Samsung’s expectations with freshly released flagship smartphones Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8-Plus may well be high but apparently; these smartphones failed to ‘charm’ the US community. The Americans seem to love Galaxy S5 more, as is evident from the South Korean smartphones’ installed base figures i.e. 15.6% share in February, 2017.

The study further reveals that two other smartphones grabbing second and third spot on the list are Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S6; with 11.5% and 11.4% share, respectively. And believe it or not but the installed base Galaxy S8 Edge counted for was mere 5.8% which is surprisingly very low; with the US being world’s leading marketplace for smartphones.

As per the findings of the study, Samsung over the years has managed to develop and retain quite a repute and strong loyal consumer base all over the United States of America. Facts and figures suggest that as much as 28% of US consumers owned one or more Samsung devices last year and at the time of up gradation; they opted for a new Samsung device again.
