iQmetrix is behind the numbers, measuring the sales of the Galaxy S5 over its launch weekend - from April 11-13, sampling over 15,000 stores across the US, comparing them to sales of the iPhone 5S from September 20-23, 2013. iQmetrix's data says that the Galaxy S5 accounted for 25% of total phones sold in the US and Canada during its launch, while the iPhone 5S only accounted for 18% during its launch.

 

From here, we know that Samsung had great launch day sales of the Galaxy S5, where it hopes to ship 35 million Galaxy S5 smartphones in Q2 2014 alone. Apple on the other hand, just announced it had sold 43.7 million iPhone's in its last quarter - but those 43.7 million iPhone's are all iPhone's sold - iPhone 5, 5S, 5C, and so on. Right now, Samsung seems to be really putting the pressure on Apple.
