Lots of British users are upgrading to Samsung's Galaxy S5 from an iPhone, says report

66

According to The Telegraph, a well-known trade-in website in the UK called CompareMyMobile reported the following: almost 38% of British users upgrading to Samsung’s new Galaxy S5 online through trade in programs are former iPhone owners.

Reportedly, CompareMyMobile “witnessed a 210 per cent rise in customers trading in their iPhone 4S” for the Galaxy S5. Other popular smartphones that are being traded in for the S5 by a significant number of users include Samsung’s own Galaxy S III, and the iPhone 5S.

Unfortunately, exact numbers (i.e. how many users have actually traded in their iPhones for an S5) aren’t provided. Still, this report shows that Samsung can steal some customers away from Apple. However, similar things are likely to happen when Apple releases its new iPhone 6 later this year - but then we should see Galaxy handsets traded in for iPhones.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 is available in about 125 countries around the world since April 11. It is Samsung’s flagship smartphone for this year, and obviously offers improvements over the Galaxy S4, including a new Snapdragon 801 processor, a 16MP rear camera, fingerprint scanner, and a heart rate monitor.
