Which Android Brand Won Out in 2022?

Android phones are already looking to 2023, with a lot of exciting new releases in store. In spite of the fact that this is the case, 2022 has brought a number of excellent phones to the table, and as the year draws to a close we felt it was time to take a look back and see which brands saw the most success. The folks at Android Central recently conducted a poll to see which Android brands their readers feel most loyal too, and the answers might surprise you.

Samsung has been making a lot of waves as of late by releasing phones that cater to practically every section of the market. The foldable phones that it added to its line up went over particularly well, but with all of that having been said and now out of the way it is important to note that this was not enough to help Samsung reach the top spot. Instead, Google itself reached first place in terms of the most beloved Android phone brand.

42.64% of people who responded to this poll said that Google made the biggest splash, followed by Samsung which got 28.16% of the vote. Google’s launch of the Pixel Tablet created the first Android tablet that actually generated some buzz and lived up to expectations, and the incorporation of flagship features into the budget Pixel 6a smartphone also helped to move the needle with all things having been considered and taken into account.

A surprise entry at number 3 is nothing! 13.27% of respondents said that no particular Android phone brand impressed them this year, although the numbers might be lower than might have been the case otherwise due to votes from iPhone fans.

Motorola makes an entry at number 4 with 3.87% of the vote, followed by Xiaomi with 3.29%. Motorola’s Razr 2022 indicated a comeback for the once dominant company and its entry into a brave new market. Meanwhile, Xiaomi’s 200 megapixel camera in its flagship smartphone has also been turning a few heads which explains why it got a decent chunk of the vote despite stiff competition from other brands.
