Nearly 85 percent of smartphones running Android delivered worldwide




Android has further expanded its market share in the smartphone market, as has analyst firm Strategy Analytics quantified. Meanwhile, nearly 85 percent of smartphones worldwide delivered runs on Android.

This Android has its highest share of the smartphone market so far; in the figures from Strategy Analytics, which analyst firm may or may not publish, each year is shown in the last months of the year because then Apple devices releases and sells more. dip Nevertheless, the share of Android is still rising. iOS has a share of almost 12 percent, while Windows Phone does not exceed 2.7 percent.

The analyst firm looks to be no end to growth: it only mentions the upcoming great phones from Apple and Firefox OS as threats to Android. Strategy Analytics does not report how many of the Android devices Google services on board. Especially in China and Russia have Android devices without Google services in attendance. Some analysts make that distinction though, although applications typically are largely compatible, but many applications also rely on APIs from Google and do not work on devices without Google services.

For figures on operating systems of smartphones analyst firms the only option. Many manufacturers do not mention how many devices they supply with the operating system. Moreover mention many manufacturers, including market leader Samsung, not how smart phones they provide.
