The Samsung Galaxy S10 is doing very well in sales and the phone just launched on Friday. Following today’s earlier news about the Galaxy S10 breaking the UK’s Samsung pre-order record, the US is also seeing record pre-orders for the Samsung flagship.
Power users lead the pack in the U.S., with the Galaxy S10+ accounting for over 57% of pre-orders. – Samsung spokesperson
We don’t have the statistics on which colors were the most popular, but the US appears to be very fond of Prism White. In the UK, it was Prism Black. Interestingly enough, the most expensive model, the Galaxy S10+, made up 57% per total pre-orders in the US, the same percentage as we reported for the UK.Galaxy S10+ in Prism White
Apple must certainly feel the heat with this news, the competitor didn’t go out with as much of a bang as in previous years, yet Samsung is breaking its own records.
The S10 and S10+ are phones geared toward power users but that doesn't mean everyone that bought them is a power user even if Samsung is insinuating it, it's not that hard to understand.
GS8 pre-orders were record breaking too, but from what I understand, lifetime sales disappointed. Best to wait for actual sales numbers, and longer term numbers before drawing any conclusions.
Like it or not the S10/S10+ are the phones to beat, Samsung really knocked it out of the park this time.
