Apple and Samsung dominated 71% of the US smartphone market in 2015
It shall be interesting to see whether the upcoming LG G5, a rather interesting smartphone by the looks of it, will eat into Apple and Samsung's market shares, despite the two's traditionally strong competition. Apple is going to introduce significant changes with the iPhone 7 & 7 Plus in the second half of 2016, and is also rumored to unveil an aggressively priced iPhone with up-to-date hardware and features in March. The three offerings are sure to attract potential upgraders and Android switchers, perhaps more so than the Samsung Galaxy S7, which is shaping up as an incremental upgrade over its technologically impressive predecessor.
the smartphone market is a difficult place to do business in.
To conclude the overview, here is some random interesting trivia from Parks Associates for mobile enthusiasts. You sure love watching videos, don't you?
- More than 70% of smartphone users in America now watch short streaming video clips, and more than 40% watch long streaming videos
- Almost 40% of smartphone users use the voice recognition function; among iPhone users, more than half have used Siri.
- 36% of users use Wi-Fi calling
- 35% stream music from the phone to speakers
- 26% use a payment app for purchases at a retail location
- 24% stream video from the phone to a second screen (e.g., TV, PC, etc.)
