270 million active Android users in China, Baidu says
Moreover, 52% of new users in the third quarter of the current year upgraded their existing Android devices, while 48% are completely new to the platform. Average smart phone users in China check their device 53 times a day and mainly use Wi-Fi when they need an internet connection. It's curious that 31% of daily active users still use the existing 2G networks, while only 23% benefit from 3G ones. When it comes to mobile apps, Chinese users now download slightly more, compared to 2012, but the daily usage of the downloaded apps has somewhat declined.

All because of Sony, Sharp, and Samsung.

Because android is free and needs no license fee. Lots of no name brand tablets and smartphones in china.

Ok then Windows should also follow the same policy to be relevant ... No License Fee for the OS.

You should talk to MS then. I have no control over their policies.

Wow, you know nothing.
In China, there are so many small no-name vendors producing Android clones without Google CTS certification. And people don't care or want to know about this.
Strangely, these non-certified ones are included in market share numbers, just like Sammy counting given away ones as sold units in reports.
PS : Maybe you need Gargamel as your tutor.
