They did the same last year and guess how many models they sold.

A whole lot less than what they were hoping. After the initial rush, it faded fast. Remember they said they were going to sell 100 million LOL!

So...? 45+ million is far better than any other OEM besides Apple combined.

Samsung never said they would sell 100m..those were a rumors by the media and i think the galaxy S5 proved just how trustworthy those can be...

63.5 million Galaxy S4 have been sold till date according to the International Business Times. Now thats quite a number, considering the fact that its been around in d market for only 10 months

I think the S5 will outsell the S4 hands down, while it's not a complete departure from the previous designs, it will capture a lot of sales from people coming off of traditional 2-year contracts in the united states with the Galaxy S3, and probably some iPhone 4s, and 5 users since we are at least 6-8 months out from the iPhone 6. The Galaxy S5 does offer some new distractions like water-resistance, and the fingerprint sensor, so for 90% of the consumers (not us), it will seem "All new".

i second that sammy is very desperate. the s5 is just an s4 with more bezels and BAND-AID on the back and btw i have a note 3 and its a great phone alot better than the s5 AKA S4 but i'm honest unlike most samsung users when i don't like something i admit it.

I have complained plenty about The GS5 but how is that desperate? If they think they could have used the money in a better way they would have.... Look up the definition of desperation and this is pretty damn far from it. In fact, they aren't even in any threatening situation yet..

they should have made a better phone with this money than giving free useless gifts. the only phone i give credit for to samsung which they did an amazing job is the note 3 the rest is just disappointment

They made a pretty damn good phone. It's head to head with the Z2 with specs and is worthy of a 2014 flagship title.

I agree but that still isn't desperation. Desperation would be making the crazy phone we all wanted. Smaller than the GS4 QHD screen Gorilla glass 4 64 bit exynos 4000 mah battery 7.6 mm And then selling it for less than a Nexus device and losing money on each handset. That would be desperate... This is just them relaxing and releasing what they want and putting money into what they want. The opposite of desperate....

just because the package is worth $575 doesn't mean that samsung is paying $575 per package - they will have some bulk deal and which costs them a fraction of the price. If they really were willing to spend $575 per packae they'd be gifting Samsung smart watches instead.

If you read the forums actually instead of making stupid comments about users, is that many samsung users including myself have very publicly slated this devices. Lots of users are not happy with the s5 so wind your neck in..

dont worry, they're not as desperate as Apple, HTC and Sony. so keep calm and get S5.

They need to give a better deal then that, then again maybe I just have a different preference on things I like

5. PapaSmurf

Posts: 10457; Member since: May 14, 2012

Because $575 in freebies is a bad deal...dot.

As if there isn't enough bloat on a GS5.

That's better but not great. I am using an 8GB N4 and am chugging along just fine so I guess it doesn't matter much to me. I think the usable space on the N4 is 5.8GB of 8GB. But it is a Nexus.

17. highwaysnobbery

Posts: 55; Member since: Feb 19, 2013

My bad. The usable space is 5.67 of 8GB.

Now multiply that by 2 and tell me how much of a difference that is.. Nexus warriors smh..

It would be 16-(8-5.67)=13.67.

I am sure they are paying those companies much less. Those companies get free advertising too. Samsung is probably not paying them 1/5 of that. Unlike Apple, they don't think software costs more than hardware.

Why do you feel the need to troll Samsung articles?
