Pretty interesting statistics shared with journalists, research firm Strategy Analytics.
Experts reputable agencies estimate that the leader in the smartphone market continues to be the mobile operating system from Google.
The figures show that it significantly outperformed the iconic iOS. In Q3 2014 Android’s share increased to 84%.
This is far more than the system demonstrated in the past year. Then the record was only 81.4%.
For the same period in 2013 was sold only 206 million Android-devices. Now expanded to an impressive performance 268 million gadgets.
Achievements Apple much more modest: Strategy Analytics claims that for the last reporting period, the Cupertino-based company sold 39.3 million with iOS gadgets on board. Thus the share of the popular platform decreased to 12.3% (with a fixed 12 months ago slats 13.4%).
That allows Android to spread so effectively? This high-quality, constantly improve the software. Affordable electronics manufacturers, operators and enthusiasts on a free basis (almost).
The invention Google works fine on a device very different value: ultrabudgetary phones directly from China, the powerful flagship of Samsung and so on.
iOS, alas, is more limited. She is unable to go beyond the ecosystem Apple.
