AnTuTu: the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 was the most popular Android smartphone of Q1 2015

AnTuTu has published a list of the top ten most popular Android smartphones that people from across the globe have used to run the AnTuTu benchmark app on. As it turns out, the most popular Android smartphone of Q1 2015 at the global was the Samsung Galaxy Note 4

9.87 percent out of all the Android smartphones used to run the AnTuTu benchmark app between January 1st and March 31st were some version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. The Samsung Galaxy S5 took the second place with 7.68 percent, while the Xiaomi Mi Note took the third place with 6.89 percent. The global top five is completed by the LG G3 (6.53 percent) and the Xiaomi Mi 4 (6.23 percent).

AnTuTu has also published the results of its test for several key markets around the globe. In the US, the Galaxy Note 4 wins again with a share of 9.87 percent of all tests, followed by the Galaxy S5, the LG G3, the Google Nexus 6 and the OnePlus One. For details on other markets, follow the source link below.

Although AnTuTu also has benchmark apps for both of the other major mobile operating systems, iOS and Windows Phone, the company only considered Android smartphones for this chart. This is a bit unfortunate, as it would have been very interesting to learn how the iPhone 6 and the larger iPhone 6 Plus compare in the AnTuTu popularity chart.

Samsung has been the global leader after Nokia collapse, and this wonderful flow is going to last forever.

Still on the Note 4. The S6 is fantastic, but I was never going smaller. The Note 4 remains the best phablet sized phone available. We'll see what the Note 5 has to offer.

It is a useless fact , No hater here. But seriously what is 10% really. ??? Out of all androids? Haha so low end. Mid range. And upper they got 9.87. Big whoop. I dont see a real point to say which phones get most benchmarks. Speed tests. Most internet usage. Which ones are twittered off the most. Its all pointless. Click and read articles. To get us all to comment against. What would be a real news is to see how well the whole Note 4 and note edge / galaxy s6 and s6 edge numbers sre doing as whole right now. Compared to iphone. This is were the war really counts. I mean. Technically this is why people say iphone sells so great. 50 million of one model. Ok ill give u two cuz they combine the 6 and 6s sales. But with the people debating if they want a phablet with stylus or a just a flagship is what counts with samsung. So ppl choose either phone debating on screen. Compatibility. Total number should of both lines should be compared to iphone. That would be a better debated topic

The Note 4 does have a camera hump, albeit not nearly as large.

Note 4 is a bigger S5 with a slight enhancement to camera and processor. Every Note X is the practically the same as every Samsung Galaxy S (X+1) (X = Galaxy Note number)note = s2, note 2 = s3, note 3 = s4, note 4 = s5, and soon note 5 = s6. This time around they had a major update to the note series as far as processor goes.

That's because in Brazil the price drops to around U$$ 570,00 (R$ 1700,00) and sells a lot last days.

I'm looking to get a Note 4 myself, but I don't see how visits to a website I've never heard of mean jack? Sales numbers are the only reliable indicator of popularity. The Note might well come out on top there too, but I couldn't care less about the preferences among people who think benchmarks are meaningful.

Note 4 with Snapdragon definitely the way to go. I have both versions, well had both. The Exynos is terrible, same choppy lag on Web pages with script. Problem really is the damn GPU in the Exynos. It's crap.

Interesting to find that the S5 was second in spite of everyone saying the S5 was a horrible seller for Samsung. John B.
