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.

Remember:
Samsung ONLY reports "shipped" numbers, NOT "sold" numbers - and have been caught inflating many numbers recently (including sales numbers, follow the trial)

So - one has to wonder. . . Who's right.
The only "known" fact: Apple is eating everyone else's lunch when it comes to "profit" and after all, isn't that why business exists? To make "profit"???
