According to Counterpoint’s channel survey across 35 countries, Apple’s iPhone 5s continues to be the bestselling phone in the world, a spot that many expected to be taken by Samsung’s Galaxy S 5. The highly anticipated Galaxy S5 comes in at second place but still a quite distant number two in terms of (sell through) unit sales. The iPhone 5c shipments continue to decline but Apple continued clearing excess inventory for the iPhone 5c during the month. apple iPhone 5c sales put it behind Samsung’s last year’s flagship Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note III.

Just a matter of reality before you mindraped yourself with samshit having any last hopes any longer after bigger screen for iPhone comes out, because then the only purpose there is for samshit s5 will be unsecured shit and iOS for smooth functionality, suck on it. XD

Where is iphone 5? I can't believe that its not in the list. This is the first iphone with 1GB of memery. Maybe the report combine the 5 and 5s to be able to stay on top. This is cheating.

Doesn't mean anything. Samsung has many devices that divide the number. When the iPhone 6 comes in two different flavors, it's number will be shared between devices. So then possibly samsung will take the lead. But I don't really care either way who is in the lead. I care about healthy competition for better products in my pocket.

Yeah but what about who released the most phone (and the same ones that just look different don't count such as s4 active, exhibit, player, etc.).
