GS3 took 55 days to hit 10 million, so it's not even close to approaching Apple sales for a launch quarter. So let's throw the GS3 to the side since it's not even relevant. Neither are the GS2 or original S.
GS4 shipped 10 million into the CHANNEL in 26 days. They shipped another 10 million in the next 41 days. Pretty big drop considering it took 50% longer to get the second 10 million.
Samsung never announced when they hit 30 million, however they did announce 40 million on Oct 24th. So they moved the first 20 million in a little over 2 months, and then took another 4 months to ship the next 20 million. That's a huge drop in sales. Considering Samsung only announced channel sales and not real sales it's tough to compare. Based on Samsung's numbers (and the rapid drop), there's NO WAY Samsung could have shipped 30 million GS4 phones in 3 months. More likely they probably shipped 25 million phones. Impressive, but still nothing like what Apple does.
Apple's closest quarter to coincide with the GS4 launch was Q3 2013, which ran from April to June. So just over 2 months of the GS4 launch quarter overlapped with Apples Q3. Apple SOLD 31.2 million iPhones in this quarter, while competing with a newly launched (and much hyped) GS4 and also just months before the next iPhone is going to be announced.
Sorry, bro, to have to refute your claims with actual numbers.
Now do you want to compare GS4 sales in the same quarter when the iPhone 5S/5C launched, and see how truly pathetic they were?
