Although LG didn't really make much of a dent in Samsung's massive marketshare, it's worth noting they were the breakout surprise hit of the Android world in 2014. With both the LG G3 and the LG-made Nexus 5, the company was able to grow their marketshare from 8.7% of Android smartphone traffic in North America to 10.4% in the third quarter this year, states Chitika. Based upon the results, it appears that most of this traffic marketshare was pulled away from Motorola and HTC. Samsung's marketshare still rose from 56.4% in the second quarter to 57.4% in Q3. Of course, it's possible that this marketshare would have risen at a faster rate had LG not done such a great job this year. It will be interesting to see which Android OEM will have the most momentum in 2015. Motorola now has several hot products coming and could be the Dark Horse in the race. What do you think?
