The guys behind popular benchmark app AnTuTu has released a very revealing report for the state of smartphones in the first half of 2015. This report was compiled from all the data that has passed through their benchmark app since the beginning of this year, and there are many interesting revelations therein.

The report states that 2.04% of all Android smartphones are fake – this is quite a huge number, and Samsung leads the pack as the most cloned device with 37.30% said to be all Samsung clones. These are other revelations from the report:

Most Cloned Devices:

  1. Samsung – 37.30%
  2. Xiaomi – 30.96%
  3. Huawei – 3.79%
  4. HTC – 2.88%

Most Cloned Phone models:

  1. Xiaomi Mi Note – 31.82%
  2. Xiaomi Redmi Note – 12%
  3. Xiaomi Mi3 – 9.39%
  4. Samsung Galaxy Note 3 – 8.82%
  5. Samsung Galaxy Note 4 – 7.01%

The report also indicates there’s a declined of cloned phones compared to previous years, and mind you this report was collated from about 11.8 million Android phones that was tested on the benchmark app for this half of the year. We can say its not a full representation of the state of Android phones but it can go a long way in giving us information about the ecosystem.

  1. There’s no such language as Chinese, it’s probably in Mandarin.

    One of the reasons for the decline in cloned phones – apart from the fact that they run with a version of the Play Store – is that you can get decent legitimate Android phones, even if they’re not a Xiaomi or Samsung.

    Or people have switched to iPhones 😀
