Anonymous, 09 Jan 2017Exactly. Get rid all of those chinese brand, Samsung & ... moreThe Chinese manufacturers are giving great value for money, such as the one plus 3/3t offering great specs for 1/3 the price of a Samsung S7... Unless you want to pay thousands of dollars for one phone, let the Chinese manufacturers rule.

Simon, 09 Jan 2017I miss the revolution the original S and the S4 brought. We... moreKilled removable battery, doesn't top the hardware anymore, they are followers in virtually every metric. A bad apple imitator.

Samsung used to be the first. First Amoled maker, first qhd, first 3gb of ram, first 8 core , first with mammoth removable battery.

Then they said f**k it, released iterative designs and people are buying them in droves. They do not care to make a great product, they care to sell in droves even if it means harming their long term sales... Businesses (of all kinds) are sooo short sighted. Only Steve jobs had vision, that Tim Cook guy is a typical businessman, killing iphone's long term prospects for short sighted gain. A bit like Samsung guys.

Ok, I get your frustration, but I am just looking for an official figure. I on the other hand, have an S7 Edge and it's by far the best and most innovative (at least design wise) phone i've ever had.

We can chat about opinions, but I am interested in the sales figures...does anyone have some information? Because i can't seem to find anything specific on google and nothing on gsmarena either...

Also with sealed battery, no FM radio, no ir blaster, basically nothing to stand out from other brands of course it only sold 3 mil more. P9 and Oneplus 3 came like a storm in 2016. Small bezels and gimmicks won't boost S8 sales to 60 million either.

I miss the revolution the original S and the S4 brought. Well, it gets reflected in the sales numbers.

S7 only sold 23 million more than S6??

That can't be right - does anybody have more information on this? I am really curious to find out how much the S7+S7 Edge have actually sold...

AnonD-625786, 09 Jan 201760 million units!? In my opinion, Samsung will reach 35-40 ... moreNah that's impossible to sell such amount of units not even iclose to those numbers I think 10-15M sounds quite possible after some bad changes that has been done over that device ppl gonna dislike it

  • me

i love samsung

I don't think this is gonna happen. There are still too many people who don't want to miss the 3,5mm headphone jack. This alone is reason enough, why Samsung won't sell 60 million units of the S8. But another reason is the strong competition of the chinese, like Xiaomi, Huawei, Meizu, LeEco, ZUK, aso. Samsung already lost some market share and the chinese are gaining.
