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%).
