LG G3 sales three times higher than the Galaxy S5 in Korea

LG G3 sales three times higher than the Galaxy S5 in Korea
LG's new flagship phone, the G3, is apparently being bought like hot cakes in its homeland, where it went on sale last week. Korean media is reporting that customers chug 25, 000-30, 000 LG G3 units daily, and this figure is about two times higher than what the previous G2 flagship warranted.

Even more interesting, the G3 evidently outsells the flagship of the other local juggernaut by a factor of three, as the Galaxy S5 sold about 7000-8000 pieces per day in its initial launch period. Of course, the G3 now has the novelty factor on its side, too, plus bragging around with the first Quad HD resolution panel on a brand-name smartphone doesn't hurt either.

Still, the source clarifies that LG's marketing splurges are much smaller than the PR sprees of Samsung we've all seen here and there, so outing a phone whose specs speak for themselves, has been of a paramount importance for the company. With the G3, LG might have hit the nail on the head in that department, it seems, at least in the mother land.
