Samsung and HTC are reportedly responsible for 86% of Android sales in the United Kingdom according to a new report from Kantar Worldpanel. That’s not a surprising fact, especially considering that both manufacturers typically pump out phones as fast as they can make them. I’m only slightly kidding, the two phone makers also make several of the world’s best Android smartphones and, to back that statement up, both companies recently launched amazing flagship devices including the One X and the Galaxy S III.
Kantar Worldpanel also found that Android has a 50.1% market share in the UK, up 5.5 percentage points a year ago. While Samsung and HTC are popular, Sony and LG are trailing far behind those two firms. Sony has just a 10.4% share of the UK Android smartphone market and LG is responsible for less than 1% of Android device sales in the United Kingdom.
