View Full Version : Galaxy S3 sales hit 30 Million, The Note 2 sells 3 Milliion

And there you have it, the Galaxy S line and the Note officially have a legitimate following. What's more impressive to me is, with only 3 generations of phones (GS3), Samsung has leaped to lead the industry with on of the best smartphones on the planet. All the while innovating to create a new class, "The Phablet." Way to teach the industry how to be daring and innovative. So glad they don't do the BS incremental updates that some other companies do to squeeze as much out of the consumer while giving as little as possible. Bravo Sammy, Bravo indeed.

Source Note2 Sales (http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_sells_3_million_galaxy_note_ii_units_in_just_over_a_month-news-5038.php)


Now when the time comes and I upgrade my GS3 to the GS5, I'll actually have a phone that truly has 2 years of real innovation and massive upgrades. Not small profit squeezing upgrades.

Bottom Line:
When it comes to upgrades, 2 Years of Galaxy S Phones > 2 Years of iPhones
The difference between GS3 to GS1 > difference between iP5 to iP4, and to ME that's a BIG DEAL.

That's great news.

I'm a long time Apple fan boy that bought a Samsung phone because it's just a better phone period.

Competition is good for all of us regardless of which brands we prefer.

Rofl those are sale numbers to retailers. 2/3 of the phones are still in shelves and warehouses.

If that's the case retailers would not order more. If they don't order more than how can Samsung keep shipping them?

Just think about that for a second.

Pretty sure this is correct. I love the S3, I have owned two of them in fact but there is no way its SOLD 30 million to actual customers. I walked right into an AT&T store day it went on sale and bought one. The same AT&T store that still has no iPhone 5 for sale and hasnt even filled their orders yet. The S3 is readily available most anywhere its sold and online, no way it has sold that well. Those figures are sales to retailers, not actual customers.

Yes and im sure your AT&T store represents the whole world :rolleyes: Did you know Android has a near 80% market share in Spain?

I dont know exactly how many they have sold and dont care. I know it has been a lot though.
I do know that you dont keep ordering something that is still sitting on a shelf. I see them all over now.

A co-worker wanted to try mine oout today because he said he was going to get one this month when his contact ends.
BTW, the day it went on sale i had to go to three stores to get the two GS3's i bought(the other two only had the pebble blue) and there was a line of 4 people ahead of me :p

Gotta love the blind loyalists and their never ending denial of how a competitive device can sell INSANELY MASSIVE NUMBERS. Specifically the Galaxy S line. So let us not forget, when Apple releases number of devices sold, it is always absolute. And when anyone else, ESPECIALLY SAMSUNG, releases these numbers it's numbers shipped and sitting on shelves. LOL.
You blind loyalist are a sorry bunch without question.

Samsung reports wholesale sales to retailers as sales. This accounts for 5-8 million units for a new phone release. Clearly they are selling to individuals as well, but their numbers are not consumer sales. Nothing wrong with that, it just needs to be kept in perspective.

Apple reports only sales to consumers.

So are you saying that there are 22 to 25 million handsets are on the shelf in stores? Not starting an argument, just curious where those figures originate.

I'm not sure what's not clear here,

I said Samsung reports wholesale sales into their distribution channel as sales.

These are not end user sales.

We have no way to know how many phones resellers have sold to consumers, and how many are sitting on the shelves.

Apple reports end user sales to consumers.

Phones sitting in an Apple dealer are not reported as sold.

Phones sitting on the shelf at a Samsung reseller are reported as sold.

Comparing the sales figures between the two companies does not tell us how many consumers have actually purchased both products, only how many each company has sold.

Someone said the same thing when Samsung reported 5 million, 10 million, 20 million. See a pattern?

Here's the deal: Samsung got rightfully dinged a couple of years ago when the very first tablet end user sales didn't match up. However, those days are past.

Apple reports end user sales to consumers.

No. Apple also reports sales to retailers, not just sales to end users from its own stores.

Twice this year Apple has had to admit in their quarterly calls that sell-through to end users didn't match their reported sell-in to stores.

Earlier this year they explained that a rather large 2.6 million quarterly decrease in iPhone sales was because many were still in store inventories from the previous quarter.

And in the most recent call, Cook partially explained a similiar 3 million drop in iPad sales using the same reason: retailers had bought too many the previous quarter.

