Despite Android growth leveling off in the U.S., it’s still the number one mobile OS worldwide. Handset Detection recently analyzed 35 million Android devices in seven countries across four different categories: Top models, top screen sizes, number of unique devices, and what percentage of phones compared to tablets.
Starting in the U.S., here are the top 10 models:
Handset Detection doesn’t specify what “Android Generic” is, though it appears in the ‘top models’ for other countries as well. The most popular screen size in the U.S. is 1280 x 720, followed by 960 x 540 and 480 x 320. In total, there are 1,360 unique devices. Smartphones are significantly more popular than tablets, making up almost 86 percent of all Android devices.

That awkward moment when you realize your whole sub-continent doesn’t exist. Sent from Argentina, South America.
Africa isn’t on there either…nor is Asia. I would be interested in seeing a true representation world wide. I doubt we would get a lot of info from certain Asian countries but I don’t see why any South American or African nations were mentioned.
India is part of Asia
True…but not typically a country you may think of when you think Asia…at least I don’t. Either way I would love to see more data from more countries.
Weird, where is Brazil? According to Samsung, Brazil is the 5th largest market of this particular handset company.
Imagine low prices in Brazil! We would be first or second. Here, everything is expensive.
And the biggest country and the country with most people aren’t there either :D
where is china ???
Android Generic for India could mean Micromax, Karbon and many other local brands.
why is china not included
Where the heck is Canada
Everyone knows Canada doesn’t really exist. It’s just a myth Americans use to scare their children.
so the chinadroid segment was left off due of laziness? or because it would throw all the scaling off?
A time will come in the very near future that no one will be using a desktop computer and everyone will be accessing the net thru a mobile device.
