Apple Increases Lead Over Samsung In the U.S.
Apple increases lead over Samsung in the U.S., according to the latest numbers from comScore, referring to the quarter ending March 2013. We’ve recently seen a visualization of Apple and Samsung growth over time but as far as these two main competitors are concerned, in America, the iPhone-maker is still holding its number-one spot.
Apple grew from 36.3% last December to 39% at the end of March 2013, as far as the share of total smartphone subscribers is concerned. Samsung has also seen a growth, slight though, from 21% to 21.7%, meaning Apple has managed to distance itself compared to its main competitor for American dominance.
The third, fourth, and fifth spots are unchanged, with HTC, Motorola, and LG all losing market share points.
Google say a slight decline in its Android share from 53.4% to 52% while Apple grew its iOS shared from 36.3% to 39%. BlackBerry continues to lose while Microsoft and Symbian are basically stagnating.
