Counterpoint Research has now released a report providing insight into global 5G Android smartphone sales in February. Samsung utterly dominates with five entries in the top ten, thanks to stellar Galaxy A52s, Galaxy S22 Ultra, and Galaxy S21 FE sales.

Year after year, Samsung retains its crown as the biggest smartphone company in the world thanks to a solid mix of outstanding budget, mid-range, and flagship models. That carries over to a smaller scale as well, with a report showing how much the South Korean company dominates the Android market on a month-to-month basis.

As revealed by Counterpoint, Samsung was, by far, the most dominant Android 5G smartphone maker in February, with five entries in the top ten best-selling charts for the month. The Galaxy A52s leads, of course. Phones in that line have generally always been the best-selling Android devices going back to the A50

The Galaxy S22 Ultra comes in at a close second, however—impressive considering its price tag. The flagship phone accounted for 2.87% of all Android 5G smartphone sales in February. On a side note, the S22 Ultra also appears to be the best-selling device in the S22 series lineup, with Counterpoint Research claiming it constitutes two-thirds of S22 series sales. The Galaxy S21 FE follows in third place, and the Galaxy A32 5G in fourth.

Android 5G smartphone sales accounted for 67% of total 5G smartphone sales. That indicates that the eight iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 series models were responsible for the 33% share of the market left.
