9 in 10 smartphone sold in Spain are Android, more than China

By | July 11, 2014


It’s facts time ladies and gentlemen, according to the data gathered by Kantar Worldpanel. Today we are investigating the worldwide piece of the pie of smartphones deals in the three months leading into May 2014, and again it is uplifting news for our operating system of choice.

Android goes with its strength in the larger part of real world markets, securing, 73, 62, and 83 percent of the market of the overall industry in the five largest EU countries, the US, and China respectively. Japan is the main country to challenge this pattern with 52 percent of offers going to Apple, in contract to the 47 percent offer of the business caught by Android. Windows and Blackberry proceed with their streak of hopeless deals over the globe, although some sections of Europe appear to have a weak corner for Microsoft’s operating system, which we will take a look in a moment.

In the United States, most of the people switching to Samsung were LG and HTC users.

Although Android holds the largest sales share across the world but Apple is still holding on as one of the largest brands in markets like the Europe and United States. In the US, the Galaxy S5 from Samsung was the second highest selling Android smartphone in May, leaving just behind the iPhone 5S. Samsung’s expected total sales claimed 36.8 percent of the market, while Apple’s sales accounted only 4 percent less, which is 32.5 percent. It seems like these market shares are rather locked down in the US, with only 8 percent of Samsung’s sales coming from earlier iPhone users.

Surprisingly, the UK shows a very similar market between iOS and Android as the United States does. Spain and Italy, on the other hand, seem to buy Apple smartphones products almost as much they do Windows smartphone, a trend that does not come to be reflected anywhere in the global. Spain comes out as the most Android loving nation of this planet, according to the statistics, with a whopping 87 percent of sales in May 2014 being an Android family. If I talk about the sale of iOS in percent, Spain purchases fewer iPhones than China. See the image for more detail.
