Samsung Galaxy S4 sales slumped to 5 million units in August, still topped the ranks

Despite still being the best-selling smartphone in the traditionally slow August, the Galaxy S4 sell-through rate has dipped to 5 million units then, which might have prompted Samsung to speed up the development and release of the Galaxy S5...

All 3 are great companies, good to see Nokia feature phones in the list with smartphones. :)
Next time I would like to see Sony also.

Wait 5 million in the slowest month of a half-yo phone is bad? Not sure Rival One or Rival Z sold as much in their entire life.

Right! S4 is on top (or close if you combine iPhones), so that's a bad thing?

How do we know sales slumped if you aren't giving us the target? 5 Million in the slowest month sounds pretty good to me.

Well, you know sales slumped if they are significantly lower than preceding months. A slump had nothing to do with target sales.

The amazing thing is that the iPhone 5 sales should have slowed down to a trickle with the expectation of the new model arriving next month...and that 'trickle' was still more than any other phone bar the still very new Galaxy S4.

'Nuff said.

Weird thing is GS4 (International) version and iPhone 5 (16GB/32GB). Why not combine all versions of GS4 and all iPhone 5 sales?

LOL! WOW! Well done Samsung, they are the ONLY Androids in that top 10, this is going to make the Samsung haters super mad!

If 5million sold is bad then most other OEMs are doing an awful job, haha!

I'm more surprised that the HTC One did not make the top 10.

This is a BIG lie.Apple sold over 30 millions of iPhones in 3 months-so at least 7-8 millions i5 per month.
S3 is still the best selling android device eveer!S3 is the best! ))

With talk of the S5 already in January, who would buy the S4. Not me for sure.

Oh man, and Nokia?
Lumias nowhere to be seen!
Even their supposed best selling model, the "blockbuster" Lumia 520 has been outsold by three Ashas!

Btw, I am blown away by the fact that the Note 2 has been outselling a Galaxy S3.
It gives some serious material for market analysts.
