Report: Samsung ships 10 million Galaxy S5 units in 25 days According to a report from South Korea, Samsung's Galaxy S5 has shipped 10 million Galaxy S5 handsets in 25 days, beating the Galaxy S4.
The previously releases Galaxy S4 smartphone reached 10 million shipments in 27 days, and the Galaxy S3 before it hit the milestone after 50 days. Of course, the figures don't represent sales to customers but it shows a considerable demand for the Galaxy S5.

That demand is coming despite some fairly critical reviews of Samsung's latest flagship model, which has been blasted for its "cheap" design characteristics and for lacking hardware innovations.

Shortly after its launch, a shake-up at Samsung saw Chang Dong-hoon step down as head of Samsung's mobile design team, replaced with Lee Min-hyouk. Chang will continue to lead the design center at Samsung though.

This phone lineup is the epitome of "mediocrity" nowadays. So run-of-the-mill and redefining "stagnant".

I think iPhone 6 may have the edge this time round if Apple bring out a newly designed handset. If they bring out a rehash design then they will get the same reaction and criticism.

If a person buy the product, then his/her criticism decrease around 95%.
