Samsung Galaxy S4 sales dropped to 5 million in August

The recent rumor about Samsung officially announcing the Galaxy S5 in January may or may not turn out to be correct, but the reasoning behind the rumor – less than expected sales of the Galaxy S4 – might have some truth to it. According to Hong-Kong analytic firm Counterpoint Research, Samsung saw a drop in the Galaxy S4’s sales to around 5 million in August, down from a peak of 7 million in June. The device was still the best-selling smartphone for the month, but it didn’t do as well as it did in the previous months.

According to the report, the Galaxy S4 outsold the iPhone 5, though since the iPhone 5 is counted as two separated devices for the 16 and 32GB variants, which come in at the second and third position, Samsung might not have done that well with its current flagship. However, making up for the lost sales of the S4 were Samsung’s cheaper devices, like the Galaxy S3, S3 mini, and S4 mini, as while the high-end market growth has slowed, the low-end and mid-range part of the market continues to grow at a rapid pace.

in many part of Asia countries, Samsung service center is outsourced and run by third party vendor. That`s why they will either tell you it is either your fault or they will ask you to pay for overpriced part replacement. There`s no doubt Samsung is making huge profit from mobile business.

Same fate awaits note 3, markets are fed up with phones, smartphone junkies will not influence sales all by themselves. Even I am smartphone junkie and i am not willing to upgrade from note2. Something else needs to be made not just higher specs… i am pretty sure that 80-90% of galaxy owners dont even know what is snapdragon or qualcomm, what frequencies are their processors running on and what memory they have

Im a bit surprised that crapple outsold Samsung, perhaps it may help if Samsung stepped it up a notch when releasing updates. People want the latest and greatest and tend to get impatient. Android 4.4 is close to release and Samsung phones still haven’t seen an official release of 4.3
