5 Million iPhone5 Sold in 3 Day Weekend vs. 10 Million Galaxy S4 Sold in 30 Days – Which is Better? ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

May 20, 2013

5 Million iPhone5 Sold in its First 3-Day Weekend vs. 10 Million Galaxy S4 Sold in its First 30 Days – Which is Better.

If history repeats itself, the Apple iPhone may out-sold the Galaxy smartphone almost Two-to-One, shown in the last 90 day period ending mid-March, 2013. Later this year the figures will tell the story.

The iPhone 5 launched to record sales figures; 5 million units sold to customers in the first three days. Samsung’s Galaxy S4 has also launched to strong figures; 10 million units shipped in the first 4 weeks. One announcement of these was a ‘disappointment’ from an analyst, yet the other figure is hailed as a triumph. Crazy? Well, maybe it is.

For Samsung, 10 million units shipped to vendors, makes it their fastest selling smartphone release ever, so for the folks from Korea at least, it is indeed a triumph. However, Apple sold to customers (not shipped to vendors) 5 million units of the iPhone 5 in the first 3 day weekend.

Compare these two headlines from Businessinsider:

iPhone 5 opening weekend sales come in worse than expected.

The headline above begs the question, worse than whose expectation?

Samsung’s S4 starts strong: 10 million units in less than a month.

One story portrays doom and gloom, and the other a more jubilant atmosphere. Analysts called 6 million units for the iPhone 5 the “worst case scenario” for Apple’s opening weekend. And yet, Apple achieved half Samsung’s initial 4-Weeks sales within Apple’s iPhone initial 3-Day weekend.
