That that Q3 has come and gone, we can look back at smartphone market share and see just how well the current players are doing. Android takes a huge 81.3% of the pie, leaving Apple just 13.4% and the rest of the players a skimp 5.3% to split between themselves.
Comparing this with the same quarter of 2012, Android saw 75% and Apple enjoyed 15.6%. This means that Android has climbed 6.1% while Apple has lost 2.2%, something that should have people wondering what is going on. The numbers are courtesy of Strategy Analytics. Google should continue to claw at that smartphone market share with phones like the Galaxy S4, Note 3 and just-announced Nexus 5.
