Android now makes up more than half of all smartphones sold in Western markets
In European countries, Android recorded sales ranging from 49.6% of all smartphones in Italy to the whopping 84.1% of sales in Spain, Kantar’s 12-week data showed.
In Australia we see a similar picture of Android taking over and growing from 36.4% to 56.9%, while Apple’s iPhone share dropped by 6.4 percentage points to 30.5%.
The United States were the only Western market where Android’s share declined, taking heat from the iPhone. In the US, Android however still had 50.2% of the market, down from 57%, while the iPhone grew to 37.4%.
While the big two, Android and iOS, grew, smaller platforms got further pushed out of the view.
