At least that appears to be. Now Samsung owns nearly 95% of Android device market and making more revenue than Google, it is definitely powerful. The second leader in Android devices is LG, which makes about 2.5% of market share and rest merely 2.7%. I think the first one to jump the ship and got pulled into OHA mantra, HTC, is the biggest loser because its share is so dismal there. http://venturebeat.com/2013/05/15/samsung-owns-android-captures-95-of-global-android-smartphone-profits/ Once Microsoft makes every Android device maker to signup with them for patents, I think Microsoft could top Samsung on profits with respect to Android device sales, even though it doesn’t make any devices using Android OS.