When people bring up end user sell-through versus store sell-in, everyone... including Apple... has that problem at times. Samsung does not seem to be experiencing that with the GS3 yet.

I can't believe you just compared a product line who's software went from Gingerbread to JB, to a product line that started on iOS 4... which this is purely software, and responsible for by Google.

Not to mention GS1 doesn't run JB w/o being rooted while iP4 can run iOS 6 fine.

Regardless, those numbers are impressive, honestly most impressive is the Note, considering they would have sold well over 13 million total devices on the Galaxy Note line!

Yep, retailers keep ordering more and more phones to pile up in the back room! Clearly they sold almost none.

Does not surprise me, the GS3 is a freaking great phone, hopefully it'll make Apple get off its ass and make a phone thats worth buying.

I dont care about brands, I buy the best. Right now, I think the GS3 is the best phone on the market for my needs, Windows 8 phones are looking incredible, BlackBerry 10 looks very good to, Android is steaming ahead of iOS, so is Windows Phone, even blackberry. Tho they don't sell as much of course.

Eventually, they'll catch up to Apple in the sense that Apple will lose iPhone sales, and lose profit.

I think Apple knows this is already starting to happen, which is why they fired the lead iOS guy. And put Ive in charge.

For me, when I bought my iPhone 3GS, it was the best phone on the market, then I moved to Android, because I think its the best. Windows Phone is looking great to.

Who knows? Maybe the next phone will be a blackberry ;) BB10 looks great.

Apple needs to give me a reason to buy their phone, the iPhone 5 clearly isn't a slightly longer version of exactly the same phone or anything....

The ONE thing id like to see the Galaxy line get away from is bowing to the carriers on updated OS releases. They made the GS3 look the same on all carriers so now its time to say FU, we are releasing and update and it wont go thru you before it gets to the people.

Jelly Bean should of been on its way to GS3 owners by now. With the line selling so well, it lets the carriers sell many more devices so they should have some pull on this...i would think anyways. I dont need any BS bloatware from T-Mobile on there. I dont use any of it.

The S4 and Android 4.3 will be well on its way before you ever see 4.1 on your S3 and you will always be a couple updates behind. What happened to that BS alliance that the carriers and manufacturers agreed to a few years back promising to update their phones quickly? Big reason I got fed up and got an iphone 5

I wouldnt say that. I doubt the S4 comes out in March like speculation says. Probably June.

JB was supposed to come out late Q3 or early Q4 for the GS3. Well it is early Q4 now.

Oh really? And what will you do when the next iOS update comes minus the must have features of the next update. You know? Things like face time over cellular, flyover, turn by turn nav, siri. You know, those things a lot of iphone 4 people weren't too happy about. Oh but at least they got the "Update." Yeah, thanks for comin' out.

The iphone 4 is a two year old phone and at least you can still get iOS 6 on it. Try finding a 2 year old Android phone still being updated AT ALL. Hell, there are phones not even ONE years old that wont be seeing Jelly Bean.

Getting iOS6 without the features just to say you're on iOS6 means very little. From what I've seen, older versions of android still do a lot more than newer versions of iOS.

Wow, you completely missed his point. Who gives a shlt about an update that doesn't give you all the features that the update boasts. Let's not forget inferior hardware you get from the incremental updates Apple loves to do to squeeze every cent of profit from the consumer. And at the same time tell you that you can't run the new must have features because the new iOS update is too much for the old hardware to run. Like he said, Thanks for coming out.

The same thing was said when they announced they sold 8 million. Now we are at 30 million. I think they are getting sold.

Sure seems some in here are butt hurt over these figures to keep repeating the same things over and over.

Show me some proof thats how they report their sales and prook that is how Apple reports their sales and then we can argue about it. But in the end, th devices are getting sold. We are in the multiple millions here so what does it matter anyways?

The Galaxy line is doing well and improving every year with every new device.

Again, its a TWO year old phone. You are free to upgrade your phone and contract if you wish. I have had plenty of Android phones over the years and have had to buy brand new phones at FULL retail price just to get the newest version of Android because the carrier decided not to update my current one or the manufacturer (looking at you LG) decided to abandon the phone months after putting it out. Quit acting like Android makers have a great history with updates, its still a cluster**k with tons of different phones running like 3 different versions of the OS. Its God awful, a ton worse then Apple and iOS.

