In the United States, in the three months to January 2017, Android accounted for 56.4% of smartphone sales in the country, 1.8 points lower than the year before. However, Google’s system is still number one, in front of that of Apple which holds only 42% of market share in the world. Note also that the American smartphone market is dominated by three manufacturers. Apple and Samsung share 70% of the market share, far behind them, LG which has 11.1% of sales.
