Nobody can disagree with the fact that the Samsung Galaxy S was one of the most successful Android phones in terms of sales. When the Galaxy S II was announced, we knew it was also going to be successful, but could they improve on those unbelievable numbers? So far, the answer is yes as it took them 55 days to sell their first 3 million units. The original Galaxy S took an extra month to accomplish the same total. Now all they need is to get Apple off their backs.
