Santa put Apples under more than half of all the Christmas trees out there this year. According to mobile analytics firm Flurry, Apple accounted for 51 percent of new device activations worldwide during Christmas week.

Manufacturers coming in second and third place were Samsung with almost 18 percent of device activations and Microsoft (Nokia) with 5.3 percent.

To come to this conclusion, Flurry examined data from more than 600,000 apps, including popular ones such as Instagram and Facebook, to see what kind of device they were being installed on.

After the top three, Sony and LG took more than one percent share of new activations and newer companies Xiaomi, Huawei and HTC all had less than one percent share on Christmas Day.

Flurry reported, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the past nine months marked the first time consumers spent more time on mobile devices than watching TV in the U.S.
