HTC is King of Android smartphones in the UK, Samsung rules in France, according to recent report

ComScore has just released some data in regards to the Android smartphone market in top 5 European Union countries. According to the latest numbers, the king of the Android smartphone market in the EU5 and the UK is HTC.

Out of the 6.3 million people in the UK with Android smartphones, 51% had a phone by the Taiwanese phone manufacturer HTC. Samsung came in second with 21.6%, and Sony Ericsson came in third with 14.2%.

We have to give some props to Samsung and their dominance in France. It looks like the French love their Galaxy S phones, because over 42% of Android users in France rock Samsung phones.

Overall in the EU5, HTC is also the market share leader among Android smartphones with over 34.6% of Android users rocking HTC phones. Samsung came in close second with 31.7% of market share within the EU5 countries.

Unfortunately, things don’t look so good for Motorola and LG in Europe. Motorola and LG pretty much trail the top 3 in every EU5 nation with numbers in the single digits.

Congrats to HTC and Samsung. You guys are doing a great job! Keep up the good work.
