Sorry, Google: Samsung has flat-out conquered Android

Samsung Android Device Market Share

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.
