Apple vs Android

It might feel like everyone and their aunt has an iPhone, but how does the share of smartphones actually break down?

Market analysis firm ComScore has released a new report on the state of smartphones in the USA last quarter.

According to the data, 43.6% of all smartphone subscribers in the country are using an Apple device.

That’s actually down on the previous quarter, but only by 0.5% – not exactly an earth-shattering loss.

Samsung held second place with a 27.6% share, although it also saw a 0.5% change down on last quarter.

The shares seriously start to trickle off after Samsung however, with LG taking third place at 9.4%.

That represents a 1.1% growth for the South Korean tech giant – that’s the only growth in the top five.

Motorola came in fourth with 4.8%, followed closely by HTC at 3.3%.

But while Apple might appear to dominate the US smartphone market, Android is still the leading mobile operating system.

Google’s platform holds an impressive 52.3% – an increase of 0.7% on last quarter.

Unsurprisingly, Apple takes second place, falling 0.5% quarter-on-quarter to 43.6%.

Microsoft is third, albeit with a lowly 2.9%, followed by BlackBerry, which touts an even paltrier 1.2%.

However, the launch of Windows 10 will likely give that figure a boost in the coming months.

Do any of these figures surprise you? Let us know in the comments.
