Samsung topped 6 million Galaxy S6 smartphone units sold in less than one month, according to the Counterpoint research group.




Furthermore, the April 10 to April 30 sales windows of the S6 and S6 Edge proved to be better than the Galaxy S5 in the same time frame in 2014 - and could surpass the overall popularity of the Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.


"The Samsung Galaxy S6 series has a chance to become the top selling smartphone overtaking Apple's iPhone 6 series, if production issues are solved," said Peter Richardson, Research Director at Counterpoint, in a statement published by Reuters.


Even though Google Android continues to dominate the mobile operating system market, Samsung's phone lead has been put under continued pressure. However, it looks like the S6 and S6 Edge could help Samsung turn things around, especially with consumers and reviewers seeming pleased with both phones.
