Apparently, the Galaxy S5 sales is slumping down in the global smartphone market, which is allowing the iPhone 5s catch up with the increasing sales figure. To be precise, according to a survey conducted by Counterpoint in 35 markets which accounts for more than 90 percent of global sales as of May 2014, over 7 million iPhone 5S units were sold compared to 5 million units of the Galaxy S5 in May.
Since Android platform is more popular compared to the iOS in most of the markets, it is surprising to see people opting out for iPhone 5s smartphone instead of Samsung Galaxy S5. Again, on the other hand, the sales figures of the iPhone 5c is also said to be falling.
However, it is said that the iPhone still remains the best-selling smartphone across the US and Europe, with the iPhone 5s holding the first place in the US and the 5C across Europe.
According to the online report, the numbers are even worse in some markets for Samsung, especially in comparison to the success of the Galaxy S4.
Moreover, Samsung which has recently launched its latest Snapdragon (4G) variant of the Galaxy S5 smartphone in India is also trying its best to boost up the sales of its low-end smartphones. The company has already launched a slew of low-end smartphone with KitKat OS in India.
On the other hand, the Galaxy S5 might also launch with a Tizen OS as it was spotted online a month ago. It was in fact, shipped to India for testing purpose. Other devices like Samsung Z is also in the pipeline.
