Apple leads Samsung in US smartphone market share

Market research firm comScore on Tuesday released results of its latest research into smartphone market share in the United States. The results showed that Apple is leading and growing faster than its competition, including Samsung.

During the three months ending April 2013, Apple held 39.2% of the U.S. market, up 1.4 points from the 37.8% it held in January 2013. For April, Samsung has 22.0% market share, up only 0.6 points from the 21.4% it held in January.

HTC (8.9%), Motorola (8.3%) and LG (6.7%) round out the top five. All three were down slightly in the April report.

Android leads the platform race for the April report with 52.0% of the U.S. share, but that’s down -0.3 points from the 52.3% it held in January.

Apple’s iOS, on the other hand, is up 1.4 points to 39.2% in the April report. iOS had 37.8% in the January report.

BlackBerry (5.1%), Microsoft (3.0%) and Symbian (0.5%) round out the top five. None of these companies grew market share.

    Hey, the 4th paragraph from the bottom says “HTC, Moto, and LG round out the top 5″ Then the last paragraph says “Blackberry, MS, and Symbian round out the top 5″ That’s too crowded for a top 5. The interesting point, though, is that MS trails Blackberry!! And they bet big on that “metro” UI for their tablets. No matter how you count, trailing Blackberry sucks!

      HTC, Motorola and LG are #3-5 in hardware market share. Blackberry, MS and Symbian are #3-5 in OS market share.
