Aspirational phones like the Galaxy S3 may generate a lot of news, but what phones do the majority of folks in the U.S. actually use?
A company called Handset Detection – which monitors device use and sells the data to app developers – has been tracking the phone models people use across the globe. With software installed on over 35 million devices, the company claims it can say with authority which devices are most popular in the U.S.
According to the company, here are the most popular Android devices in the U.S. today:
10 . Google Nexus 7 :
Well, I suppose it’s not surprising that Google’s best-selling tablet, which is the second most popular Android tablet in the world, is the 10th most popular Android device in the U.S. According to Handset Detection, it makes up 1.5% of all devices running Android.
9. Motorola Droid X
Even at three years old(!), the Motorola Droid X has remained relatively popular. At its release, it was considered one of the best competitors against the iPhone 4. It only runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but is easily rootable. It’s one of only two Motorola devices that made it into the top 10.
8. Samsung Galaxy Note 2
The Galaxy Note 2 might be what you’d think of as a niche product, given its large girth, but it is a wildly popular device. Announced less than a year ago, it crossed the 5 million mark two months after its release. It remains incredibly popular.
7. HTC Evo 4G
A fan favorite, the HTC Evo 4G was first announced in 2010, which is the Pleistocene era in the smartphone era. Back then, it featured the largest screen on the block – 4.3 inches, to be exact. It remains popular to this day.
6. Unknown Android Device
Because of the insane modding community in the U.S., about 1,360 different Android device don’t identify as any particular device. That’s a lot of custom ROMs.
