Apple iPhone remains on top in the U.S. says latest comScore data

The more interesting dynamic in the industry took place on the Android side of the field where Samsung lost 1.1 percentage points from the November tally. That gave Samsung 28.6% of the stateside market during December, January and February. Sammy might have turned things around with the just released Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge. Pre-orders were said to have doubled from the reservations garnered by the Samsung Galaxy S5. LG picked up much of the market share lost by Samsung. From 7.6% of the market for the three months ended in November, LG had an 8.3% slice of the pie for the three months ended in February. The manufacturer will unveil its new LG G4 flagship on April 28th.
As far as operating system share is concerned, Android picked up .2 percentage points to control 52.8% of the U.S. market for the three months ended in February. Apple's iOS slipped to 41.7% from 41.8% during the same time frame. Windows Phone tacked on .1pp to 3.5% from 3.4% while BlackBerry came away with a 1.8% share. That is off .2 percentage points from the 2% share it owned during the three months that ended in November.
Facebook continued to have the largest reach among smartphone apps, being available on 71.2% of U.S. smartphones. YouTube (56.4%), Google Play (51.4%), Facebook Messenger (51.2%) and Google Maps (44.1%) rounded out the top five. Other notable names include Instagram, which had a 35% reach, Twitter (22.7%) and Snapchat (19.2%).
Thanks for the tip!

Then the android side will be like "let the iSheep trolling begin" then: "it's fun to read all the hate comments on Android every single day, and nod my head at how out of touch with reality the iSheeps really are." It's the same for both sides, so don't be proud.

Google+ kinda forces itself if you use most of Google Services, snapchat does not and only gets installed when someone really wants it...

Ignoring it while being forced to sign into it to use another service like YouTube OR not signing into service u don't need are two different things. But I'm talking to a Samsung fan - I bet you're used to ignoring all kinds of garbage on your phone, bloatware, carrier restrictions, app permissions that you cannot limit, that Verizon logo on the back of your phone, lack of timely updates. Yeah you keep "ignoring it", while I use a device where I don't have to.

You mean that Google has now consolidated all their services to a single login. Isnt Live login used the say way? Xbox Live, Bing, Windows Insiders program, etc? And you have the option to not post YT comments to Google+. Dont know about uploading videos and whatnot. G+ was forced on Play Store users who wanted to rate apps. Its not really forced on all things Goolge tho.

LG makes some great devices, but until they can make a killer tablet, as well as a game changer of a phone, they won't take over Samsung or Apple.

You do realize more and more people are using Phablets as their tablet, right. Considering over 1.2 billion smart phones shipped last year (2014). This year is shooting for 1.3 billion smart phones. Not to mention more tablets are being sold as well. Also Q1 2015 PC's and notebook shipments lost 5%. Tablet sales are a little less then a quarter of the smartphone sales. Smartphone sales will make no difference to tablet sales. Besides its not like there isn't any other Android tablets out there in the world. Also remember Android currently has 66% of the tablet market.
