LG is the fastest growing Android manufacturer in the U.S. states report
posted by Alan F. / Mar 31, 2014, 9:37 AM
Among the myriad Android manufacturers, none is adding to its share of the U.S.market any greater than LG. The Korean manufacturer is now the third largest smartphone producer in the U.S. with 8% of the stateside market. LG now trails only Apple and Samsung in U.S. smartphone market share.
Unlike past years, when LG depended on its low to mid-range models, it is the high-end LG G2 that is now leading the way. According to Kantar, the LG G2 tops the Apple iPhone 5s and Samsung Galaxy Note 3 in customer recommendation scores with a figure of 9.2 out of 10. The flagship iPhone model scored a 9.1, and the latest iteration of Samsung's phablet received a 9.0 score.
The rumored (but unannounced) LG G3 is expected to be a monster release for LG later this year. The phone is rumored to offer a 5.5 inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 and is also tipped to be waterproof and dustproof. If LG delivers the goods with its next flagship model, it might be able to continue adding to its U.S. market share.

Too bad they don't make any profits out of their phones. Been bleeding money. Let's see how they can sustain.

I don't doubt LG G2 is a solid phone, but I have yet to see even one in the wild as of yet....

that stinks for you, I've got one and got 4 of them for the rest of my family and that missing bezel makes the phone looks so high end. Also, the price is between $150-200 cheaper than its competitors

Competition is always good. Let see what One M8, Xperia Z2 and the next Motorola flagship can do against iPhone and Galaxy S/Note. I think that LG and the others are failing in low-mid. They had to see the Moto G as a model to pursue.

I used to back away from LG. But ever since the dropped the G Pro, Nexus 4, G2, Nexus 5, G Flex and G Pro 2, LG has been on a roll. All They need to do now is stay on top of updating their handsets and they'll also be able to be the #3 OEM on the world wide stage as well.
