Samsung Galaxy S5 Slow To Match S4 Sales

Samsung launched the Galaxy S5 with hope that it would be their most successful smartphone yet. It is certainly one of the most advanced Samsung have created, but it is apparently not making the waves they had hoped and is not selling at the level they expected from what many believe to be Samsung’s big hope to compete with Apple’s iPhone 6 which has taken off in great style.

The S5 was released in April but in the first 3 months sold 40% less than Samsung had expected. Samsung sold 12 million Galaxy S5’s during the 3 month period which in comparison to the 16 million Galaxy S4’s sold during the same period is very disappointing for the company. Although the release of the iPhone’s would certainly not have helped.

Samsung Galaxy S5 vs S4

When Samsung launched the Galaxy S5 it was seen as an upgrade to the Galaxy S4, and it received some very favourable reviews including one from CNET senior editor Jessica Dolcourt that scored the device 4.5/5 quoting that it was “subtly improved and smartly refined, a superior smartphone that hits every mark but the sharpest design.”
