Apple Tops Samsung but Android Beats iOS in Latest comScore Survey

Apple’s mantle as top smartphone OEM in the U.S. continued for at least three more months according to a recent report from comScore. The company’s latest survey reveals that while both Apple and Samsung gained market share, the Cupertino-based company was able to increase its lead over the South Korean company in the three months ending in April 2013. HTC, Motorola and LG filled out the rest of the top five companies, but all lost market share since the previous report.


When it comes to mobile platforms, though, Android still has the largest market share with a 52 percent grip of the market. Apple is sitting in second place with iOS holding 39.2 percent of the market. However, Apple edged up almost one and a half percentage points since last quarter, while Android lost 0.3 percentage points. Meanwhile, BlackBerry, Microsoft and Symbian filled out the top five, sharing less than 10 percent of the market among the three of them.

These numbers are pretty much the same trends we saw earlier this month with comScore’s last batch of data, suggesting that Apple’s steady growth has continued while Android’s dominance has started to slow down and even decrease slightly.
