LG has the biggest increase in Android market share since June
posted by Alan F. / Oct 14, 2014, 9:14 PM
The data was derived from following the web traffic of hundreds of millions of Android flavored phones and tablets from September 1 to September 30, 2014. The numbers were compared with the figures generated from June 1st through June 30th.
The forked version of Android used on the Amazon Kindle Fire line has surprisingly given Amazon the third largest market share for Android devices, at 6.9%. That is up .1pp from June. Surely it is not from the Amazon Fire Phone, which has not been selling that well. Motorola (6.4%, down from 6.7%) and HTC (4.8%, down from 5.5%) round out the top five. Sadly, Sony's lack of distribution has kept the web impact of its models down. That results in the company finishing in 11th place, behind Barnes and Nobel. As of the end of September, Sony had .7% of the Android market, down from the .9% it had at the end of June.

I would like to see Motorola increase their share.

Kinda buried the lead here. Yes, it is great LG has seen an increase. They freaking should as well- no manufacturer has improved their product more in the past couple of years. But.... Samsung STILL outsells the next 14 manufacturers combined (40.4% dwarfed by 57.4%). This chart really shows that even an "off" couple quarters by Samsung- which we have all heard about over and over- is still so far ahead of other Android manufacturers it is near comical. Maybe you can make the argument that Samsung doesn't make the best Androids if you want. But that is subjective. What isn't subjective is sales, which Sammy has and nearly no one else does.

I agree that Samsung and LG are very googd phones but I am suprised that chinese phones like Alcatel, Motorola, Zte are succesful in the USA. I do not know why americans support foreign industrialists from China to get rich. And I have a question: What is the name of the company between ZTE and Alcatel in the chart?

I'm not at all surprised to see this. Their are many consumers that love the option of removable batteries and SD cards. As I said a couple of weeks ago, I have rallied for the manufacturers to return theses options. I also predicted that LG would start gaining due to these options. As a side note to editors that review these phones. It would be wise to list removable batteries and expendable memory under "Pros" when giving pros and cons. Because, afterall, these are pros to today's smartphones. And in spite of tech sites trying to push the opposite, a good percentage of people really like these options. John B.
