Samsung (SSNLF.PK) and its estimated ~50M smartphone sales accounted for 45% of the Android phone market in Q2, claims Horace Dediu. Fast-growing Chinese OEMs Huawei and ZTE (ZTCOY.PK) had a 16% share between them. Struggling Sony (SNE), Motorola, HTC (previous), and LG saw their combined share fall to 26%. Motorola can rely on Google's (GOOG) checkbook to handle its R&D and marketing needs, but the others are in a tougher spot.
