Samsung Galaxy S5 sales expected to dip 25 per cent in Q3 2014 due to iPhone 6

Although Samsung expected to sell over 21 million Galaxy S5 units in Q3 2014, Samsung is expecting a 25% drop in orders for the next quarter (Q3, 2014) to just 15 million units. This drop is expected due to the upcoming Apple iPhone 6 and the recently released LG G3. The announcement of last year’s iPhone 5S had the same effect of Galaxy S4’s sales. According to sources, Apple will release the iPhone 6 in 4.7 inch screen and 5.5 inch screen variants.

Even LG G3 is putting a lot of pressure on Samsung Galaxy S5 as it looks better, has faster camera and a larger screen in similar sized body. According to the reports, in the initial few days after its launch, LG G3 managed to ship 25,000 to 30,000 units each day. On the other hand, only 7,000 to 8,000 Galaxy S5 devices were sold each day during its initial launch days.

I personally liked the LG G3 better than the Galaxy S5 but I might switch to Apple iPhone 6 with a 4.7 inch display and I am excited about iOS 8 because I already have other devices from Apple ecosystem. But I can’t leave Android as my primary device. What are you people excited about? Do let us know your choice of flagship smartphone.

*I really did not read the entire article and just read bits and pieces and started commenting.Now I read a phrase where a comparison between the launch day sales of G3 and S5 is shown but its not a proper comparison in fair terms.Actually a rule was passed in south Korea whereby operators were prevented from adding new subscribers for a particular period and S5’s global launch date fell in that period so operators started giving out S5 much before the actual launch date of S5 and this is the reason behind Samsung’s launch date numbers in Korea being low.… Read more »

*Now this by no way means that the Galaxy S5 is a flop.The Samsung Galaxy S5 may be a flop in terms of innovation but in terms of sales numbers its definitely better than most other Android flagships released this year. *Cutting down orders for the next quarter after a smartphone’s launch is a general practice used by many manufacturers and nothing to cough at.For example I clearly remember that Apple had reduced component supplies by as much as 50% a month after iphone 5’s release so does that mean that iphone 5 is a flop?Definitely not!.Yeah overall the G3… Read more »
