Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 4 has been on sale for just under a month now, and the South Korean company has already sold more than 4.5 million units, according to industry sources. That’s a pretty impressive figure for most smartphone makers, but its predecessor was doing ever so slightly better this time last year.


Amazon is quickly learning that 3D gimmicks and a lack of third-party app support aren’t attributes consumers tend to look for in a smartphone, with one report suggesting that the retail giant has sold fewer than 35,000 Fire Phones since the device made its debut back in July.


Happy 4th of July, USA! Now is the perfect time to enjoy an extended weekend with your family, enjoying a barbecue and watching some fireworks. And while you are at it, how about some excellent app, games and accessories deals as well?

Despite criticisms about its cheap plastic form factor and slow TouchWiz operating system, the Galaxy S5 has become Samsung’s fastest-selling smartphone to date. The device has been so successful that during its launch weekend earlier this month, it sold more units than the iPhone 5s.

Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi is known for its budget ranged handsets like the Redmi and the recently launched Redmi Note. Thanks to low-cost devices like these, the sales volume of the company is pretty high. And according to new figures published by the company, it has sold over 11 million smartphones in 2014 already, which is a remarkable feat considering that we’re only three months into the year.
