The iPhone is just one device, whereas Android smartphones constitute a whole lineup of different devices. Regardless, the fact that Google chose to build an operating system instead of a single device has allowed Android to dominate the marketshare in mobile phones. According to a Nielson report, Android is still number one with a 27 percent marketshare in mobile phones, with the iPhone coming in second with a 17 percent marketshare. However, Android’s marketshare has flatlined from March – May of this year whereas the iPhone’s marketshare has surged from 10 percent to 17 percent.
