Samsung gains on Apple in U.S. smartphone market share

According to the latest data from comScore, which regularly surveys over 30,000 mobile subscribers in the U.S., Samsung was able to increase its market share in the country from 21.7 to 23.7 percent in the last quarter, at the expense of negative growth of basically every other manufacturer that makes Android phones.

Apple still leads with a 39.9 percent share, but Samsung is slowly inching closer as its growth was higher than what Apple was able to achieve in the same period (though as the next iPhone launches, we might see that change). As for Android, well, it continued to dominate but neither lost nor gained any share, due to Apple’s gains in the hardware space.


With Samsung’s Galaxy Note III almost at the arrival gates, Samsung’s share should see a comfortable increase in the next few months, but for now the Korean manufacturer will have to play second fiddle to Apple.
