T-Mobile collects record 100K registrations for the Samsung Galaxy S5

T-Mobile collects record 100K registrations for the Samsung Galaxy S5
A tweet from T-Mobile's CMO Mike Sievert, shows how popular the Samsung Galaxy S5 is. The carrier had put up a registration page where those interested in the phone could leave information, including an email address, and receive news when the flagship model is ready for pre-orders. After two days, the carrier has racked up 100,000 registrations for the handset. For T-Mobile, that is a record number of registrations after such a short time period.

Of course, not everyone interested in the Samsung Galaxy S5 registered, and not all of those who did will end up buying the unit. But it does show that interest in the model remains high. Some call it an evolutionary rather than revolutionary change. Some, though, will point to the fingerprint scanner embedded in the home button, the heart rate monitor and the IP67 certification as new features available on the phone. The latter means that the phone is waterproof.

We expect to see the Samsung Galaxy S5 launched on April 11th. Of course, there is no subsidizing pricing for T-Mobile customers, so we will have to await further word from the carrier as to how much they plan on charging for the phone.

It would actually be hilarious if Sammy released it's metal phone with outstanding specs. HTC will regret that they mocked the S5, comparing it to a bandage (which it looks like) cause it will wreak havoc on them.

U read the report too? You think there will be a premium?

posted on 27 Feb 2014, 01:26

55. Tizen007 (Posts: 575; Member since: 07 Jan 2014)


hope so. The premium makes sense because there is a huge gap between the GS and the GN series. Also in a business point of view the gs5 and the premium could wipe out other competitors allowing them access to a huge profit this year. Sammy also has a reputation of having high tech hardwares. Their design dept. has a problem but Sammy is not stupid enough to give up that reputation.

Looks like the so called "flop" of a phone wasnt such a flop after all. The S5 is going to have great sales thats for sure. It might not be the best upgrade that Samsung could have done but it is enough to be considered a great phone. So the haterz can shut up.

@LiyanaBG, in my country, Ivory Cost (Africa) there are about at most 3 or 5 Samsung ads in whole the country but Samsung is the undisputed King. I visited Burkina Faso and Sierra Leone recently, I haven't seen even one Samsung ad, but nobody can compete with Samsung here.
The haters should star thinking that because they don't like something everybody should think the same way.

I will not preregister if I don't want to buy the phone. Every year the same old story. To me galaxy s2 s3 s4 brand sell. So s5 no different.

Samsung actually make me a fan of touch wiz by the amount of gimmick feature they have thrown in. Just need one must have is enough for me to stay with touch wiz. Smart stay; multi windows; s pen. Can't leave home without it.

nobody said it will be a flop. it is surely ugly but everybody expected it to outsell all other android flagships, even all of sony, htc, and lg's sales combined.

Would people stop trash talking the S5? This phone has all the new features it needs to stay competitive, plus it's water proof, plus the camera seems extra great! I'm pretty interested. The public is obviously very interested.
