Samsung Announces 50 Million Galaxy S Series Devices Sold

The Galaxy S III already a runaway success before its even launched all over the world as nine million pre-ordered Galaxy S III devices logged even before the phone went on sale, Samsung announces a new set of milestones for the Galaxy line. Samsung’s newest press release highlights the Galaxy S series has sold more than 50 million sales worldwide, with 24 million Galaxy S and 28 million Galaxy S II handsets sold to date. The Galaxy Note is no slouch either, with over seven million sales, a big jump of two million units since five million sales of the Galaxy Note were announced just two months ago.

While Samsung may be facing increasing competition, they continue to solidify their place as the world-wide leader in Android sales. In fact, it’s a real wonder at this point if any Android manufacturing competitor has what it takes to beat Samsung’s sales volume.

  • Love the Galaxy S line, it beats out every other smartphone. I am not just saying that because of this article either, I’ve always said it. It is number one, and it will continue on into the future.

    Now I’m ready to read all the post from others, stating how bad Samsung is and don’t do updates lol. Bring it, bring it lol.

      I agree with you, many people complain about Samsung making plastic phones that don’t have that “solid” feel. But I personally love their hardware, I don’t need a phone to weigh 5 pounds to convince me it’s solid. The phones are durable, great screens, I’m not a major fan of touchwiz but that’s easily replaceable. Overall I think Samsungs success has been a result of them paying attention to the minor details that make a smartphone a pleasure to use…

      Posted from my Galaxy Note ;-)

      • Cool, I’m on my Galaxy Note too (N7000), lol. I just put ice cream on it yesterday. Yep you’re right, the build quality on Samsung products are just fantastic.

    • fixxmyhead

      totally agree thats why i have always gone and will always go with the galaxy s series.

  • yahoo

    I will be purchasing one so that would make it 50,000,001!

  • MarcusDW

    Samsung fan before and even bigger Samsung fan after the Galaxy S line was released.  They are just killing the Android competition and the only phone I can think of that can compete with the GS3 is the One X.

  • Deadeye37

    I think HTC makes very nice & solid phones.  It’s too bad that they’re struggling financially, or else they could make a strong run at the juggernaut that is Samsung.

    As it stands, I love my G2 and I really wanted to get the One S, but with the microSD card support being cut, my next phone will probably be the GSIII, unless the One X really does come to T-mo as the G4x.

    • ogopogo

       Agreed. A number of us are in the same boat. We don’t want cloud storage. We want microSD card support, AND a removable battery.

      HTC hardware is pretty rock solid….sorry to see them take this path, as it would prevent me from purchasing future HTC products.

      • loueradun

        Adding a “me too!” to this comment.  HTC please get back in the game and give us our microSD slots back… You have the best hardware hands down, but no microSD is unacceptable… I might as well buy an iPhone.

  • Xavier

    i like those two girls….HD PIC!!! LOL

  • Xavier

    but G4x sounds great!!! if it does happen…will get that SIII for now though

    I like the feel of a samsung phone, who needs a “solid” phone when you have a light phone that wont drag your pants down further below your ass 

    • Wilma Flintstone

      Well nowadays people are wearing skinny jeans that hug their butts so tight that air is screaming for help so I don’t think pants dragging would be an issue lol

      • MarcusDW

        These clowns in KC still sag hardcore.

        • fixxmyhead

          they should get pants like these 


          OMG stupidest invention

        • MarcusDW

          Noooo that’s F crazy! Lol

        • Johnny Brown

          HAHA Soooo true! 

        • MarcusDW

          I was at the Raytown DMV today renewing my licence… SMH…  I’ll need to go to a different blog to have this conversation.

  • fixxmyhead

    I’ll take performance over looks any day *cought*HTC*cough*

    • JBrowne1012

      Samsung has them both

      • fixxmyhead

        i guess its not a big deal to me but ask htc fanboys and they  go all up in a rage on how htc is waayyyy better

        • krazytrixxxsta

          fanboys are all the same, no matter what they going crazy over.

  • Asianlover

    I’d rather have the two hot little asian gals in the picture than the phone!  :)

  • Carloslacend

    Samsung fan. They are the best

  • JBLmobileG1

    While I like Samsung I find it funny how they came out on top when it came to Android phones. The reason why I say this is because their first Android phone wasn’t the best and I remember how many people said they would never buy a Samsung phone because of how they promised to upgrade it but never did. Also they always seemed to take forever with updates unless of course you had a Nexus phone. Also the built quality never seemed to meet my personal standards not to mention their non Android touch screen phones were buggy and had poor touch screen capabilities which would frustrate anyone with large fingers.

    • Corradoswapt

      I still rock my origional galaxy from time to time. thou it did have its downfalls it is still a great phone. built solid, beautiful oled screen, and easy to mod  

      • Shibby

        I think he’s talking about the behold 2

        • JBLmobileG1

          Yeah I am talking about the Behold 2. One of the worse Android phones ever released by Tmobile. You could probably say the same for LG and the G2X but at least it received updates.

  • xSAVAGEx

    I love the S. line. I know how people have commented on the cheap plastic feel but I like my phone nice and light. With a cover they all feel like rubber anyways.

  • Od312

    I like the one on the right. You?



  • Verhouze

    I think Apple pissed Samsung off. Left them with no choice but to out sell them.
