and the selling will be even better with the release of its version of the S800. S4 Rocks!
Maez, 23 Oct 2013I dont know what to believe first samsung claims that s4 has a poor sales thats why samsung is... moreWhy so serious to probe? Just a phone? It is not as if it is killing you that you have to over react. There's far more better thing in life. Just relax...
Well, as usual, sales sluggish, disappointing sales are made up by some apple fan reviewers yet they fail again every year. 70 to 80 millions units in 6 to 7 months is every sellers's dream and love to seem them that they achieve it. well I can't blame them as they are really good.Cheers!
honestly I work for smasung and I have never heard anything but high sales numbers for the s4, all the bad sales numbers are unfounded as far as I can tell.
I have my guarantee, and is simply sensational. I am very happy and pleased to have purchased the S4 4 G and not change it for any other flagship brand competitors, not paying me for this.
People just need to accept it's a HUGE success. They expect total sales of 60-70 million by year end (only 8 months after release)..It's currently about 80% above Galaxy S3 sales at the same point last year... it also has 3 variant devices not even included in sales! The iPhone 5s might reach a little more lifetime sales worldwide. . but then that's only ONE flagship per year!! Samsung has also sold over 30 million Galaxy Note 2 devices so far which is basically the S3's big brother. Same way that NOTE 3 is the S4's big brother!!
I knew that the earlier reports were just silly Samsung bashing.. even with other versions out there like S4mini S4zoom and S4 activ, the regular S4 had sold over 23 million by the end of june.. sold 7 million in july and 5 million in either aug or sept ( can't remember which month it was).. Bottom line is that sales to the end of September were well over 40 million!! (23m+7m+5m + 1 other month) when they include October,November+December the total sales at the end of the year will be at least 60million if not 70 million since the S4 won't be so expensive after 6-8 month availability!! It's the biggest selling ANDROID PHONE EVER!!!
nothing weird. the S4 16GB 3G version is selling cheaper than Xperia Z1 and HTC One in my country.

Have you ever wondered why Samsung always reports these numbers at the end of October/beginning of November? It's Christmas stocking time. There is a massive inventory build up, much greater than at any time of the year, going on now. That inventory won't get sold for another 2-3 months.
Also, Samsung sells to more than just to carriers. As a large supplier with a popular product,they can dictate certain terms with their distributors. Do you know the agreements they have with the various outlets? When is revenue recognized? This could be in AR for the next few months. Do they have any sort of return policy? These things could be in the pipeline and on a ship for next month for all you know. Heck, you don't even know what the guy actually said because the source is in Korean. Go on ahead though, my little sheep. Slurp up everything without putting a little thought into it.

Apple also does this for the iPhones that are sold through carriers. Carriers wouldn't have ordered it if it wasn't selling. This topic has been discussed at numerous places for thousand times so get over it.
The thing that sells SGS4 is its awesome Full HD Super AMOLED display. While using smartphone you look at the screen 99,9% of the time and it is the most important thing that matters, cause you forget about the materials and design at the end of first week you bought it. No one else offers that kind of display with its pure blacks, little energy consumption and nearly infinite contrast.

First week sales are much different than six months down the line. With the Christmas season coming up, it would not be surprising to learn that they just shipped out the majority of their Q4 inventory and then used that to massage their sales numbers. A similar thing happened last year.

When apple claimed to sell millions in the first week, no one among you doubted. Now because its samsung, keep hating boys while samsung does better in performance, design and sales rather than release a almost the same device with lighter weight, slimmer bezel and name it Ipad air

They are posturing once again... moreshipped = sold..this discussion has been up before...you must be one of those that believes manufacturers ship merchandise to retailers and duatributors for free and hope they will be sold ...go back to school

Yes S4 might lag but its nothing big, my blackberry lags but will u call something that stutter a not up to a half of a second, something to worry about?
Pro.DigiVid, 23 Oct 2013Any ways. Now after feeling insecure.. sammy is making devices like round and feature like eye... moreBasically that comment makes it seem like you just hate Samsung in general not the phone. If apple implemented an Eye scanner lock screen you would probably say it was innovative and the most significant thing to come out of a mobile phone company.
