Samsung’s launch of the Galaxy S5 has been met with a lot of mixed feelings. While many of us expected the company to launch a complete redesign of what we’ve seen in the past couple of years, its iterative update has disappointed many. Couple that with the recent complaints about the phone underperforming in its camera, and you would assume that Samsung is having a hard time selling these phones, though reality seems quite different.
New reports point to the company breaking a new record by shipping 10 million Galaxy S5 units in just 25 days. Just to give you an idea, it took Samsung 27 days to do the same with the Galaxy S 4, 50 days with the Galaxy S III, 5 months with the Galaxy S II, and 7 months with the original Galaxy S. The only thing you have to keep in mind with these figures though, is that these are device shipments, and this doesn’t necessarily mean that these phones all went to their actual or future customers.
We’re still waiting to see what the official numbers are, even though Samsung isn’t famous for actually providing specifics on every different variant of its Galaxy line-up, so stay tuned.
