moreCommon sense will tell you, a company will not ship its products more than what the demand is.
Shipments tell an overview of how the consumers are reacting on the product.
Sorry for the Sony Xperia Z. They is no ways Sony beat Samsung.
lol, 03 Jul 2013The fact that it's so easy to lie on the internet, that doesn't mean you actually have to do it.im working in a MN IT company, i have never seen anyone with a S4. people here are purchasing s3 as it will get most of the features of S4.
Fact is customer buy from telco, and sell to third party first hand to earn quick cash.
And no one buys and use them. Same as iPhones.
Tons of 16gb crap collecting dust at shop.. price drop like crazy.
lol, 03 Jul 2013The fact that it's so easy to lie on the internet, that doesn't mean you actually have to do it.right, only samsung is allowed to do that, although it pays students to do their dirty job:), I guess all these 20 million passed through your hands:), when samy ships millions - true, true, true, but when the news reports sales slowing down, lie, lie, lie - typical fanboysm
