There's no question about it -- Samsung's two new flagship smartphones are very hot candidates for purchase assuming you have enough change in your wallet. Media reports from South Korea are claiming that the manufacturer has already sold more than 75000 units in the first three days since launch.
The Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+ have been available in South Korea since last Thursday. With over 25000 sold per day, this is more than twice as many Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge models sold at launch in September 2014. According to the news agency, the Note 4 and Note Edge sold about 10000 per day the moment they became available.
It's worth noting that Samsung has little competition at the moment as Apple and others have yet to launch or even reveal their flagship phablets. The Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+ already have 30 percent of the market in its home country. In fact, Samsung itself controls about 70 percent of the mobile market. Assuming strong performance around the world, this could pave the way to better bottom lines for the manufacturer again.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
