Verizon and Android are on Top Again in Q2 2013

Verizon and Android are on Top Again in Q2 2013

Verizon and Android are still the top names in smartphone market. Both have far more shares than other rivals. According to a study report published by USA’s research firm Kantar Worldpanel ComTech , Android alone holds 51.5% sales share of the smartphone market in Q2 2013. iOS is trailing behind with 42.5% sales share. Yet iOS shares have been increased 3.3% from previous year, but not enough to beat Android's. Windows increased its share by 1.1% and now holds 4% smartphone sales share. Other brands hold a very nominal percentage.

Talking about mobile operators, Verizon is still on top. In fact it is the only brand which gains 1.9% more subscriber shares than previous year. Verizon again leads by 36.9% share. AT&T trails behind with 26.5% share, Sprint with 13.8% and T-Mobile comes 4th with 10%.

“Verizon continues to lead in this second quarter of 2013, driven by its ability to provide a range of highly demanded brands and models, which has ultimately led to the carrier capturing the most sales from all three top OS brands,” said Dominic Sunnebo, global consumer insight director at Kantar Worldpanel ComTech.
