Android tops the rest with 52.1% share in the US market, followed by iOS
The newest comScore report has been out and it shows the smartphone trends in the US for the three months ending February 2014. And just like we expected, Apple has topped every other competitor and it remains to be the most favorite of all. It is a golbal market leader and holds the maximum market share at 41.3%. And then Samsung's second place was quite inevitable and it holds the second best 27% share in the United States.
LG on the other hand is not doing bad at all and has been facing a steady growth rate and its owning the 6.8% of the US market is quite an achievement on their part. Motorola was recently acquired by Lenovo and holds the fourth spot and with its 6.3% share in the market, it doesnt seem to be so far away from LG. Surprisingly enough, HTC's share in the market has decreased and it has only managed to capture 5.4% share in the market. Those of you who were expecting the company to do better with its new HTC One should not be entirely disappointed because these results dont include the sales of the new One since it was launched in March.
Coming to the operating systems, the most popular one seems to be the Android for obvious reasons and has gained 52.1% and this is followed by Apple's iOS with 41.3%. With BlackBerry going down the lane, Windows Phone seems to have taken its place with 3.4% of the US market.
