Android smartphone

Since it hit the market back in October 22, 2008, when the first Android smartphone – HTC Dream – went on sale, Google’s mobile operating system has become the most widely used platform when it comes to smart devices. Right now, the smartphone market is dominated by the Android phones. According to the International Data Corporation (IDC) study, in the third quarter of 2016 were shipped world-wide 363.2 milion such mobile devices, that’s a 5.2% growth compared to the second quarter of the same year, quarter when there were delivered 345.5 million units. In fact, the smartphone nowadays is considered the main go-to gadget (hub) for accessing pretty much everything, including entertainment content, even though market analysts have confirmed a slight decline in sales globally in the fourth quarter of 2016. Only 325 million units were sold during this time, that is 80.7% share of the whole smartphone market. Overall Android dominated the smartphone market, while Samsung Electronics, who is the number one contributor (mobile manufacturer) remained in the top spot, while other manufacturers like LG Electronics, Sony Mobile, HTC Corporation or Chinese mobile makers such as Xiaomi, Huawei, OnePlus are trying to catch-up with the South Korean brand.

Through the use of an Android smartphone people have instant access to their emails, to social media platforms, breaking news, access online to movies / tv shows (on platforms such as Netflix, Hulu, etc), access to listen on-the-go music (Play Music, Apple Music, Spotify, etc) and so much more. But the smartphone also has other uses. For instance, it can become a remote control for your TV when you’re at home, the screen surface of a smartphone can be used as a trackpad (mouse touch pad) for other devices, used as a flash light at night, or just used as a gateway to play your favorite games online in a mobile format.
