Android is still a global leading smartphone OS platform in terms of shipments. However, the OS’ market share dropped to 69.2% in Q4 2012, despite of strong shipments of Android devices. Undoubtedly, Samsung is the biggest Android vendor, controlling almost half of the OS market share. Besides, the company is also accounting for 29% of the global smartphone market share. Just a day before, an analytics and marketing tools provider–Localytics–released a very interesting list of top 10 Android devices by users throughout January 2013.

Top 10 Android Devices In Use

Interestingly, Samsung’s Galaxy lineups dominated over all other Android devices in terms of usages during January 2013. Galaxy S 3 maintained its supremacy during the last month, accounting for 9.2% of share in terms of use. More importantly, out of top 10 Android devices, eight devices were from Samsung. Only two devices–Amazon’s Kindle Fire and Motorola’s Droid Razr–succeeded to make their presence in the list.

In terms of usages, Samsung’s other flagships including Galaxy S 2, Galaxy Ace and Galaxy Note are still performing well. Samsung Galaxy SII was at second position in usages with 8.2% share, followed by Galaxy Ace and Note with 3.0% and 2.6% respectively. Furthermore, Galaxy Note’s next iteration is quite popular among users. The stats from the marketing tool provider reveals that 2.0% of Android users used Galaxy Note 2 during January 2013.

Samsung Galaxy S III

Other Samsung’s flagship models such as Galaxy Y, Galaxy Tab 2.7.0 and Epic 4G were at the sixth, eight and tenth positions respectively in usages during January this year. It’s pretty much clear form the above chart that Amazon’s Kindle Fire is more popular than Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 2.7.0 among Android users. Kindle Fire accounted for 1.9% of Android share in use during January this year, followed by Galaxy Tab 2.7.0 with 1.4% share.

If we aggregate Samsung’s top eight devices share (listed in the above image) all together, then we will get that the company’s eight flagship models accounted for 29.6% of all Android devices shares in terms of usages during January this year.

Breaking out to some facts, Google’s Nexus 7 is still in the list of top 10 Android devices during January 2013. In addition to this,  not even a single device from Android’s second largest vendor’s (HTC’s) is in the list of top Android devices. In fact during January, 47% of Android devices in use were manufactured by Samsung. The South Korean company also accounted for 47% share (Android device in use) in December 2012, down from 48% in November last year.

  1. Samsung Galaxy S III is among the most successful handsets by Samsung powered by Android. I am astonished to see the position of Google owned Motorola’s handset DROID RAZR. Don’t you think Google is neglecting it’s own child ?
