Samsung sells 1 million Galaxy S5 smartphones... in Germany

Samsung sells 1 million Galaxy S5 smartphones... in Germany
While Samsung hasn’t updated us on how many Galaxy S5 smartphones it shipped around the world since May (when the company said that 10 million units had been shipped in 25 days since launch), we know that it was hoping to ship at least 35 million units around the world this year. This doesn't seem to be an impossible goal, because Samsung today revealed that it sold (not just shipped) 1 million S5 handsets in Germany alone.

It’s the first time when Samsung talks about specific Galaxy S5 sales numbers for a country other than South Korea. To celebrate this, Samsung offered a €500 voucher to the 1 millionth Galaxy S5 buyer. We must say, Samsung picked a very interesting moment to celebrate this milestone: it’s the day when Apple released its brand new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus (with Germany being among the select markets to get both models from day one).

While it’s been around since late March, the Galaxy S5 is obviously still a great smartphone, though many users may (understandably) not be attracted to it that much, now that newer options are available - including, of course, Apple’s latest iPhones, or Samsung’s own Galaxy Note 4 (which can already be pre-ordered, though it won’t start shipping before October).

Wow... I wish that too but not lucky yet. Maybe in the future to be a businessman. And when I become a businessman I would and still buy the Apple iPhone.

What's your problem with Apple iPhone? I'm sure many people will agree that Apple makes good phones even mid-range and overprice.

Listen iBoy : The Cult of Apple has had a negative impact on the minds of many of its followers. It is largely believed that they brainwash people by telling them to 'think different'. Ironically it turns out that most of the cult's followers turn into mindless zombies believing everything their cult leader, Steve Jobs, tells them and as a result they rather 'think the same'. Lmao.

Why would you care, when you don't have no self respect. You don't belong in social aristocratic society.

How come? Do you respect yourself. Show what you got and not a brand of PRADA. Or are you gay? Gay don't belong here.
