It's called, "they released new phones". Also, what you fail to realize is that the S7 came out in Quater 1 this year. The S6 came out in quarter 2. Of course the first quarter numbers were up YOY. They released a freaking flagship during that quarter that they did not in the previous year.

April 2013-2014 was by far the best year for Samsung . The sleek and stylish S4 and the insanely powerful Note 3 , for that time , set the mobile world ablaze. I am sure that is the time when ( along with many other factors) Apple must have decided to up the display size .

The S7 duo's sales of 30 million in 5 months is still a great number since the market is really saturated right now, While in no way taking away in the credit of S4 which was really awesome though, no wonder Sammy was able to sell 70 million of them. There were a number of incredible new features that were very first in the industry, namely, Air view/gesture(what the 3D Touch wanted to be), Smart Scroll, Smart Pause, Sound and Shot, Drama Shot, Eraser, Adapt Display, Smart Switch and many more.

Exactly. The Note 3 with the S4 alone sold 120M units in 12 months. Not bad after the S3 sold 50M and the Note 2 sold 20th year prior. The S5 could have been a hit too, if the bloggersphere didn't hate it so much. Even though it had considerable improvemen's over the S4. Note 4 wasn't bad either. Samsung doesn't have to repeat that sales year. The still make the best phones right now. So based on these numbers, they are selling as fast as they can make thrm. Because we know both Apple and Samsung have the capacity to make about 5M phones per month of the one model. So the phone has been on sell 5 months and we are 1 week into July. That 1M+ phones per week just for the S alone. Who else is selling that many phones per day of just one single model?

Well this just shows to Samsung what the micro sd card slot changes how popular there phones can be,Just stop copying Apple phones and concentrate on your own phones,just bring back the Removable battery or F.m or Dab Radio and Apple will really Struggle more

Very little amount of folks care about radio. Removal battery is well getting there with inclusion of quicker charging, wireless charging and higher capacity. I was very big on replaceable battery for many years but realized that external battery just works better

I reject this notion that removable batteries are something more than a tiny niche of buyers care about. If that was the case, LG should have been doing much better. In the last two years, they have basically had a monopoly on phones from recognizable brands with removable batteries. That hasn't done anything to improve their sales.

Dude are you serious the LG V 10 was their best yet!! I gave up a stupid iPhone 6S plus for that and glad I did too

20. Furbal unregistered

I hope they dont screw up the v10 follow up. Keep it the same, upgrade the internals, make the second screen oled.

If Samsung isn't strong enough, it's wouldn't be the world number one today. All of its effort in R&D really pays off. This is the real innovative company that the world cannot lack. #SamsungIsEveryThing! #ProudOfGreatJoseon!

Estimated 25 Millions(Actually 15 Millions if Buy One Get Two plays here) 4 months. Apple sells 40+ Millions every 3 months. Watch Samesmuck goes out of business when people get tired of the gimmicky EDGY USELESS FEATURE.

Too bad, even samsung's profit increased driven by strong demand of s7 and s7 edge too. Mad?

He's livid about it. Apple's sales are down, Samsung's are up, and his tears are flowing.

They also released it in a different Quater to make it look like YOY profits are rising. S6 came out in quarter 2. S7 came out in quarter 1. Samsung will not play me for a fool!

Thats even better, profit increased on 2nd quarter this year when the s6 was released on the 2nd quarter last year. So we are comparing 2nd quarter YoY, and samsung still performs better this year. What's your problem now that you don't understand?

U are a fool if you think one month on sale in Q1 is a full quarter. Samsung is still selling more phones than Apple...wahhhhhh. that's what you're saying. Why do u care how many they sell? Obviously they've been doing this every year. They sell 300M phones every year. 1/3 are just the S and Note. Just think fool, 2 Samsung phones sell at 50% the rate of all selling iPhone models....BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!

Where were you when Apple moved up the release of the iPhone 6 in China to increase their numbers year over year? Why does the S7 selling so well bothering you?

28. TechieXP1969

First off dummy, Apple doesn't give the sells of each model. All of them together. How many of each model you think Apple is selling? The 6s was likely also selling 5M per month because that is the capacity Apple has. We've already seen this. They have 10m preorders and then their all sold out, even though the new phone was in production for 3 months. You're saying Apple sells 40M every quarter? Samsung sells 80m+ every quarter if you count all selling models as Apple does. Why don't you get a life dumm. Samsung has been selling 300M pJones consistency since selling 430M only a few years ago. Since selling that many they have not sold less than 80M+ per quarter. You're bragging about 40M? Edge is useless? It makes the phone look nice. You dipstick always brag about the iPhone looks for years because that is all in had. Now that Apple makes the ugliess, lowesT PPI having, terrible battery life havin, terrible picture taken, overprice POS; y ou do t want t o give credit to anyone else. I like for all OEMS to get a turn at the top. UT if you aren't going to spend the money to be their then you don't deserve to be there. Apple doesn't sell the most phones and actually really never have. it was nokia who did cirst, the RIm, Apple lasted 2 years and then Samsung burned them to the stake. The edge is no more gimmicky to Samsung than Retina Display and 3D Touch BS is to Apple. Your just mad be it is Apple whom will die long before Samsung, just like Samsung has been in business longer than Apple. You can't survive covered on one product. As the iPhone just becomes more like Android, Apple will continue to fall to the bottom.

The phones aren't free stupid. Samsung doesnt do BOGO and never have. Those are carrier deals stupid. Carrier buy phones from OEMS and resale them to you, Dummy! They can sell them how they want to draw customers. OH and carriers did the same deals on iPhone too. Or did the reality distortion field block your ignorant @$$ from seeing it.
