Samsung Galaxy S5 first day sales surpass predecessor's by 30 percent Reports out of Korea seem to confirm that the Samsung Galaxy S5 is selling well, or at least significantly better than its predecessor, the S4.
Setting a Samsung record for first day sales, the smartphone has topped the previous mark by 30 percent.

In some key European markets, the S5 doubled the first day sales of the S4, and would have likely been even higher had there been more supply to keep up with demand, says the report.

Launching in 125 nations, with 25 more to join in the coming days, the S5 was the biggest launch for Samsung, ever.

The S5 features a 1080p 5.1-inch display and runs on Android 4.4.2 + TouchWiz. Under the hood is a 2.5GHz Quad core processor, 2GB RAM, 16/32GB internal storage, microSD slot, dual cameras, 16MP (rear) with 4K video support, 2.0MP (front), LTE Cat 4, 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac MIMO(2x2) Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 BLE, NFC and a built-in IR remote to control TV and other devices.
