The new «flagship» LG has started strong. For the time being only is on sale in the country in which has been developed in South Korea, but the G3 has started on a high. And it is that, according to the diaries of the Asian country, in just five days he managed to put on the market more than 100,000 units. It is not bad.
However, to interpret well this figure is necessary to put it in perspective. Let’s compare their success which won not long ago one of its main competitors, the Samsung S5 Galaxy. This latest mobile sold, according to South Korean media, between 7,000 and 8,000 units each day during the first five days, while the G3 is selling at the rate of one 20,000 units per day. It seems that the first round of this fight is gaining it LG.
But this company is not getting only bow to one of its most important competitors; It is also doubling sales obtained last year during the first days of launch of their previous «flagship», the G2, which sold some 10,000 units per day.
These early indicators are very good. There is no doubt. But we must bear in mind that at the moment only has emerged in South Korea, and global figures might change when you reach other markets. Globally, the S5 Galaxy sold 10 million units for the first 25 days in stores, and over 2 million within the first 5 days. But Apple, which managed to sell holds the record for the most powerful boot more than 5 million iPhone 5 in just three days. LG has a fantastic smartphone, but it will not be easy to exceed these records. We’ll see what happens.
