The Galaxy S5 surpasses the Galaxy S4 in terms of adoption rate in the USA
In this line of thought, it is quite curious to compare the overall adoption rates of the two devices, the S4 and the S5, for a bigger amount of time and see if the trend is still present. Luckily, the folks at Chitika, an online advertising network, released a statistical report that gives us more insight on the matter. According to Chitika, the Galaxy S5 accounted for 4.3% of all Samsung smartphone web traffic in North America just 25 days after it got launched, from April 11 throughout May 5. Can you guess how the Galaxy S4 fared for the same amount of time back in 2013, from April 25 to May 19? Well, the former flagship was responsible for just 2% of the web traffic.
Pretty impressive, right? We should also take into consideration that nowadays the smartphone market is more saturated with high-end smartphones than it was a year ago, which makes Galaxy S5's market penetration even more spectacular.
Chitika also points out some of the factors that could be driving the Galaxy S5's sales forward. Apart from the popularity of the Samsung brand, the big 5.1-inch display and the IP67 dust- and water-resistance also made the Galaxy S5 quite appealing to the mass consumer.
The Galaxy S5 will undoubtedly be one of the hits on the smartphone market this year, but Samsung's rivals won't stay idle – on the contrary, their smartphones are going to fight tooth and nail with the Galaxy S5 for a bigger share of the market.
