Samsung Galaxy S4 shipments reach 23.4 million units

Samsung Galaxy S4 shipments reach 23.4 million units
The growth of smartphones has only continued this past quarter as a total 221 million units were shipped and the total number of smartphones delivered by manufacturers is expected to reach a whopping 928 million units, according to analysts from TrendForce.

As demand for high end smartphones has clearly slowed down (despite what Apple’s Tim Cook says), now low and mid-range devices in the $150 to $450 segment are becoming more and more popular.

Samsung alone managed to ship nearly a third of all smartphones on the planet this quarter. The Korean company recorded 71 million shipped smartphones, a new record. The Galaxy S4 on its part sold in the impressive 23.4 million units, according to TrendForce. That’s slower than the bravest projections, but still a great number.

We should not overlook the growth of China. The largest phone market saw its Huawei, ZTE, Lenovo, CoolPad and others grow sales 44% this past quarter.

"The teachers have iPhones, The Parents have iPhones, The Grand parents have iPhones" - ouch. :) Yeah, Sammy likes to mock that in it's commercials. Don't think youngsters give half a damn if it's a nicely curved, metallic build marvel, they care about what the device can do, and if it's different enough from the "establishment" (which would be the iPhone).

Astounding and really not a surprise to say the least as Samsung brand is getting a heavy recognition not due just to it's marketing push but because of a trend among the young middle school and high school kids.( this is my experience working in the north east school system IT ) As the kids want to differentiate themselves from the everyone else . They have abandon Apple fro Samsung. Why? I ask them them why they have S3s & S4s and the frequent answer is The teachers have iPhones, The Parents have iPhones, The Grand parents have iPhones. (Jay -Z now has a S4-LoL) its not cool anymore. Apples success was to Successful ( Like Rim, Microsoft, Nokia, Intel, etc... ) an is now seen as the old persons phone. Samsung should enjoy it for as long as they can as when they become very successful they to will seem like the old mans brand and someone else will be the cool young kid brand. The old adage that every dog has it's day- Nokia had its time, Rim had its Time, Microsoft had its time, Intel had it's time, Apple had it's time ( still there but the decline is happening) Samsung is having its time now ( and it will pass ) nothing last forever in this temporal world.

Very well put, I don't really see WP taking android's place in the market but some time or another something else will come along and offset things... And we should all be looking forward to it.

What is your deal with Nokia? you seem to mention them everytime in a negative way. But listen with all your useless Quad Core's which you can only use for games Nokia makes Far and I mean Far better phones than samsung! They have Premium phones By far the best camera tech Awesome designs The best customer service Plus they offer us something different in WP! At least I will buy I phone that stands out from the crowd and on that's used by millions of people! BTW You idiots seems to forget this is Nokia's rebuilding phase! We all expected it to be like this! Where were you a couple of years back when Nokia had almost 80% of all smartphones on the planet? It just shows how happy and glad you idiots are Nokia did not go with android then what? Crapsung would have then do same like they did with apple and copy the hell out of Nokia! Crapsungs time won't last long at the top! especially for a company that can't innovate!

um theoretical physics states this as true however not in a parallel universe, in our own just really far away, due to finite possibilities meaning that everything is happening an infinite amount of times like im writing this an infinite amount of times somewhere and you reading this an infinite amount of times somewhere.-not a physicist just a highschool student ;)
