For those of you who were worried about Samsung on the heels of disappointing sales of the flagship Samsung Galaxy S4, you can officially stop worrying. While not sales to end users, Samsung has shipped 10 million units of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 phablet in two months. Now this is certainly not the fastest moving Galaxy model, but this is the fastest selling Galaxy Note phablet to date...

There's obviously a DOUBLE STANDARD -- when Apple sold 9 million units of its it new devices during launch weekend, the critics are saying Apple products suck since ONLY 9 million units were sold. Then they proceed to point out everything that is bad about say the 5S since it only comes with 1 GB of RAM and how the the 5C is so cheap since it's made out of plastic. How iPhones are just iToys.

Now, Samsung ships 10 millions of the Note 3 in two months and the same critics are saying what a great job Samsung is doing.

Except most of us take these results with a grain of salt. How many of those (and these) devices were actually sold to customers?

Successful devices don't always sell the best.

i'm sure i'm getting trolled.. but here goes nothing:

1. it's relative.. with Apple's standard, it's not so amazing. just in this article, they talk about how sales of the Note III is so much better than the previous models. so yes, in a way, it is a double standard because people's expectation of Apple is higher.

2. Apple does not compete with any other company when it comes to iOS.. if you want apple products, u buy an iPhone. Note III competes with.. well, just about every freaking phone that's worth mentioning.

You need to argue like with like. 9M iphones are from 4s, 5, 5c and 5s and here this article is only talking about 1 model.
You will fine PA goes both way more so for talking apple up than double standard.

Just be happy with your devices that you have chosen rather than crying double standard.

not sure what is your definition of DOUBLE STANDARD, but Note 3 and those hopeless 5S / 5C are in totally different categories. its like comparing one of the best mobile devices of 2013 with some typical products created by some American corporation and supported by a particular group of...... well, you know the group.

You are absolutely wrong. The 9 million in one weekend was for the iPhone 5s and the 5c. You see how you tried to twist that. Dude the 5s sold roughly 7 million in one weekend by itself. The 5c sold around 2 mil. Total sales for the quarter included all iphone models, not the launch of the new iPhones. On top of that, those numbers did not include china mobile, which has damn near a billion people. Samsung phones are sold on China mobile.

No need to twist anything as I read it somewhere that that apple does not break out the models. I maybe be wrong if that is the case it is still 5s and 5c which is not like to like as per the original post.

What has china got to do with this argument about double standard.

Chill out man and be happy with what your devices you purchased and basically outlining the weak argument on DOUBLE STANDARD.

Yes, total double standards everywhere but they usual favor Apple.

Apple having only a few phones to update compared to Android having 50 jillion phones to update = Apple being awesome with updates and Android sucking. That is only one of the double standards in the itard staple. They have like 50 jillion double standards in their favor.

Galaxy Note 3 deserve the Best Phone for 2013 and hook up to the multimedia dock which include HDMI to 27" monitor, mouse and keyboard, it virtually is a mini PC on the go.

Only dissappointment is on the SOFTWARE side. I toggle between Dolphin, Firefox and Maxthon to get as much as Desktop experience but it is not there yet such as simultaneous running tabs. Android chrome needs to support flash before I even touch it.

Sammy has the upper hand in the market right now so they are not worrying about not so much selling phones and concentrating on their hot selling current phones as per the demand.

I've noticed a trend with Samsung. Every time there is bad new, they come out with these shipped numbers to try and cover up what was said earlier. I call BS. The same thing happened to the galaxy gear. We had these same big numbers with the S4, then it faded. Sammy is desperate... REAL DESPERATE!!!!

In this imaginary world of samsung: china, Japan and South Korea are southeast Asian countries. I suggest USA is in southeast Africa.

It's called "PHABLET"... And you probably meant what you said in a sarcastic way, but i don't believe you own one. :/

I wish you just learn to read.
Like I said, I wasn't thinking anything bad with the notion.

And I do own one, and like I said, I love it.

Note 3 is a Beast of a phone. After doing some customization on my N9005, it is working smooth and snappy. After Note 3 my phone 5 looks puny and strains my eyes.
