Samsung Galaxy S II - “only” 5 million units sold so far
posted by Nick T. / Jul 27, 2011, 3:37 AM
Bear in mind that this number reflects only the amount of Galaxy S II smartphones shipped to retailers and carriers, or in other words, units that have probably not all made their way to the pockets of end customers. Nevertheless, it is quite impressive that Samsung's flagship is actually selling faster than its predecessor – the Galaxy S, which had sold “only” 3 million units over the same amount of time after its debut.
Verizon could be the first carrier to bring the smartphone to American soil, yet AT&T and Sprint will get their own versions soon after.

Samsung Galaxy S II is not a perfect smartphone, you just have to test, play and compare it first before you buy it. But I love the specs. and I will play with it when it arrive at the Verizon Store. Samsung Galaxy S II have only 8mp camera while other smartphones go up to 13mp, may be Samsung think phone camera is not a stand alone camera or camcorder and people seem to change their phone every 2 years while stand alone camera people keep it for a very long time.

Because we all know the megapixel is huge when deciding which camera is better on a phone. The HTC Evo 4G has an 8 megapixel compared to the iPhone 4's 5 megapixel, but anybody who has used both will tell you that the iPhones camera is far more superior than the Evo's. I think hes referring to one of the windows phones that will be coming out?

Yeah I think they say that anything above 5 mp is mostly a waste for average point and click uses. The higher the mp, the smaller the area you can crop and enlarge with out perceived image loss/pixelation. The more fancy editing you can do... which most people don't do. It is sad but unfortunately the uneducated consumer (regarding mp/cameras), drive investment into expensive but low quality high MP, when they could be actually improving the lens and other junk to improve quality.

CMOS is an acronym for Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor. On your computer, it hold you BIOS or basic input/output system. The language for the keyboard, mouse, monitors, etc. I guess since the camera is an input source, that's why corps is saying the size matters. I knew that A+ training would come in hand someday.

Also, take note that only 3 million units made its way to users. The other 2 million is only "shipped" to stores. So a portion of it may have been sold, and a portion of it are still sitting in stores.

Don't forget that one year ago, activations for ANDROID smartphones were 160000 a day. 2 months ago, we had 550000 activations a day announced (just 4 weeks after announcing 500000 activations a day). We certainly should have much more than 600000 ANDROID activations a day now (and at least 95% are smartphones). So it is not a so great performance. And in market share, SGS2 should be much much lower than Galaxy S.

Hats off to Samsung, Android phones are gaining popularity. Still Samsung has its competition with HTC, Motorola and others making great devices. Android device security is important – I recommend 2x mobiledevicemanager Download at http://www.2x.com/mobiledevice
or from the Android Market
