So Samsung wins
The only top sold are S III and Note II, even One X didn't get that attention although it had been released earlier.

Quite true.

Even if there are 35% apple devices. Most if not all uses some kind of google's services. Youtube.. google search.. google maps.. gmail etc etc..

With the release of ios6, they have major complains when they remove the stock youtube app and stock google map apps.

Proves that apple devices can never be free from the search giant.

I agree its poor form to make such a lame math error...especially for a stats company like Nielson. However it's a just a rounding error. They've rounded everything UP to the nearest whole number.
It only means stats are out by at most 1%.

It's a really dumb thing to do but it's not that big of a deal. Get over it people. The point being made by the stats is still correct and is the topic here.

Total is 101%, but consider that these values have been rounded off. It's an acceptable variance. While it's good to be PROPER critics, just being critics for the sake of criticizing is stupid.

LOOOL its statistics, they round things up, probably something there was above .5 and they rounded up like a 1.5 in wp 4.5 in op 35 in apple 7.4 BB and a 51.6 android, add it up 100%, round and add it up its 101%. Theres no mistake its how things are done, and yes its reliable.
