Samsung is holding onto a whopping 47.2-percent share of all web traffic originating from Android devices in North America.
A new study from mobile marketing company Chitika looked at Android-based web traffic in the U.S. and Canada and found the Korean phone giant thoroughly trouncing all other Android OEMs. HTC was the next closest with 9.7 percent, followed by Motorola with 9.5 percent, Amazon with 8.8 percent and LG with 8.3 percent.
Somewhat surprisingly, Google only scored 2.5 percent of the web traffic originating from its own operating system, a share equal to that of ZTE.
Samsung’s impressive lead stands to reason, at least in terms of Android smartphone sales worldwide. As Strategy Analytics found, of the $5.3 billion in global profits from Android smartphone sales reported during the first quarter of this year, Samsung pulled in $5.1 billion, or 95 percent.
Chitika based its findings on approximately 300 million ad impressions seen within its network between June 17 and June 23. Chitika counts around 100,000 users in its network.
