Samsung sold 20 million Galaxy S4 devices in just two months
This makes the Galaxy S4 the fastest selling Android device. Within a month of its launched it had already gone past the 10 million mark. In comparison, the Samsung Galaxy S III took a 100 days to reach 20 million sales.
This report will obviously quiet down analysts who speculated that Samsung is having troubles selling as many Galaxy S4s as it would have liked. Those same analysts suggested that with the arrival of many S4 derivatives, Samsung might be watering down sales of its most profitable device, the flagship S4.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 launched internationally at the end of April and reached the 20 million sales milestone by the end of June. Interestingly, most of those sales have happened across the globe and in Korea the S4 sold half a million units.

actually its not old news, analysts has been saying this whole time that samsung is going downhill with the S4, but this article proves them wrong.

where are sammy haters now ? 20 million in 2 months, soon 30 million in 1Q, apple's best Q was 2012's Q4 and it sold 37 million iPhones, not iPhone 4S's, samsung will sell 30 million GS4's ONLY !!! faith in humanity... restored.

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah is RIGHT!!
"This report will obviously quiet down analysts who speculated that Samsung is having troubles selling as many Galaxy S4s as it would have liked." ....
by "Anal-ysts" do you mean iPhoneArena where everything possible is done to gloriFi' the iTunes glass-encased [NOT perfect] WiFi smartphone and bash everything that stomps on it??
By the 'vay, "Those same analysts suggested that with the arrival of many S4 DERIVATIVES," derivatives COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY OUT OF CONTEXT.

LOL I'm just constantly sick of people bashing the S4 when actually its one of the best if not best phone out there....

Come on, FANBOY! How many months S4 had launched? And they r just reporting the first 2 months, maybe the rest are WORST!
104. abdane (Posts: 473; Member since: 07 Oct 2011)

6. Jason2k13 (Posts: 626; Member since: 28 Mar 2013)

Mind explaining how when you have clicked on a article saying the S4 has sold over 20million....is it luck then? Go away Sony Fanboy!

Yet your the one who was saying "Sony #1"......idiot!
26. PunyPoop (Posts: 714; Member since: 18 Jan 2013)
What's wrong with saying Sony #1? Did he mentioned anything offensive? I can say, Apple #1, HTC #1, SONY #1, LG #1, and that's not offensive. WE LOVE QUALITY PRODUCTS! That's ALL!
29. WHoyton1 (Posts: 1619; Member since: 21 Feb 2013)
Hahaha quality products! Samsung create quality products just as much as these guys but your to far up the other OEMs and your fellow haters @as that you cxant see it now go back to your cave troll!

Take a weeks vacation. This good news is really killing you. Jealousy and hate is making you become in raged!
32. WHoyton1 (Posts: 1619; Member since: 21 Feb 2013)
And if they create so much better quality products why aren't they ahead in the market!? Or are you going to insult every person which buys a Samsung device now?

S4 is the best phone out there. People can bash it for the design however it doesn't look bad. Good job done Samsung. They definitely deserve to be on the top however competition is catching up and they need to up the game like they did with S2. I think they can definitely pull it off since they have resources to do it.

Ooooh! That's a major blow to Samsung haters! :'D many of them thought their favourite OEMs finally had a chance, lol!

Nice sales! But I don't think they will still surpass the iPhone 5 sales or the next gen iPhone unless they do something that would really be the next big thing. I am highly anticipating the note 3, because I can really see the huge and powerful changes in the note line rather than the s

for your information, S3 alone outsold iphone 5
56. fanboy1974 (Posts: 1106; Member since: 12 Nov 2011)
No one knows how many iPhone 5's were sold because Apple combined iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and iPhone 5. They just say that 30 million iPhone's were sold and that's it. Got to figure that iPhone 5 sales compared to it's older brothers are good but not great because Apple hasn't made a big deal about.
And when Apple updates the iPhone to iOS 7 starting with iPhone 4 how many people want to upgrade again if the phone just works (albeit slower)? Got to figure sooner or later Apple's plan to support old hardware actually hurts sales especially when the phone looks the same.

S4 and Note 3 = Batman and Robin
iPhone 5s = Lois Lane

Iphone 5s and Nexus 5= Bruce Lee and Micheal jai white
Galaxy S4 and Note 3= Jay z and Beyonce

Batman and Robin is Old Stuff :D

55. muhsen (Posts: 238; Member since: 07 Jun 2012)
I hope they r not counting all s4 derivatives as well (active,zoom,mini and others) within this 20 million because that will be called cheating
66. Jason2k13 (Posts: 626; Member since: 28 Mar 2013)
those phones only came out like what...1 weeks? 2 weeks? they would barely make any sales
58. Tre-Nitty (Posts: 460; Member since: 16 Nov 2010)
I love seeing people argue over things that have no direct bearing on their lives. Samsung, Sony, Apple, or heck even McDonald's love to see free advertising from random people who they dont have to pay. 20 million s4's sold and not 1 penny paid out to 1 phonearena loyalist!
62. WHoyton1 (Posts: 1619; Member since: 21 Feb 2013)
thats my job......making sure everyone gets free advertising.....got a local business.....contact me :D

I Wish You All the Best! 20 million people..... and enough said!!!!!!!!!!!

If they are "made up" they should show up in their quarterly reports but going by Samsung I doubt they ever want that kind of bad publicity. Just accept it, it sold 20 million just the way we accept how well the iPhone sells despite not being a huge fan.

I traded in my Blackberry Z10 courtesy of the T Mobile grace period due to the app selection (or lack there of) as well as the recent doom and gloom BB headlines. I didn't go for the iPhone or the HTC One because I needed an SD card slot so I chose the Galaxy S4. At first I wasn't interested in the S4 due to its Fisher Price styling but it looks much better in person than in the photos. It's also the Swiss Army knife of phone. So far I'm smitten.
90. Cha7520 (Posts: 206; Member since: 31 Oct 2010)
Who cares if they sold that many. My HTC ONE is a better phone, so I have nothing to be "J" over! lol
91. Andrewtst (Posts: 287; Member since: 25 Jan 2009)
How true this figure are, only Samsung know.
S4 in my country immediate drop few hundred after two weeks sales. And obvious difficult to see anyone holding it.
Last year at least 10 out of my friends buy S III, this year only one person getting the S4.
The retailer shop is never clouded as last year, my country active forum of phones where S4 thread is running extremely slow.
Everything show up S4 is not that famous as it suppose.

I knew they would sell well.. I can see everywhere in my country.. Well done Sammy

Can somebody from Phonearena's staff ban WHoyton1?
It's annoying to see that spam with 20 millions stuff again and again.To calm down,Apple sold around 120 millions of iPhones(5,4S,4) during the Q4 2012,Q1/Q2/Q3 2013.
I think his IQ is on the same level with a retard/monkey.
Congrats to Samsung for these sales,but we shouldn't forget how much money did SS spend in the last 2 month on marketing,my city is full of ads with S4.

What Samsung does better now than Apple is they market the product by showing off the product's capability.
