Here are the top 10 Android devices across the world
Handset Detection has published a curious infographic about 7 of the world’s most populous and/or developed nations illuminating the differences and similarities between them.
Not surprisingly, Samsung devices were in the top 10 list of Android smartphones in all of them, with Galaxy S II and S III enjoying huge popularity. But there are some stark differences. While in France Android tablets make up nearly 28% of all Android devices, in India tablets account for only 3% of the grand total. And while developed markets prefer handsets with sharper displays, India for instance has a larger share of more affordable devices with resolution such a 320 x 240 pixels.
Interestingly, the United States actually has the most variety in Android. In the US there are 1360 unique different Androids. A lot of that has to do with the carrier situation as every operator in the States feels obliged to rebrand a device with its own name, logo and often change the looks of it. Still, it’s a mind-boggling number - 1360 different Android devices. For this and more facts about Android’s presence across the globe, check out the infographic below.

Interesting. Seems like the Galaxy S II is still very widely popular across the world. Cool.

10. TechBizJP08 (Posts: 495; Member since: 25 Mar 2013)
Now the price of S2 is going down. With a nice specs and updated up to jellybean, its quite a catch.
21. noim1 (Posts: 297; Member since: 15 May 2012)
Yes i just got me self a NEW S2 with a hefty price of $265 !!! & i am loving it !!! Samsung Rocks the Android World..
23. noim1 (Posts: 297; Member since: 15 May 2012)
Of all the Galaxy series Design I think the Galsxy S II 's design is the Best of them ALL ...
31. alexzibrit (Posts: 67; Member since: 15 Jan 2013)
Um It does have One, Most Of the S2 Variants have one

See the USA has the highest diversity of unique Android handsets. So can you please stop complaining about iPhone "taking over" the USA?
5. Nathan_ingx (Posts: 3012; Member since: 07 Mar 2012)
Dude, i want to agree with you, Android to Android, but this poll is only about Android devices around the world with no addition of other OS. I don't understand the overtaking news of iOS in the US but you can't put it here. I mean, this is about Android, and US has the maximum share of it.
9. Timmehor (Posts: 599; Member since: 09 Mar 2013)
Just a lot of people complain of the USA and it's huge consumer base buying "iPhones" ... Yes the USA is Apples strong point but there is a lot of Android phones there too, well must be.
11. TechBizJP08 (Posts: 495; Member since: 25 Mar 2013)
It means there are still a lot of consumer using Android phones, and it's still is popular. That's what he mean..

So many people buying plastic samsung, why don't I see the haters yet?
12. ebubekir26 (Posts: 311; Member since: 21 Dec 2012)
Because it's simply awesome, Samsung haters are jealous because their smartphone's don't have The Smart features Samsung offers,
Plastic... idk why but some people care more about the design than features, That's just stupid

The S2, Despite having a very low build quality, is actually a really good device, even now.
I don't know about the S3. S3's main selling point was its performance against other Androids, but it really was not that great of a device compared to others. I guess Samsung's marketing did a fine job.
26. Taters (Posts: 3030; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
Lol very low build quality eh? Is that why it lasts forever and doesn't scuff up at all?
22. noim1 (Posts: 297; Member since: 15 May 2012)
Plastic is the main reason i bought it ..I can change my Battery easily ...if u have a aluminium body then u r bound to have dents,scratches,death grips...trust me plastic feels very nice & good to hold in hand , very comfortable.....
I have used a Xperia P , HTC Sensation & the experience with aluminium body was not pretty..i completely bumped,dented & scratched my Xperia P's body in a Week...& its very expensive to change the body , where as u can change Samsung's parts with ease & low cost...

Gosh, theres so many thing you don't know.
Try owning a Samsung device for a bit, you'll understand.

If the nexus play store was available worldwide, the Nexus 4 would easily beat competition. *sigh*
8. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5598; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
so the Droid Razr (MAXX) is the second most used handset in the US huh? pretty impressive considering it's only offered on one carrier.
16. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4023; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
It is impressive, the Razr Maxx has about 1/3 of the sales of the GS3 in the US while only being on one carrier, while the GS3 is on 6. If Motorola had expanded their availability of the Razr series to maybe 3 or 4 other carriers they might have had more sales than the GS3 in the US.
Let's see how they approach availability with the X, maybe we'll have a new top Android manufacturer in the US.
29. g2a5b0e (Posts: 2189; Member since: 08 Jun 2012)
That's a faulty assumption. Firstly, the Maxx is on Verizon. That's over a third of the total subscribers of the 6 carriers the S3 is on. Secondly, not all phones sell the same across all carriers. The Droid branding has been around on Verizon since Android's inception on the carrier, so it has years of marketing weight behind it. It wouldn't necessarily do as well on another carrier if it was just suddenly released now.
24. wumberpeb (Posts: 433; Member since: 14 Mar 2011)
you could say the same thing about the HTC Evo 4G... Only on one carrier (Sprint, much smaller than Verizon) and it still holds a large chunk of the smartphone pie despite being 3 years old this June

See? I knew it! Samsung is always on the top!
But I know Nokia rules in India, right? :)

Look at that, another report that proves people are buying the high end android devices over the low end, hopefully I don't see people talking about the matter ever again

Whilst i hate to split hairs, it appears the map for Great Britain has included an extra country. Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom, not Great Britain. This is anal, I understand that, but if you're going to present information, it should be accurate or it brings everything else you present in to disrepute.
19. ahhxd717 (Posts: 317; Member since: 08 Dec 2011)
I'm surprised about the Razr Max being so popular here in the USA, since it's only on Verizon. Really nice phone though. I actually see quite a few people with it on campus. Well, everyone has an iPhone here, then probs galaxy S3, and I still see quite a few Evos. Seeing more and more with Lumias as well

And now we can put to rest the misguided comments about Android dominating just because of cheap phones, lots of flagship devices in these lists.
25. Taters (Posts: 3030; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
The living legend, the GS2. I wasn't addicted to phones until I played with the GS2.
27. Jyakotu (Posts: 819; Member since: 12 Dec 2008)
Samsung pretty much dominates with Android because they release different variations of the same phone.
32. alexzibrit (Posts: 67; Member since: 15 Jan 2013)
Um that makes no since, The Variants Only change the processor and maybe screen size, ram or button layout either than that they are exactly the same, The Only phone that had variants that were all truly different was the Original Galaxy and each of them have a completely different name

8 out of 10 droids in India are Sammy's! Would love to see HTC promote their phones a bit more and Sony is doing good lately, but not surprised to see 'Generic Android' devices top the list.
