The Apple iPhone accounted for more than half of North American smartphone web traffic last month
Samsung was next, with users of its branded handsets accounting for 26.4% of smartphone web traffic in North America from July 1st through the 28th. That was up from the 25.2% slice of the pie that the manufacturer owned back in February. While Apple still has a substantial lead over its rival, it has been cut a bit from 27.3 percentage points to 25.9 percentage points.
BlackBerry saw its 1% share of North American smartphone web traffic in February, cut in half for July. The next worst performance came from HTC. The latter's phones made up 3% of the smartphone web traffic in July, down from 3.4% in February, Chitika blamed problems that both manufacturers have had "gaining traction" with their latest flagship handsets. As we told you this morning, HTC saw its revenues decline sharply in July, led by slowing sales of its flagship model.
LG's new flagship, the LG G3, is said to be responsible for the gain in LG's share of North American smartphone web traffic from 4.6% in February to 4.8% last month. That was enough to put the manufacturer in third place, behind Samsung, but ahead of Motorola.
