In 2017 the share of smartphones running Android on Board reached 85%, while the share of iOS fell to 15%. This is stated in a new report by research company IDC.
Analysts published a new report on the state of the smartphone market in the first quarter of 2017. At the end of the reporting period, the share of iPhone was 14.7% down from 18.2% in the fourth quarter of last year. Three months earlier, there has been a sharp surge shipped in the retail network of iOS devices — the reason was the release of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. It is obvious that this year will be something similar.
The share of smartphones running Windows Phone in the first quarter of the year was 0.1%. Decreases were seen in the last 12 months — in the first three months of 2016 year, Windows Phone accounted for 0.8%, which also can not be called anything meaningful.
The column “other” gathered to 0.1% mobile platforms. There is nothing surprising, because the rest of the operating system is almost completely extinct.
If we consider the placement on the market, in terms of brands, in the first place is held by Samsung with a share of 23.3%, the second place is Apple (14.7 per cent). In third place with a score of 10% Huawei, behind her settled the OPPO (7.5%) and Vivo (5.5 percent).
Average price of a smartphone in the reporting period amounted to $220. According to analysts, by 2021, this figure will drop to $198.
