    Samsung & Android Absolutely Crushing the Competition in Latest Gartner Tracking


    The latest Gartner Marketing Analytics are out and from the numbers they compiled it becomes obvious that Samsung and Android are completely destroying their competition. Here's a bullet point list of the most relevant figures below just to give you a quick glimpse of the domination:
    • Samsung sold 64.7 million smartphones which was 30.8% of the total global marketshare
    • This was a 59% increase from the 40.6 million it sold in the same quarter last year
    • For perspective, Apple sold 38.8 million iPhones during this same time which was an 18.2% market share
    • LG was in third with 10 million smartphones sold, or 4.8% total global marketshare
    • A win for Samsung translates into a win for Android to the tune of 74.4% of the global marketshare for smartphone operating systems
    • Conversely, iOS dropped to just 18.2% of the global marketshare (from 22.5%), Blackberry dropped to just 3% and Microsoft gained a point to 2.9%

    It became obvious last year that Samsung and Android would start wrecking the competition, but to this degree so quickly is a bit unexpected. Keep in mind, that these numbers reflect the quarter before Samsung even released the Galaxy S4, so it hasn't been accounted for to derive these statistics.
