Number of Android smartphone users in the United States from 2014 to 2021 (in millions)

Android smartphone users in the United States 2014-2021 The number of Android smartphone users in the United States increased to 120.5 million in 2018, and this figure is forecast to reach more than 130 million in 2021.

The rise of the Android robot

One reason for the growth of Android – developed by Google – is its open-source platform that allows mobile phone manufacturers to use and adapt the operating system for their own devices. Samsung, who run their own customized version of the Android operating system, is the leading manufacturer for Android smartphones in the United States with around a quarter of smartphone sales.

Is Android’s success affecting iOS?

With figures showing an increase in Android smartphone users in the United States, one could be forgiven for expecting the number of iPhone users to decrease as a result. However, iPhone users in the United States are also increasing year-on-year as Apple continues to lead the smartphone manufacturing market with a share of around 40 percent. Google Android and Apple iOS are together conquering all other competitors in the United States’ mobile operating systems market holding a joint share of 99 percent.
