Android hits a new high in U.S. market share during June according to comScore
Samsung remains on top with a 25.6% market share of the U.S. smartphone market. Back in March, that number was at 26%. This data was counted before the release of the red hot Samsung Galaxy S III, so you know those figures have a good shot at moving higher in the next survey. LG was in second despite losing .5% of its market share to finish June with an 18.8% share and Apple picked up some ground on the Korean manufacturer by rising 1.4% to 15.4%. Motorola's 11.7% figure represented a 1.1% decline from the previous report while HTC added .4% to 6.4%.
The scores actually represent an average of the three months ended in June versus the three months ended in March in an attempt to smooth out the data so that one freak month doesn't skew the numbers.
As for how we use our smartphones, three quarters of us text other smartphone owners which is the number one use based on the survey. The biggest jump for the three month period was listening to music which rose 2.3% to 27.6%, still last on the list. At 51.4% vs. 50.2%, more U.S. smartphone owners download apps than use the browser on their phone.
