Kantar data showed that Android gained more than 8 percent market share in the U.S. and China in the first quarter of 2014, with the same jump in Italy and smaller gains in France & Germany. Android did, however, lose market share in Japan, Australia, Britain and Spain … 

Comparisons with the iPhone, which lost market share in several key markets despite growing sales, suggest that must of the growth was in low-end and mid-range handsets, rather than at the top end of the market. Samsung saw a decline in its profits earlier this month due to a shift in demand toward lower-end smartphones, with HTC also focusing more on the lower end of the market in the search for profits.
