Xiaomi and Samsung are breaking records, all while LG is getting ready to join the fight with the upcoming G4.
We knew Xiaomi had accomplished something astounding when we found out they sold millions of phones in just 12 hours, but we had no idea that was enough to break a Guinness world record. The Chinese manufacturer now holds the world record as the company which has sold the most phones on a single online platform for 24 hours.
They managed to sell 2.11 million devices in just half a day. Now, I wonder how that number would look if they actually had the anniversary event going for 24 hours.
Opinion: This is huge, guys. I mean, Xiaomi has managed beat huge competitors like Samsung and Apple. And they are just getting started.
Samsung may not be breaking world records, but they are certainly breaking their own sell records. The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are set to launch tomorrow, yet they have already nearly doubled sales of the Galaxy S5, during the first 10 days. They also mentioned HTC One M9 sales have surpassed those of the One M8 during the first period of pre-sale time.
Opinion: The Samsung Galaxy S6 was all but guaranteed to be a hit. Not only are their sales always outstanding, but this time they have created a device that surpassed every expectation we had of Samsung. The new flagship is not only powerful, but Sammy has gone back to the drawing board to improve aesthetics and build quality. We haven’t been this excited about a Samsung phone in a while, and it seems a lot of people share the same sentiment.
LG hasn’t joined the epic fight of 2015’s flagship smartphones, but they are getting ready to do so. LG has been teasing the device, and one of their ways to make hype about it is by continually showing off its components. Today we are taking a look at their cameras.
It was revealed the LG G4’s camera would be special. In fact, it will come with an f/1.8 aperture that beats even the Samsung Galaxy S6, but today LG Innotek is showing off the actual camera modules. The rear-facing shooter will feature a 16 MP sensor that allows for 80% more light exposure compared to the G3. In addition, the front facing camera has been bumped up to 8 MP.
Opinion: I love what LG has done with its flagship smartphones in the past. I was actually a proud LG G2 owner, but the LG G3 disappointed us quite a bit. This is why I am really hoping LG can win my heart back.
