Samsung Galaxy Note5 and S6 edge+ are selling faster than the Note 4 and Note Edge (at least in Korea)
Samsung earlier this month announced and launched the Galaxy Note5 and Galaxy S6 edge+, two extra-large Android smartphones (or phablets, if you prefer) that come to succeed last year's Note 4 and Note Edge. Of course, the S6 edge+ isn't a true successor to the Note Edge, since it doesn't have an S Pen stylus, but still: it's Samsung's newest extra-large handset to sport a curved display.

According to Korean publication Yonhap News, the Galaxy Note5 and S6 edge+ are off to a much better start in South Korea compared to the Note 4 and Note Edge. Reportedly, over 75,000 units of the Note5 and S6 edge+ have been sold in three days in Samsung's home country. Last year, at launch, only about 10,000 Note 4 and Note Edge units were sold daily. Apparently, the Note5 and S6 edge+ are helping Samsung control 70% of the South Korean mobile market.

For now, we don't know how well Note5 and S6 edge+ sales are going in the US and other markets, but we hope we'll find out soon. Meanwhile, check out our Galaxy Note5 review and Galaxy S6 edge+ review for more about Samsung's latest super-sized Android smartphones.

If you play with the Note 5 for long enough, you want it. Even if you hate phablets. Haha I was close but I managed to just avoid pulling the trigger.

They said the same thing about the S6/s6 edge.....

Meh 45 million by June is pretty good. Not iPhone good but Samsung doesn't have a heard of nctx77's that blindly buy their products. The investors had ludicrous estimates and the phones costing a bit more hurt earnings a bit, but they would have to cheap out and rape their customers like Apple do in order to improve their earnings. That's not how they roll.

I know it's selling well in the U.S.A. as well. When you go to tmobile you cant even play with it because the line was so long.lol

Again, the same with the S6/S6 edge. Talk to me when it's sustained after a month. Heck, I even heard stories like that with the S5. Sammy was projecting crazy numbers for the year. Then the earnings came out........

Sammy was making these projections? Um, I don't think they projected anything. Lol

so just because analyst were expecting more from the S6/S6 edge means Samsung is gown down hill? trust trolls like you to believe analyst when it comes to Samsung. Samsung is doing well with the S6 and it was launched in less countries compared to the S5.

You are aware the S5 sold well over 50M right? Also its still selling even a year later, especially since not even Apple had a phone equal to the S5 and the S5 is a year old. The S5 had a very fast start, then yes the sales did fall off after 6 months. Mostly because the iPhone comes out roughtly 6 months after the S is released. Of course also the Note comes out around that time too. The Note is a BETTER S with a Pen. First off get this factual point into your stupid pea brain. Apple doesn't set the sales bar for the success of NAY product. Consider Samsung sells 2x's as many phones as Apple is good eeough for them. It doesn't matter if the S or the Note specifically outsells the iPhone. No one with a Samsung phone is stuck with being forced to keep buying them if they dotn want too. Unlike with Apple. If you invest a heavy amount of money, you cant take what you buy outside. While at least with Android, even if you moved to Windows or Android, all the music and movies will work on those platforms and you 100% access to the data for the exact same app as long as the app supports serverside capabilities.. According to facts, the Note and S together since the Note 3 and S4 came out have sold together over 100M phones each year. That means fool, when Samsung reports it sold 300M phones in a year, 1/3 of them are flagship, 1/3 are mid-ranged and 1/3 are cheapos. Consider it too Apple from 2007 until 2015 which si 8 years to have a quarter where they sold 75M phones, while Samsung has been selling 80M phones per quarter since 2011, the only hate you should be having is the fact Apple is f**king you over every year with their lame spec'd mid-range phone that costs more than Samsung's phones.

I moved 4 lines to T-Mobile. I pre-ordered my Note 5's and got them next day. I found out the hard way I couldn't exchange them at the store. Anyway, 2 of the lines I didn't do online, because I was waiting for family members to give me money for theirs. On Saturday, I went too 6 T-Mobile Stores. The very first one I went too had a note on the door that the Note 5 and S6 Edge Plus were sold out. I went to more stores and they only had very few 32GB SG Edge Plus' and I was simply looking for one 64GB. The very last store I went too only had the S6 Edge Plus in black for a 64GB and I wanted the Gold one. Best Buy was the only place that had some, but the line was long. Everyone in line was waiting to get the T-Mobile version of the latest wit exception of a few on Verizon. One guy said he went to 3 VZW stores and they were all sold out of the S6 Edge Plus. So my sister settled for the 32GB S6 Edge Plus since I couldn't get a 64GB and I got my mom a 32GB S6 Edge as she didn't want the larger size. I am sure at least in top markets like LA, NY and Chi-Town where I live, items are selling fast. I am assuming Samsung can produce roughly 5-10M phones in a month but considering you need to deliver too 230+ carriers, plus retailers and others, the supply will go fast. The world is a big place.

S.Korea really doesnt need to care about expandable memory, their internet speed is the best in the planet.. they can stream whatever they want, and cloud store whatever they have

A trial period isn't a sell until the person actually buys...right? Are you really that stupid? Oh WAIT...you're an Apple loyalist...so that's an automatic yes. Oh and no, I am not insulting you. It's not an insult when its a fact.

No suprise to see this sales in Korea. Especially after building the last line of phones with premium design and make them less heavy. We'll see how it performs in US...And hopefully in Europe
