Besides the Galaxy S4, the galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2, have helped Samsung Electronics to overtake Apple in sales. Samsung became the top 1 of smart phones in the USA in May 2013, and Apple turned to be the second one, followed by HTC and Nokia.

According to Samsung, upon the release of Galaxy S4, it has become the fastest selling smart phone in Samsung's history, with 10 million devices sold till to May 22.

It is also said that this device is going to be sold on June 26, 2013 and only the U.S. customers can reach it.

Samsung also has declared that they are going to launch a miniaturized variant of the Galaxy S4 and will release an "Active" variant with a water resistant case, shock resistance, and an 8 megapixel camera.

Michael Walkley, the Canaccord Genuity analyst, said, "We believe Samsung on the Strength of strong Galaxy S4, S III, and Note II sales surpassed Apple to gain top share of the USA smartphone market for the first time since the iPhone 5 launch." On the other hand, a report from Internet analytics company comScore said that Apple still held the top spot in the smartphone market overall.
