Google chairman Eric Schmidt is not mincing words when it comes to the smartphone war with Apple.

Speaking with Bloomberg reporters, Schmidt said, "This is a huge platform change; this is of the scale of 20 years ago -- Microsoft versus Apple ... We’re winning that war pretty clearly now."

He believes Android is winning because of its incredible global market share. Gartner says Android had 75% of the market, and iPhone has just 15%.

And yes, based on market share, Android is winning.

However, there's still this sense that Android isn't winning overall.

So, there's something amiss with Android's market share lead. Before Google declares victory, it might want to solve some of these problems.
