    So the graph is really iOS vs. Android.

    A break down of Android based devices shipped by manufacturer would be interesting.
    62.15% of South Africans voted in favour of the Nkandla compound and e-tolls.

    We choose the thieves and the liars who will govern
    As they don their disguises and prey on the prizes we bought them
    And we'll say that we didn't know
    We'll be know as the wicked, the lazy, the crazy, the people that choose to be blind

    Why is this surprising? Samsung are selling a huge amount of phones

    I personally think that comparing iOS vs Android has very little relevance.

    A better comparison is to compare the flagship phones from each manufacturer. Lets be honest, the iPhone is not competing with the bottom end android phones, so including them in the comparison is just miss-leading in the debate over iPhone or another equivalent phone.

    Android is also on more phones than IOS, never get the reason for these surveys when Apple has the iphone and Android have ALL the others.
    they comparing a single phone (iphone) to a multitude of big and small priced android models.

    The graph hardly says anything useful whatsoever except to highlight one big number against one small number:

    Would be nice to see a graph of the sales of past and present flag ship phones from all the manufacturers in comparison to all the iPhones over a few years.

    That would be a pointless exercise IMO. Like compiling a graph of Dell, HP, Lenovo and Sony for devices running Windows - who is really interested in what components the hardware manufacturer ships when the OS is really what's competing?

    Agreed that it should actually be iOS vs. Android, in which case there might be a bigger increase for iOS owing to the iPads and Macs running it.

    But when you buy a smartphone you are buying into an ecosystem. Once you've got Android setup (eg. linked to your Google account) switching will be a hard choice.

    Contacts, calendar, images, browser history, installed apps and phone settings are all synched on Android. Switching phones is as simple as typing in your username and password and Android starts installing your apps, adding everything and applying all the settings.

    Also any apps bought are linked to your account.

    I don't know what the situation is with iOS but switching from Android IMHO isn't trivial.

    The graph would be correct if you are comparing the iphone which is hardware to android which is software, It should probably read IOS vs Android.
    Always be wary of the Software Engineer who carries a screwdriver.

    What would be interesting if anyone can find it for me is a breakdown of Android sales by manufacturer. In particular Samsung's growth just has to be seen to be believed. It's quite astonishing.
