Smartphones that run on the Android Operating System are the most popular on the market with Android OS accounting for almost 85 percent of the market share of smartphone sales to end users in 2016. Android was founded in October 2013 by Andy Rubin and backed by Google, along with other major hardware and software companies such as Intel and Samsung, which formed the Open Handset Alliance. In October 2008, HTC released the HTC Dream, which was the first smartphone to use the Android Operating System. Although the adoption of Android was slow at first, it started to gain widespread popularity in 2010 and became the best-selling smartphone platform by the end of the year.

Android supports the execution of native applications, such as Google’s Maps, Calender, and Gmail, as well as third-party apps available via Google Play, which launched in October 2008 as Android Market. As of March 2017 the Google Play store had around 2.8 million Android apps published, with 65 billion apps downloaded worldwide as of May 2016.
