Samsung Galaxy S5 Experienced 30% More Sales Than Galaxy S4 On Launch Day

Samsung has released the Galaxy S5 last week throughout the world and as per reports, it has already broke the launch day sales records of all the previous smartphones from Samsung.

The sales of Galaxy S5 might have doubled that of Galaxy S4 in some European countries.

The reasons for such a jump in sales might also have been due to the large scale consecutive launch that Samsung managed to pull off. The Galaxy S5 was launched simultaneously in over 125 countries around the world and it will be launched in 25 additional countries in the next week. But that is not the only reason for its success. Galaxy S5 has come out with flying colours in almost all the reviews till now. There has been a consensus among experts who are praising it for its extremely long battery life, great screen and camera quality. It also comes with the largest amount of sensors ever shipped on a smartphone till now. There is a temperature sensor, heart rate monitor and a pedometer among others.

We’ve had a chance to use this device and according to our first impressions, the device has a great screen and a very good camera but it doesn’t feel not as premium as the iPhone 5S or the HTC One M8. Did any one of you order the Galaxy S5 already? Let us know your impressions in the comments.

@Rama nope for LG, you can flash firmware as long as its for the phone type. I’ll tell my case: I have Optimus L5 (LG E612) , the non nfc version of Optimus L5 (LG E610) .. but in order to get root/cwm/unlockboot I need to flash AIO kdz designed for E610.. and it works perfect. Same with custom ROM, all are for E610. . Yet it works for me, only I need to flash a deep sleep kernel for E612 🙂

*Okay maybe what you’re saying is right for your phone but when I owned the Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus there were two versions one was the international version and one was a Latin America version.Many a times when I visited xda pages for custom Rom for my international Samsung galaxy ace plus it was clearly written that its meant only for international version and Flashing in the Latin America version may brick that device. *Apart from that a guy has specifically developed a custom Rom for Latin America version of ace plus.I mean if its really possible to flash a… Read more »

+1 bro, I didn’t mean to criticise you… Any way what you said is right, common man would not be able to do that, and with Samsung even my friend with S2+ has 2 versions i9105 and i9105P … but there are ROMS for both, separately … maybe its a problem with Sammy ..

By the way, are u there on any social sites?

*Its ok bro and I never said that you criticized infact you’re a really tech savvy guy at telecom talk.And yes most of the times I find different firmware for different variants of a particular model and you’re kind of lucky to have such cross-compatibility for you’re LG smartphone.

*No bro I ain’t on any social networking sites

*Thanks bro but I can’t say that I have in-depth knowledge etc I mean over here at Telecom Talk I agree that there are not many people except a selected few who are interested in tech that’s why you feel like that but I know where I stand at a international level.I visit websites like BGR/Zdnet etc and I find hundreds of people like me over there.Its at those websites that you can find some really really tech savvy people against whom I don’t stand a Chance.Its from those people that I try to learn and whatever I am able… Read more »

Hi guys. I think Samsung is going the Apple way. Though they r nt premium n snappy as Apple evn HTC. So d price of 51,500 is way too overpriced. I don’t knw wht circumstances made galaxy s5 30% more sales compared to its predecessor. But believe me it will not be a hit in india as d prices r too high. Again they came up with their home grown Exynos octa with all d cores running this time. Why don’t they release d snapdragon version? ? Seems they r arrogant or overconfident. Anyways I wud b happy to choose… Read more »

+1 *Even I agree that there is no must buy feature present in the Samsung S5. *As far as 30% increase is concerned I have a strong feeling that its because of the contract system followed in developed countries like U.S. And Europe where a majority of flagship sales take place. *See basically in U.s. And Europe once a person buys a flagship like S5 on contract from a particular operator they are tied to the particular operator for two years and have to mostly use the services of only that operator,The benefit of such a system is that the… Read more »

this figures are for entire globe which mainly contains Qualcomm proc with LTE chipset.
I bet the sales in India would have been 30% less than last yr S4 in first day of launch.

*Anyhow bro for expensive flagships like Samsung Galaxy S5 only international figures are taken into consideration.People don’t compare flagship sales within India because sales are generally too low.

*In India the S5 sales will boss only when Samsung drops the prices or launches buy back offers.
