Samsung has sold more than 40 million units of the Samsung Galaxy S4
posted by Alan F. / Oct 23, 2013, 7:51 PM
Samsung put some lofty expectations on the device even before it was launched. Back in February, analyst Peter Misek from Jefferies said that the Korean manufacturer was planning on selling 100 million units of the Galaxy S4. At the time, 60 million units of the Samsung Galaxy S III had been purchased. The executive probably would not have released the figure if it was a total too far behind Samsung's own expectations. With this thought in mind, don't expect an early arrival of the Galaxy S5.
Shin also addressed another issue, the problem Samsung has been having with batteries that swell. Earlier this year, this happened to a Samsung Galaxy S III. Some carriers are now estimating that 30% of their customers with the Samsung Galaxy S4 are experiencing a swollen battery. This could lead to an explosion or fire. The manufacturer has introduced a free replacement program for affected customers. Shin says that Samsung's supplier is working with it to prevent these problems from happening to future supplies of batteries.

At least Microsoft is happy. It makes how much per android sold. 40 million times whatever dollar is pimping at its finest level.

Actually, it is MS's only major revenue for their mobile unit. Last quarter they announced a profit from mobiles sales and licensing (they mixed them to mask the sadness). The majority of those profits came from the licensing and we all know how well the surface did.

In comparison to the iPad Mini with retina display, the note 3 has a really small display for web surfing.

So for all those reports and people saying the S4 isn't selling, how hard was it to read this article?

Its selling, but they were expecting complete dominance. In 6 months though, that isn't bad seeing as the iPhone 5 sold about 90 million through its entire life (sadly too short) and this isn't even combining the various S4 spinoffs like the active and so on. Plus the Note 3 on top of that should make it very lucrative for Samsung seeing as how that will probably sell 20-30 million as well. All in all, Samsung now rivals iPhone sales by themselves which should be a somewhat good thing.

The problem is Sammy release too many different versions and peoples dont know which one to buy. Also what different betweens all these versions and people will get tired to decide. S4 - Snapdragon 600 S4 - Exynos 5410 S4 Mini S4 Active S4 Zoom Not same as S2/S3 that only had 1 version, until the operators started with 4G/LTE and then comes the 4G/LTE versions.
