All of Google’s marketing clout hasn’t been enough to reduce Samsung’s total dominance of its Android platform. The latest data from Localytics estimate that Samsung devices now account for 63.3% of all Android devices in the entire world, a dominant share that has left rival manufacturers far behind. All other major Android vendors are stuck with single-digit market shares including HTC (6.5%), LG (5.9%), Sony (5.6%) and the Google-owned Motorola (5%). What’s more, Samsung devices account for the top 7 most popular Android devices in the world, led by the Galaxy S III and Galaxy S IV flagship smartphones. The only non-Samsung devices to crack the top 10 most popular Android devices are the HTC One and the Motorola Droid RAZR. Localytics’ chart breaking down Android market share follows below.
