Galaxy S5 sales doubled S4 sales in some countires on launch day

Samsung has offered up a few [vague] details on the launch day sales of the new Galaxy S5 smartphone. The Galaxy S5 went on sale around the world on April 11 and racked up more sales on opening day than the previous Galaxy S4 was able to muster.
Samsung noted that the S5 doubled the sales of the older phone in some countries, but declined to give specifics. Sticking with that theme, Samsung says that it received millions of orders for the S5, but didn't offer a specific number of actual sales.

Looking back at previous Galaxy smartphone launches, the previous generation Galaxy S4 reached the 10 million units sold mark in about a month. The Galaxy S3 hit 10 million units in about 50 days, while the Galaxy S2 needed five months to reach that same milestone.
The Galaxy S5 features a 5.1” 1080p display, 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor paired, fingerprint reader, 16MP camera, 2800 mAh battery, and USB 3.0 connectivity.
The Galaxy S5 is available across 125 countries including the U.S., Europe, Middle East, Latin America, and most of Asia.

That was double the number of S4 sold in Botswana and more than double the number sold in Spain at launch.

Of course those numbers are just made up bollocks but given that the best that Samsung can come up (given that they have all the data available and to hand) is some duplicitous headline grabbing but vacuous statement like they sold 'twice as many in some countries" all one can reasonable do is mock, especially given this:

Why is this sort of PR guff even reported?

Be fair. If this had been Apple, all the fanatics would be crowing about how Apple still had the magic touch.

You know that Spain is a rich country with 47 million citizens and even with the crisis they probably bought a lot of Galaxy S4, right?

He's an Apple fanboy troll. Best not to feed it. Of course he knows, he is being an idiot.

Rich? where? ppl earn $1,1-1,2k/month on average with no welfare available when it's over. I wouldn't call that "rich".

It depends on the cost of living. That amount of money in CA or NY would get you homeless and starving. In some states you could get by and at least survive, and in some countries you would be in fat city with plenty left over to play with.

$600-850 average rent
$65 internet
$20 cellphone
$100-150 water/power
$21 average meal at rest.

prices in general aren't cheap for the kind of wages you get.

"is some duplicitous headline grabbing but vacuous statement "

Oh the irony. Coming from you this is priceless.

It's not a threat Tony. It's just a phone. Relax. Breath. Repeat. /rollseyes.
