Yea and half of them wait 8 weeks+ to get their device they ordered on that weekend. I know because every year I order at least 10 iPhone for the office and we get some right away and we've wait as long as 10 weeks to get the rest. Who cares when Apple did it in a weekend. Pre-order sales are lame because not everyone will get the phone right away. I dont even count Samsung pre-order sales either. Both can take however many pre-orders they want. But everyone isnt gonna get a phone within a few days. Samsung has moved 20M S8's from their product line to re-sellers and carriers, how many are just sitting I don't know. Samsung in the past 6 years has sold 1B smartphone 2 times. It took Apple 10 years. So theer is that. Try harder!

20M as a guess? lol Show us hard number. Because I can guess they've actually sold half that amount and the rest are just sitting in boxes on shelves. After all Target's and Best Buy actually are still selling older models and not the newer ones. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/samsung-galaxy/samsung-galaxy-s7/pcmcat748301800171.c?id=pcmcat748301800171 So if I see older models on the shelves, then the newer ones aren't selling either. Samsung may have shipped them, but retailers aren't selling them...lol If they were selling like it is claimed, then no one would still be selling the S7. Everyone would be on the S8 now. Shipping for Samsung means sold. Sold for me, is I want to know how many people actually own one. Samsung knows how many owners by product registration from purchase. Samsung isn't telling because they have sold 20M. .

The S7 is only 1 year old vs the original Apple Watch is 2 years old and has been replaced with 2 models. Even Apple isn't selling the series 1 and is replacing them with a newer one.

"After all Target's and Best Buy actually are still selling older models and not the newer ones" You mean just like BB is still selling iPhone 6s's.

That's about 5M per month, which is about how many they make. That means sales are as expected. Samsung has basically always made 5M Galaxy S per month for the main model and the Note has a production run of about 3M

PA- you might also want to link to this article that shows how well Samsung is doing in the US of A. They manage to oust Apple from the No1 spot by selling more this go around. http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_holds_the_lead_for_global_smartphone_shipments_in_q2_2017-news-26534.php So much for the Analyst who kept predicting Samsung was selling less device this year and was on it way out. Also for those Analyst that also keep saying Apple is delay or on there way out as well -they will eating crow come September. Both Apple and Samsung are here for a while as they enjoy their symbiotic relationship to one another My point is analyst are no better than chimps throwing darts at a board.
