With the number of first time smartphone buyers in Britain continuing to decline to from 21.8% (in 2014) to 15.1%, growth is coming from replacement sales, where both OS and brand loyalty play a big role.

While Android's share is declining the Britain, and across Europe, it is gaining market share in the US, where it increased to 62.4%, a 2.9 percentage point gain over the three months ending in April 2014.

Elsewhere, in urban China, Apple retained its leadership as a smartphone vendor, as its share reached 24.4%, up from 17.5% for the same period in 2014.

This new sales data is being published between the Google and Apple developer conferences, where a great deal of focus is expected to remain on continuing to deepen user engagement and enhancing user experience - such that it is becoming harder and harder for competitors to win customers away.
