Android smartphones sales driven by big screen phones, growing everywhere except for... the U.S.
Nearly every third Android device sold recently had a screen larger than 4.5 inches, a fact that would silence critics fiercely defending the usage superiority of smaller displays. With that big picture in mind, a bigger screened new iPhone can’t come any sooner.
Looking back at the stats, Android gained big in Europe where now two thirds of smartphones sold run on Google’s platform. And actually the same happened just about everywhere. In all major markets Android grew with one notable exception being the States where its share slipped by 4.5% while iOS grew by 9%.
“It is interesting to look at the impact a larger screen size has on how consumers use their smartphones, particularly as the line between tablets and smartphones becomes more blurred,” analyst Dominic Sunnebo said.
Take a look at just how interestingly smartphones sales moved in the last 12 weeks and how Android gains almost everywhere.
