AnonD-109004, 01 Nov 2013A big thanks to samsung for taking Android to such a top level and vice versa. So google and s... moreIt's unwise to come here with unilateral statement. how can one utilize samsung phones many as they are? And it is not only samsung that is using android. You must be grateful for HTC who introduced Android to be where it is today. go away with childish brain

You are right on the expensive part.... not sure about the premium as is seen by the ever increasing list of hardware and software issues with apple.
You must all be forgetting that Apple own all of the iOS marketshare while Android is shared by 1234567890 OEMs. So it's basically 1 guy vs. 1234567890 others. Apple is still very dominant. 2% less from Y-o-Y marketshare doesn't mean they've sold less of their premium expensive iDevices. It's just that there is an increase in volume of shipment of cheap Android phones. And Apple don't need to make their OS open. Not everybody is cool with malwares on their devices. iOS is great as it is. And there is a huge market for 4" phones. Not everyone wants to carry a tablet with them all the time.
Steve Job's "Thermonuclear war" on android has failed miserably...
I guess that's what happens if you don't move with the times ans still have small screens, itunes and a heavily restricted iOS.
AnonD-115286, 01 Nov 2013Even though I am an Android fan, but domination is not a good thing for us, the consumers, hop... moreYou're correct man, ios is for money not for competition they made their os to be exclusive and make the price higher, if iphone 5s change to android os with thats specs 1.2ghz dual core and 326ppi with 4" screen display i can say it would not sell like android of today with higher specs. If they want a competition try to sell thier ios to other manufacturer and i can tell that iphone is behind for the specs.

AnonD-199490, 01 Nov 2013as i think in 2015 android down to 60%-70%- because seriously there is noting much new now abo... morein my opinion,there's many possibilities in Android than other OS because it is open source .
I have galaxy s2 and after the last Jelly bean update, celphone always lag and freezing. I think it happen because of android. I love samsung but Only this reason, i think i have to buy iphone :-/
Anonymous, 01 Nov 2013Not surprised at this. A lot of low end smart phones run on android only, thats were Windows ... moreyeah and the 10 million galaxy note 3 have nothing to do with it... or the 40 milion s4... you're talking like samsung are only selling cheap phones while in truth it is their top end devices that are making the difference...
Not surprised at this. A lot of low end smart phones run on android only, thats were Windows and apple is losing out. On top of that, a lot of plans in Canada and United States have free android phones, on 2 year deals. Yes. "free" That's why "android" is doing well. Because of low cost cheap smart phones.
common guys ur still waiting for android to fell down, apple's fans keep dreaming! android is open nd available to modifications, smartphones makers still thinking that android is safe nd secure to sell nd their money is gonne be back ASAP. when the global smartphone shipments gets down, is gonna be for all.

Small correction to the report Redmond is in Washington state and not in Washington DC.
