According to the latest mobile smartphone sales reports out of South Korea, the brand new LG G3 smartphone flagship is selling 25,000-30,000 units per day since its launch May 28th. This is outpacing sales of the Samsung Galaxy S5 by a 3-to-1 margin. Supposedly, the Galaxy S5 only sold at a rate of 7,000 to 8,000 per day in right after its launch. If this report is accurate, it could be a sign that the luster for Samsung is finally wearing off for consumers.

At first blush it's hard to believe, but if you factor in the big marketing push from LG in South Korea and pair that with the phone's premium looking materials and the world's first QHD display (amongst other high-end hardware), the picture becomes plausible. To be clear, LG has a long way to go before they will catch up with sales of the SGS5 globally. Regardless, this is nothing but good for LG's reputation and could be a sign of a future in which the smartphone industry is not dominated by an Apple/Samsung duopoly.

It will be interesting to see if LG can make any strong headway in the other 100 countries in which they launched the G3.
