In the third quarter of 2015, Android smartphones accounted for 84.7 per cent of worldwide smartphone sales and were trending upward.
Second, way below this figure, was Apple's iPhone with 13.1 per cent marketshare globally and trending downwards.
Microsoft was barely a blip on the radar with 1.7 per cent, with sales also showing a downward trend worldwide.
The data available at Statista has some interesting aspects; if one goes back to the first quarter of 2009, Symbian was the dominant force, with 48.8 per cent of the market, while both Apple and Microsoft held a little more than 10 per cent at the time.
According to the Statista figures, Apple's sales have averaged out evenly from 2009, with the high point being a rise to nearly 24 per cent in the fourth quarter of 2011.
