Samsung ships 10 million Galaxy S5 units in 25 days, beating Galaxy S4 record

Samsung Galaxy S5

The Samsung Galaxy S5 hasn’t gotten the warmest reception in the media as of late. Technology enthusiasts want something very specific out of their devices, and Samsung hasn’t delivered it in many ways. But no matter how much we talk about what Samsung has to change, it’s just proven again and again that the regular folk want something completely different, and the Galaxy S5 is no exception.

South Korea’s Hankyung claims that Samsung has shipped 10 million devices in just 25 days, beating the previous personal record set by the Galaxy S4. The Galaxy S4 took 27 days to ship 10 million units, while the Galaxy S III took 50 days, the Galaxy S II took 5 months, and the Galaxy S took 7 months. While growth has slowed, popularity is still increasing and the Galaxy S5 is by no means an undesirable phone.

While these figures aren’t sales, the amount of units shipped is nonetheless impressive. No matter how much we bash Samsung for this or that, consumers genuinely enjoy their devices. I’ve witnessed this first hand. However, we can still wish for an even better product from Samsung. And with a new lead designer we just might see our complaints addressed.