Challenge accepted.

Nexus S. Went from Gingerbread to ICS to JB. It will likely get JB 4.2 too.

Don't see why you're so angry michaeljohn. Can updates be better across Android devices? Of course.

But if timely updates are that important to anyone, the Nexus line takes care of that need. One phone a year, guaranteed updates for 2 years. Sound familiar?

Whereas if specs or something else the Nexus line doesn't offer is more important, then people have the freedom to go with other manufacturers. That's the freedom of choice. Choices aren't always easy to make. But hard choices are better than no choices.

As for the Note 2's sales, they haven't even shipped them yet. Wait for the phone to be in stores and people can view and sample it; then, the sales' figures will climb.

A lot of people say that Apple isn't concerned about market share. Nonsense! Their mobiles' market share is their lifeblood; without a large % of the market, their profits from their mobiles fall, regardless of their high margins. From the last earnings report, their iPad sales have not hit the mark. With the mini listed at $329 (with older specs and materials), look for another disappointing quarter.

Hopefully, the Galaxy phones' success spurs Apple to really innovate. We'll see...

Developers do, because it means that they don't have to worry so much about getting their software to work on all devices. If updating is painless, and most people update, then developers don't have to go through the the song and dance of worrying about compatibility.

You can whine all you like about sales, but unless Google stops Android fragmentation, the platform won't last.

Why would Apple care? They don't compete in mobile per se, but only in smartphones. Apple doesn't sell feature phones.

If Apple is getting smoked by Android devices in the smartphone/tablet sector, then what are people using these devices for? They certainly aren't using them for web browsing, as Apple devices have somewhere between 3/5 to 2/3 usage share whereas Android doesn't even break 1/4.

The blindingly obvious explanation is that the vast majority of Android devices sold are primitive feature phones which are of little, if any, use in browsing the web.

Sorry but I quiet dont understand your point. What are the benefits of having ios6 on iPhone4??
-YouTube stock app removal
-Google Map removal but same no turn-by-turn nor flyover map with worse mapping
-No siri
-No JB
-so on....
I feel like having more heavy resource OS on older device is a bad idea without any new features.
And I, personally, am sick of Apple's greed and boring iOS.
For an example, the siri!! Came along with 4s. So people complained, why cant we have it on iphone4? They said A4 chip doesnt have a good voice-recognition as A5 chips do. Ok.... iPad 2 users complained, why cant we have it on iPad? Apple explained that iPad does not have internet connection continuously thus making siri unreliable. Ok.... Now iPad mini with siri!! Having same spec(chips) as iPad2 but offers siri?? lol all I see is Apple hiding features in new ios and use it as sales strategy. With bunch of BS of course. Why dont they just put siri as an add-on feature and charge people lol. Shame

Edit: forgot to mention google app's voice recognition works flawless on my previous iPhone 4. :rolleyes:

It seems that all the people talking about fragmentation are people that doesn't use Android. Two years reading about how fragmentation will kill Android and it has more market share than ever.

And the update philosophy is very different, most of the core apps are updated independently of the OS, apps like Maps, Gmail, Play Store, calendar, etc

Pretty sure this is correct. I love the S3, I have owned two of them in fact but there is no way its SOLD 30 million to actual customers. I walked right into an AT&T store day it went on sale and bought one. The same AT&T store that still has no iPhone 5 for sale and hasnt even filled their orders yet. The S3 is readily available most anywhere its sold and online, no way it has sold that well. Those figures are sales to retailers, not actual customers.

Incorrect, there was no official launch date on AT&T in the US. It was originally supposed to be the 25th of June but it was changed. Granted there were no lines for it like a typical iPhone launch it wasn't the easiest phone in the world to get. I had to preorder mine because no AT&T store in the city had one(I apparently got mine pre release). Apple traditionally dominates the US market, but Europe, and Asia is a different story. The bottom line is, 30million people definitely purchased a Galaxy S3.

Trust me when I say this, I NEVER thought in my life time that I would be caught dead with an Android device. I've always been one of the most vocal iPhone defenders. I always told myself that the day Apple falls behind in innovation I'll switch, and sadly that time is here. The feature set on the iPhone 5 is just sorely lacking for a redesigned phone, and people are starting to realize this. Brand loyalty is great, but when there's something better, it's time to move on.
