Apple leads in Smartphone OEM market share rankings

Android is losing market share to iOS in the US smartphone market, according to the most recent ComScore results. In a three-month period ending in February, Android went from 53.7 percent of the market to 51.7 percent, a drop of 2 percent, while iOS gained 3.9 percent from the 35-percent share in the previous 3 months, hitting 38.9 percent.

BlackBerry also lost ground, moving from 7.3 percent to 5.4 percent. Windows Phone had a minor increase of 0.2 percent to settle at 3.2 percent, while Symbian remained static at 0.5 percent.

In terms of smartphones used, Apple increased its lead to 38.9 percent from 35-percent, while Samsung also had a positive 1-percent change to 21.3 percent of the market. HTC dropped from 11 percent to 9.3 percent, Motorola sank by 1.1 percent to 8.4 percent, and LG had a minor downward change from 7 percent to a 6.8-percent share. Both HTC and Samsung may find a change in fortune by the next report, thanks to the impending release of the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 in the region.

It is also reported that 133.7 million people in the US own smartphones, which itself is an 8-percent rise from the three-month period ending in November.
