    The first week of launch was said to be a good one for the Galaxy S5, and now, data released by a retail management software provider suggests that Samsung's waterproof flagship outsold Apple's iPhone 5s in its launch weekend (April 11-13) in the US. According to the report, which is based on data collected from “over 15,000 store locations across the North America,” the Galaxy S5 accounted for 23 percent of all phones sold in the US and 18 percent of phones sold in Canada over said weekend, compared to 18 percent and 13 percent for the iPhone 5s when it launched last year.

    The Galaxy S5 was found to be most popular in southern parts of the US, comprising a whopping 41 percent of phones sold in the region. The data also suggests that despite the impending release of the Galaxy S5, consumers were still buying the Galaxy S4 in droves during the 2013 holiday season and in January 2014. The results are interesting, and coupled with the reports of the Galaxy S5 already accounting for 0.7 percent of all Android phones, once again point out just how well consumers seem to have received the latest and greatest from the Korean manufacturer.
