Google have a huge lead over Apple in the European market, where Android takes a huge 70.4% of the mobile OS market. This leaves Apple with just 17.8% and Windows with 6.8%, these numbers are thanks to the latest OS barometer figures from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech.

The big reason behind Android's dominance is thanks to Samsung's Galaxy range of smartphones, which makes up over half of all smartphones sold across Europe. Android should continue to keep this dominance going into the future, as I don't think Apple can do anything in the short term to swing things around. This is something that Google have on their side for once.
