Samsung has shipped 20 million Galaxy S4 since launch Samsung Mobile boss JK Shin has confirmed that the company has shipped 20 million Galaxy S4 since launch, a strong figure only surpassed by the iPhone.
The flagship device launched 68 days ago, and it reached the 20 million milestone much faster than its predecessor, the Galaxy S III. In fact, at this same point in its life, the S III had reached just 12.5 million sales.

Samsung was not able to catch the pace of the iPhone, however, as the iPhone 4S sold 21 million in the same time frame from launch, and the iPhone 5 sold 24 million.

Regardless, the S4 is the fastest selling Android device of all-time and a massive hit for its Korean maker.

They have a hit that is cool now if only they can make it not feel like a cheap piece of plastic. I hope HTC one dose well just to show there is a demand for good build quality.
