The Samsung Galaxy S5 is the hot ticket right now, and British retailer, Phones 4U, sends word of just how hot the launch has been. It’s in no way a surprise that a ton of people wanted the Galaxy S5, but Phones 4U has said that launch day sales were double that of its predecessor, the Galaxy S4.

Pre-orders alone were “escalating significantly” ahead of those for the Galaxy S4 last year ahead of the launch, and the Galaxy S5 made up 40% of all contract sales at the retailer on April 11. The news comes alongside the reports of long lines at Samsung Experience Stores throughout the UK at the early launch on April 10.
