Android is a Whopping 70% of the Smart Phone Market



(this is more tech board than gaming board, but we all know what happens in android vs iphone threads that get started on the OT)

Toms Hardware
quote:

Google commands 70-percent with Android while Apple falls in a distant second with 21-percent via the iPhone.

100 - 91 = 9. Article states that windows phone 8 is now 3%, so that leaves 6% of the smart phone world to RIM.
Never ever ever thought I would see that few blackberries in the world

It just seems like I see so many more iPhones in the wild than android


I can tell they've grown market share but most everyone I know has an iPhone

Im in the market for one or the other. I have 90%+ people telling me to get Galaxy but I hardly ever see them in the field.

an awful lot of that is if you live in an area with strong AT&T coverage.
since the original few iphones only worked on ATT, users in those markets bought and usually will not switch. areas without strong ATT coverage are saturated with android.

also adding to your perception is that there is only one iphone, even if its a different gen you still know immediately its an iphone.

there are more android models than there are colors it seems.

Anti, I have the Note (the first one) and I love it. I don't know how these new iPhones are and I don't care about the phone war, I just know I like my phone.

That's another reason why I like it. I don't like the small screen on the iPhone, but to each his own.

Yeah I agree that the iphone's screen is too small.

I have the Razr and the screen size is nice. The S3 or whatever S there on will probably be my next purchase.

Seriously though, can you even fit it in your pocket? Or do you have a sweet belt clip holster?

Yeah, it fits in my pockets no problem. I have a thin case for it that isn't tacky, so it works.

Android users are usually poor.

More poor ppl in the world than well off. Another reason is that Apple does not offer an iPhone to china and south korea's largest service provider. They should have a phone available for them this summer.
