Android Is Winning The OS Race
03 Mar 15
Android OS

When it comes to smartphones a large decision factor lies in the operating system. While there are choices it looks like the winner is clear (at least for now). That winner is Google Android. 

It was recently revealed that in 2014 Google’s Android OS dominated the global smartphone market with a whopping 81.5% market share. Apple was a distant second. The rest barely made the radar. 

Together, Android and iOS hold 96% of the market share. The rest of the players include Windows, BlackBerry, Firefox, Sailfish and Ubuntu. 

Of the 1.3 billion smartphone handsets sold in 2014 Android phone makers sold over one billion handsets, with Apple selling 192 million. That left 108 million handsets to the rest of the operating system brands.
