The Galaxy S8 is starting to hit doorsteps today, but it turns out many Americans aren't updating. In fact some Americans are still enjoying their Galaxy S5s! According to a report by Kantar World Panel 15.6% of all active Samsung smartphones in the US are Galaxy S5 units while the Galaxy s6 accounts for just 11.4% and Galaxy S7 accounts for just 11.5%. The S5 happened to be one of Samsung's lower performing devices having sold just 12 million units during the first 3 months of launch.
The S5 is getting pretty old but is still a usable device thanks to its user replaceable battery. Newer Galaxy devices won't last as long or at the very least would need to be taken to a repair shop to have the battery changed to make them last longer. I am interested to know how many members here at DroidForums are still carrying the Galaxy S5. What is the main reason you have held on to the device? Do you plan on upgrading anytime soon, and to what device?
