Samsung Galaxy S 4 logs record pre-regs with Carphone Warehouse, four times the S III

European mobile retailer Carphone Warehouse issued a press release that the interest it sees in the Samsung Galaxy S 4 pre-registration is unprecedented. The chain has registered no less than four times the rate it logged for Samsung's last year bestseller - the Galaxy S III.

The third Galaxy flagship edition last year broke all registration records as well, and now its successor proves how ingrained in the minds of consumers Samsung has become. There is formidable competition this year, though, with the Xperia Z, HTC One and the Optimus G Pro, so it's early to tell whether the final sales results will break records again.

samsung can do it but i dont think google will allow it,google dont want the whole android system collapse,as much as possible they want a fairly distributed growth and income...that is why sammy is inclined to release a TIZEN beast this september with premium material and specs.

fishy, another samsung's trick to fool the s sheep. 4 times more says pretty much nothing. Lets say last year we have 1 registration, this year we have 4, thats a god damn 4 times increase. throw out a real number, y just "4 times more", 4 times from how much we got no idea.
And BTW, this is only pre registration, its not even preorder. Anyone without a real intent to buy d phone can still preregister.

Sales are impacted by various factors which include : perception of a company/brand in the minds of the people, how good the device is, marketing. However, a best-selling device may not be the most innovative or vice-versa. Sales tell only a part of the story.

The key word here is MAY NOT but that doesn't rule out sales being a great indicator of quality. Something you Samsung hating HTC loving people seem to conveniently ignore.

I don't know how many times Peter Chou and his fan boy posse attributes Samsung's success to marketing without a shred of evidence that suggests marketing being the driving force.

Either way, HTC doesn't have enough money to control the marketing variable so he should just STFU and look for other ways. Which is exactly what Samsung did when HTC and Apple were kicking the GS1's ass. They never once complained about sales and came up with the legendary GS2.

Oooooh, that's going to have the Samsung haters rather mad.

This proves that Functionality, Updates, a fast yet fluid UI, the best internal hardware, and great innovations trump Looks :) great job by Samsung.

Four times the S3 rate? Seems that in these troubled times money still grows on trees...

Don't see why the Optimus G Pro is on that list. That infringed design is nothing close to be considered "competition".

Oh I will so enjoy sitting back and watching this device selling in boat loads and making haters scratch their hollow skulls.
