Samsung’s Galaxy S6 sales off to a blistering start; T-Mobile claims their Galaxy S6 sales have nearly doubled their total sales of the Galaxy S5

If T-Mobile’s sales are indicative of how the other carriers are faring, the little traction and sales Samsung may have lost last year with their Galaxy S5 are now nothing to worry about considering the numbers their new Galaxy S6 is putting up. According to T-Mobile, sales of the Galaxy S6 have already nearly doubled the total sales of the previous S5. Consumers have wanted Samsung to change things up a bit as they viewed the S4 and S5 as minor iterations rather than a new device. With the new S6, Samsung decided to finally change things up a bit with a revamped look and finally parted with their plastic materials and opted for a more “premium” look/feel. The reviews of the S6 have bode very well for Samsung and it seems nothing will slow this train down.

What do you guys think of the S6? I know not everyone is on board with Samsung’s decision to go with glass and removing expandable storage alongside the removable battery (including myself), but it is refreshing to see Samsung listening to it’s critics and changing things up a bit.

    I’m just hoping they don’t mess up the Galaxy Note line with non expandable memory and non removable battery. I might end switching to LG if that happens.

      I got the 64GB version and haven’t come close to filling that space. And the non removable battery actually made the phone design much slimmer and I have to say, didn’t like the iPhone 6 too much because I thought it was too think but it turns out it just didn’t feel right. This phone feels right, but if you want the expandable storage and battery size I understand that.

        I understand your point for the casual user, however; power users, will eat through that memory and battery like there’s no tomorrow. The Note series has always been known for providing the latest and greatest tech, and with as many options and functionality as possible. That’s the reason I love my Note 4 so much. Take those options away, and I might as well get an iPhone 6 plus. Android users choose Android because they want a choice, and I’m sorry, not to be rude or harsh, but if Samsung wants turn the Note into an iPhone clone, I’m going to chose not buy a Samsung this time around.

    Well I’ve had the S6 Edge for a week now and can say nothing tops it. It is the most amazing feeling phone you’ll ever hold, feels like liquid to the touch yet is surprisingly grippy in the hand, it is really beautiful in design(not as much of an iPhone knock off as it seems to be, feels way more extraordinary), it has the most beauiful display I’ve ever seen period(that includes a hand full of 4K TVs too), it is lightning fast easily beating the fastest phone which is the iPhone, and it’s camera is absolutely spectacular. I took a photo in 2 seconds and it came out beautifully and it only took 2 seconds because I didn’t think it would focus so well. Samsung has a lot to prove with future products, but they have finally made the perfect phone they always wanted to. This is coming from someone who dissed Samsung for years and hated them up until I decided to get the phone.

    Getting mine tomorrow from T-Mobile. I’m very excited, I like my S5, but tired of opening & closing the damn charging port. It will be nice to have something a little more solid from Samsung. The plastic didn’t bother me at all, but it is time for a change.

      Heck try out the wireless charging. Works great
