Announcement comes from companies CEO JK Shin
Samsung launched its Galaxy S4
smartphone back in April and the device has proven to be incredibly popular. It took the smartphone about two months to sell 20 million units and four months after launch to hit 30 million units. As the phone has aged and competition increased, it's sales pace has declined.
The Galaxy S4 sold only about 5 million units in August. However, Samsung CEO JK Shin recently stated that over 40 million Galaxy S4 smartphones have been sold globally since the device launched. Considering the phone is been around for about six months, this is an impressive feat for Samsung.
Samsung has continued to roll out some interesting new products following the launch of the Galaxy S4. Most recently, Samsung
unveiled its Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Gear smartwatch
. The Galaxy Note 3 has impressed both reviewers and customers; however, the Galaxy Gear smartwatch has proven to be rather unloved in many reviews.

You should learn to relax.
The point is in response to this: "the GS4 is one of many from many sifferent makers on the other platform."
Disregard manufacturer because that is far less relevant than hardware tier. When taking low end devices out of the equation there are only a few relevant names: GS4, iPhone, HTC One. That's the point. The explosion in low end devices has no influence on someone buying an iPhone or a GS4 or an HTC One.
You saying you don't understand this point is like saying you don't understand why eMachines or netbooks don't have any influence on people who buy better hardware. Someone who would buy better hardware clearly has no interest in something low end. If someone is buying a GS4 they're doing it because they are getting better hardware than an Android device that is $100 or free with contract, and they would almost never consider getting such a device.
These are two discreet markets with very low crossover.
Either quality is the driving factor or price is, and rarely do the two meet. The only competition the GS4 has in the Android space is getting
by them. They're literally selling at ten times the rate of their Android competition.

You keep thinking that, I am tiring of the same conversation. You are like talking to a wall with a broken record inside of it.
ooh look, a chance to hijack another topic and get back on my soapbox. Oh boy....... Yawn.

You keep thinking these are based on opinion when its all about hard facts and reality.
But no, your right, GS4 sales are clearly being cannibalized by Galaxy Reverb, LG Mach, and Kyocera Rise sales.
Incredible logic you have there.
