iPhone surpassed the Samsung Galaxy line-up in sales last quarter

Apple’s results last quarter have proven to shock more than few of us. Just recently we learned that the iPad actually gained global marketshare for the first time in a while last quarter, which is extremely difficult in a world full of $200 tablets. Now it seems that even the iPhone broke some records in sales last quarter when compared to its direct competition.

Two quarters ago, Samsung’s 38% of US smartphone market share had surpassed Apple’s 34%, something which proved to be a great achievement for Samsung, given how popular the iPhone is in the United States. Most of us assumed that this was due to iPhone customers waiting for the next iPhone to be announced, and that was quite accurate. CIRP (Consumer Intelligence Research Partners) has just published its official numbers for last quarter, and Apple’s market share shows a tremendous growth to over 48% of the US smartphone market, and Samsung trails behind dropping to 31%, even with the Galaxy Note 3 launch in the US.

It’s most probable that these numbers will remain the same for another quarter as the iPhone’s launch date continues to be newer than the previous Galaxy S 4’s launch in the US, but we do know this will change dramatically once the Galaxy S 5 gets announced as well.
