How popular is the Galaxy S5? Samsung’s latest flagship has broken its release date in South Korea, been widely hyped and anticipated stateside, and seen one of the larger worldwide rollouts in recent memory. That all contributes to a recent study by Localytics, which say the Galaxy S5 is already responsible for nearly 1% of Android devices worldwide.

The 0.7% Localytics claims for the Galaxy S5 is a worldwide metric, so it spans the 125 countries and territories the GS5 was launched in on (or near) April 11. Localytics also points out that Galaxy S5 sales topped early Galaxy S4 sales, which could put them on pace to outsell the predecessor device we’ve all compared it to.

The study, which ranged from launch day to April 18, has Localytics saying the early numbers are “especially impressive”, and puts the device on a similar trajectory to the iPhone 5S. The regional breakdown notes the handset is still US centric at 64%, but Europe also makes a respectable showing.

In a saturated space, Samsung’s Galaxy S5 stands out as perhaps the flagship Android device. At nearly 1% implementation in just a week, it’s clear consumers want the latest from Samsung. Did you buy one? Tell us in the comments section below.

    Samsung will take over the market, At work I’ve been noticing more iPhone/Apple lovers, either switching completely or just come and ask the Samsung Experience Consultants , What’s going with Galaxy devices and why their better than ios.After I leave them jaw dropped and amazed with a demo, they either switch or accept the fact Androidand Samsung offer much more without costing and arm and a leg.

    I don’t know why damaging has to stock all these features into android. Who really uses that eye scroll thing:? Or any of the air stuff? They really need to slim down Touchwiz.

    Had s5…not so much of the feature (heartbeat n fingerprint)…rather see how touchwiz couldnkill snapdragon 801…not too bad. Perf similar to htc one. A db tap scr to on like htc or lg would b nice on s5. I guess pride stands in the way
