How true is that though?

AT&T/Apple said that the iPhone 5 sold 5 million units in a weekend launch back in September.
It's a marketing claim made by marketeers and should be taken with a pinch of salt.

If you looked into the detail of what any of these claims really meant they would be hazy to say the least. I'm sure that the S4 has sold very well and will continue to sell well but these claims are all a bit meaningless.
