Apple is #1 in US smartphone market share

According to ComScore’s latest research which took some metrics from the US smartphone market share, Apple seems to have taken up the major chunk of this smartphone market in the US. On the other hand, Android remains the top OS of the market. According to the calculations of ComScore, the 169 million mobile phone users in the country own a smartphone. This equals to almost 70% of the entire population of mobile phone users. And out of these users, Apple has a claim on 41.9% of them. Samsung falls second with 27.8% and then LG with 6.5%, Motorola with 6.3%, and HTC with 5.1%.

The numbers displayed here are quite surprising for many of us because Samsung and Apple seem to have a huge difference in their results. But it is generally understood that Apple is the king of the smartphone hardware in the US followed by Samsung which is counting on the Android competition, with over 22% more handsets sold than any other Android manufacturer.

The numbers have a totally different story for the OS market in the country. In this case, Android takes the lead with 52.1% of the smartphone OS market share while Apple commands with 41.9%. Microsoft, BlackBerry, and Symbian account for only 3.4%, 2.3%, and 0.1%, respectively.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
