Samsung sells 1 million Galaxy S5 smartphones... in Germany
While Samsung hasn’t updated us on how many Galaxy S5 smartphones it shipped around the world since May (when the company said that 10 million units had been shipped in 25 days since launch), we know that it was hoping to ship at least 35 million units around the world this year. This doesn't seem to be an impossible goal, because Samsung today revealed that it sold (not just shipped) 1 million S5 handsets in Germany alone.

It’s the first time when Samsung talks about specific Galaxy S5 sales numbers for a country other than South Korea. To celebrate this, Samsung offered a €500 voucher to the 1 millionth Galaxy S5 buyer. We must say, Samsung picked a very interesting moment to celebrate this milestone: it’s the day when Apple released its brand new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus (with Germany being among the select markets to get both models from day one).

While it’s been around since late March, the Galaxy S5 is obviously still a great smartphone, though many users may (understandably) not be attracted to it that much, now that newer options are available - including, of course, Apple’s latest iPhones, or Samsung’s own Galaxy Note 4 (which can already be pre-ordered, though it won’t start shipping before October).

Listen iBoy :

The Cult of Apple has had a negative impact on the minds of many of its followers. It is largely believed that they brainwash people by telling them to 'think different'. Ironically it turns out that most of the cult's followers turn into mindless zombies believing everything their cult leader, Steve Jobs, tells them and as a result they rather 'think the same'.

Lmao.

They both copying, LoL.

If Apple copy samsung, they do good, run smooth and not laggy.

If samsung copy Apple, they have charged to the court. They can make metal frame phone for samsung but they will (never) be the same as iPhone run smooth and simple.

Admit it they are both good phones. Im guessing u have never had a samsung phone cos my samsung s3 is algoods sooo wtf are u going on about. also according to the phone arena reviews Iphone 6 has a dual core with a m8 coprocessor while samsung phones mainly have a quad core or octa core( galaxy alpha, note 4 international model) so in theory samsung is faster (i havent tested it out myself so i wouldnt know). I tend to like Samsung cos it has more features availabe and it is cheaper. Apple phones are sooo much more expensive and they only have a one year waranty now, whereas all the other manufacturers give two year warranty. there are phones out there that is as good as and better than the iphone and are cheaper .

iPhone sales have always outnumbered Samsung Galaxy phones sales, and why is that? Well now if you possessed a bit of knowledge of the world around you and had an IQ more than that of a programmed droid, you would have heard about Occam's razor, which says in event of facing two equally possible solutions for a problem, the simplest one is most likely the true one. Applying that to this case, we see iPhone is selling well simply because it is superior in terms of everything a normal daily use cares about compared to cheap plastic samsung phones. Sadly, it is something androcolouses dont understand, thats why they are so butheart that they spend half a day just commenting under every apple articles, showing their buthurtness and trying to convince yourself that you have made the right choice by going android while apple is clearly winning the competition.

The worst thing in your iPhone 6/6+ is multitasking,.......and your point "cheap plastic" Samsung added the best of both worlds plastic back and metal frame I love to be able to change my battery and have up to 160GB (32GB internal storage+128GB SD Card) and better signal reception that's the freedom that samsung gives you iBoy.

Samsung stopped using plastic backs like last year when the note 3 came out. U must be very outdated with your facts if u call samsung phones plastic cos they are using metal and soft touch polycarbonate. Also android fans arnt the only people to comment under articles. Look at u. U are an apple fan and yet u are commenting on a samsung article showing ur "buthurtness". Wat a hypocrit.

Not everyone has heard of this "Occams razor" infintymurano2012. Just cos u know this principle doesnt make ur IQ any higher. Let me ask a question to everyone in this chat. Who here has heard of the bloody Occams razor? Apparently according to this hypocrit We need to apply the Occams razor principle to see which phone is better. wat a load of s***
