  • Galaxy S4 Sales Best iPhone 5 at Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile


    Samsung's Galaxy S4 is a hot item in mobile today.

    The flagship Samsung smartphone has topped iPhone 5 sales at Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile stores. In fact, AT&T is the only carrier at which the iPhone 5 continues to lead all smartphone sales. But even at AT&T, the Galaxy S4 is now the second best-selling mobile phone.

    This information comes from data procured directly from wireless store surveys by researchers at Canaccord Genuity.

    “We believe Samsung on the strength of strong Galaxy S4, S III, and Note II sales surpassed Apple to gain top share of the U.S. smartphone market for the first time since the iPhone 5 launch,” explained Michael Walkley, the Canaccord Genuity analyst who conducted the survey.

    So what does this information truly reveal? It's tough to say and for obvious reasons.

    "That may look like a milestone, but the report should be taken with a grain of salt," says Brian Chen of The New York Times. "The survey doesn’t include Apple’s retail stores, where many iPhones are sold. And it remains to be seen whether Samsung can beat Apple in sales after Apple releases a new iPhone (or even a cheaper iPhone, as rumors suggest)."

      Before all the samsung fanatics get too excited you may want to read the whole article. This line in particular:

      The survey doesn’t include Apple’s retail stores, where many iPhones are sold.

      Well it's by far a better smart phone, so I'm not surprised.

      This makes me laugh. I remember people whined and cried about having to go to AT&T. So many swore the iPhone would sell better at Verizon than AT&T. Yet here we are 3 years later and AT&T is still selling more.

      you are 100% correct.

      quality in my opinion is having a phone that does not shatter when dropped. a phone that does not come OUT OF THE BOX with paint chipped, scuffs and scratches. a phone not prone to dents, a phone that does not have light bleed under the screen, a phone that does not have muted outgoing calls--just some of the issues that plagued the iPhone 5. but dont take my word for it, I got it straight from apple's "support forums"

      you're also right about customer experience. no iPhone user has ever experienced;

      usb ports
      hdmi ports
      micro sd card slots
      removable batteries
      7.1 surround sound
      720p or 1080p HD displays
      voice control (not voice commands but actual voice control)
      NFC or any other ability to share content
      flash support
      the ability to add content OF YOUR CHOOSING onto YOUR device WITHOUT restrictions
      widgets
      ability to download content from the web
      MULTItasking !!
      screen sizes over 4"
      many form factors and models to choose from.

      and like 100 other things.

      Well of course not. But it's the principle. They don't come here to debate. There just being an ***. That's all I'm saying.

      I've yet to see this have any practical use. If needed, I've always got Bump.

      Flash doesn't even support Android anymore. Plus, most programs that use flash require a mouse and keyboard.

      Oh, right. Those couple thousand crap apps.

      And before you go hating, I own an android phone (simply because it was free) and an Android tablet (much cheaper than an iPad) so I do actually get Android. I love the thought behind Android. I just don't like it as much as iOS.

      I'm not sure what "street corner" you're buying your iphones from, but I've NEVER experienced any problems like that with my idevices, and my entire family has been using them since they launched. Being totally honest...from the Iphone to the Ipad, the devices have always been perfect. I've seen SEVERAL of the devices on a personal level and corporate world (I'm a Systems Tech Analyst a major airline) and that has NEVER been the case. Some of the stuff that the apple devices will be used for in the business world is going to trip folks out.

      You may as well be talking to a wall. He can't see anything past his samsung. Always lists these useless things with half truths and some outright lies.
