Samsung Galaxy S 4 Black Mist

We all know by now that Samsung isn't afraid to disclose shipment numbers for its flagship hardware, having done so in the past for the first three Galaxy S models as well as the two Galaxy Notes. It should come as no surprise, then, that a Samsung executive recently talked up shipment numbers for the company's newest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S 4.

An unnamed Samsung executive has told South Korean newspaper Chosun Ilbo that worldwide shipments of the Galaxy S 4 had reached four million units at the end of April, just days after its April 26 debut. The Samsung exec went on to say that the Galaxy S 4's shipment total had hit six million units on May 10 and that it's expected that that figure will grow to 10 million by the end of May. As is usually the case with Samsung, it's worth noting that these stats are for shipments to retailers and carriers, not straight-up sales to consumers.

Samsung's Galaxy S line debuted with the original GT-I9000 model way back in March 2010, and since then, they've turned into the biggest devices in the Android ecosystem. The first three devices achieved total shipments of over 100 million units as of January 2013, and the Galaxy S III itself hit the 50 million shipped mark in March 2013. Considering all of that, it's no surprise to learn that the Galaxy S 4 is already doing pretty well for itself. It's also worth noting that the Galaxy S 4 is still in the process of rolling out to more operators around the world, including Verizon in the U.S., so there is a chance that Samsung could hit its goal of 10 million units shipped by the end of May. Have you picked up a Galaxy S 4 yet?

Jason Roets
Jason Roets I have an S3 but my gf just upgraded to an S4. I can not believe how man features and menues there are. I have to look at YouTube. And Google to figure out how to make simple changes. I do love the new screen and it is the best looking plastic frame phone on the market.

Jose Rodriguez
Jose Rodriguez I have the Note II and an iPhone 4s. I use Easy Phone Sync to sync iTunes with my Note II. I played with the S4 but find that many of the camera features are useless for me. Since all those features leave you with less storage space, I'll wait for the Note III and see what it offers. Until then, my Note II is good enough for me.

Huey Liggins
Huey Liggins Matthew I had that problem. I ripped the band aid. Couldn't be happier with my phone but I'm thinking of getting an ipod or maybe the Samsung pebble(probably not) for more simplicity and organization when syncing music and album art. The only thing I miss from iphone is the ipod but not its limits
Milton Gfl Williams
Milton Gfl Williams Ive got a view days of hands on time with the s4, its a really nice piece of kit my only complain is its too light, I prefer a slightly heavier device, so I'm waiting on the note 3.

Martin Cota
Martin Cota Miss my Windows phone, the commercials are true, everything is really just right there for you on the home and you don't realize how good it is until you leave it, but the S4 is by far my best android experience, and loving it since I had to switch to Sprint and they don't want to support WP8!

Hendrick Equis M
Hendrick Equis M yea got mine april 30th so far alot of the cam feats are useless [soundshot,animated photo] when there isnt much to share to or with Drama barely works and when it does not like promoted and eraser is by far the biggest disappointment since is a mode so you better be expecting some one to get in the shot so u can go into the mode prior.

Matthew Swanson
Matthew Swanson The HTC one was a tempting device.
Matthew Swanson
Matthew Swanson I prefer stock Android over TouchWhiz as well, but I found when using the GS4 that if I got Apex launcher installed it made the GS4 close enough to stock Android to be fantastic.
Devin Vosburgh
Devin Vosburgh Waiting...on...verizon
Matthew Swanson
Matthew Swanson Yes and I loved it. But for some reason I opted to keep using the iPhone 5 instead. The big screen is amazing, the battery life rocks, the camera is top of the line (though not quite as good as iPhone 5) but what always brings me back to iPhone is the simplicity and reliability and how everything just ties in to the ecosystem I spent years building up. It's just not possible to convert all of my vast media library to something Android-compatible and I'm too stuck in my ways with iOS. And now, with the prospect of a huge leap forward for iOS 7 on the horizon, I'm willing to stick it out a while longer and see what Apple has in store. If I could have an iPhone with the GS 4's battery and screen, I would be in hog heaven!
Mark Lucas
Mark Lucas I would except T Mobile is always the last to enter the door. They may get it in 10 years!?!? Their business model sucks.
