During its quarterly earnings call this week, Google confirmed that it has seen a “decline in Nexus” sales in recent months. The fall is being attributed by some to the Nexus 6, which couples a super-sized display with a high price tag.

The curved glass display on the Galaxy S6 edge may be considered somewhat gimmicky, but that hasn’t stopped it from being incredibly popular.

According to one report out of Samsung’s native South Korea, the S6 edge has sold just as many units as the regular Galaxy S6 since the devices made their debut on April 10.

Samsung’s smartphone sales may have dipped in recent months, but its new Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are already off to an excellent start. Since their unveiling at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona earlier this month, more than 20 million handsets have been pre-ordered.

Samsung isn’t the only smartphone maker experiencing a decline in sales thanks to Apple’s latest iPhones. New data shows that the popularity of the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus caused Android sales to decline for the first time ever during the fourth quarter of 2014.

Motorola’s latest handsets continue to be an incredible success worldwide, helping the company sell more than 10 million handsets during the third quarter of 2014.

It’s a record for the Moto maker, which saw its revenue reach new highs during Q3. Lenovo, which acquired Motorola from Google last year, said it was able to beat investor expectations for smartphone sales, which were already more than doubled for this quarter.
