While Google’s (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android ate up the smartphone market last quarter with more than 72 percent of the global market share, Jim Cramer would still pick Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) over the search giant.

Despite Google’s operating system possessing a bigger share of the smartphone market, Cramer says the search company makes less money off Android devices than Apple makes off its iOS devices.
