Manufacturer shares in Europe

Statistics covering the market shares by operating system tend to show Android in a commanding position, simply due to the sheer number of manufacturers creating android devices. At the European level, the market share held by Apple , and the largest two manufacturers of Android based devices, are far more even. During the fourth quarter of 2018, 25 percent of devices shipped in Europe were Samsung devices, 26 percent were Apple devices, and 23 percent were Huawei devices. Shipments of Huawei devices are generally expected to reduce following recent restrictions on the relationship between themselves and Google.
