Android industry made $5.3 billion profit in the first quarter of

by Samsung comes in at $5.1 billion for the same period. The exact
figure quoted is 94.7 percent profit share, and that’s not
including tablets either.
According to Strategy Analytics’ chart, in a (very) distant second
place is LG, with 2.5 percent profit share, while all the other
Android phone manufacturers — think about it, that’s everyone
from Sony and HTC to Huawei, Acer and ZTE — are lumped into an
Others category, which totals 2.7 percent.
