Only scraps for the competition

When it comes to Android , mobile users are mostly living in Samsung's galaxy, with relatively few venturing off with other device makers. Based on the latest data from Localytics, Samsung has a 63 percent share of all Android mobile devices, leaving the competition to fight for the remaining 37 percent. Samsung's closest competitor in the Android space is HTC, which lays claim to just 6.5 percent of the market.

After HTC, it's LG with 5.9 percent, Sony with 5.6 percent, and Motorola with 5 percent. All the rest collectively account for the remaining 13.5 percent. At this rate, it won't be long until Samsung controls the aggregate of all other manufacturers by a ratio of 2-to-1.

On a model by model basis, Samung accounts for 8 out of the 10 most popular Android devices. Seven of them include:

  • Galaxy S III: 15.1 percent
  • Galaxy S IV: 7.4 percent
  • Galaxy S II: 5.2 percent
  • Galaxy Note II: 4.8 percent
  • Galaxy S III Mini: 1.5 percent
  • Galaxy Note: 1.4 percent
  • Galaxy Ace: 1.3 percent

After those devices, the most popular are the HTC One (1.3 percent), Droid Razr (1.1 percent), and Samsung's Galaxy Y (1.1 percent). It's pretty interesting to see the HTC One so far down the list.
