While there is an obvious difference between shipments to retailers and actual sales to customers, from the point of view of Samsung it basically amounts to the same thing. Sammy must be thrilled by the total shipped results of their newest flagship, the Galaxy S5. According to the latest report, Samsung shipped a record breaking 10 Million Galaxy S5 smartphones in only 25 days.
Here's a quote with the details on this amazing feat,
One should keep in mind though that this figure talks about shipments and not unit sales, therefore its not correct to assume that the company has been able to sell 10 million units in 25 days, even though the Galaxy S5 is the kind of smartphone that can easily sell more than 10 million units throughout its lifetime.
The Galaxy S4 reached this milestone in 27 days which was a record in itself last year. Previous Galaxy flagships even took longer to achieve 10 million retail channel sales. Galaxy S3, Galaxy S2 and the original Galaxy S took 50 days, 5 months and 7 months to move 10 million units respectively.
Samsung is selling Galaxy S5 is more than 125 countries around the world so it wouldn’t really take long to achieve this milestone in terms of unit sales.
It looks like most folks don't care to much about the "dimpled, band-aid" back panel aesthetics of the SGS5. Sound off and let us know if you are one of the folks driving these incredible numbers.
