According to the latest report from comScore, Apple has once again leaped over Samsung as the top smartphone manufacturer in the U.S. While Apple’s share grew 1.4% over the past three months (now at 39.2% total market share), Samsung’s share grew only 0.6% – while others, such as HTC and Motorola actually dropped in share.
Despite Apple’s gains, Android still takes the cake when it comes to platform market share, with 52%, as compared to Apple’s 39.2% – but considering that Apple is only working with a grand total of 3 available smart phones, compared to dozens of Android phones, that’s pretty damn impressive!
There’s no doubt about it – Apple’s still killing it when it comes to marketshare, gaining faster than their biggest rival despite not having released new hardware in nearly a year. In fact, Apple is the only manufacturer that has consistently increased their share while other manufacturers remained stagnant or even lost share.
Clearly the iPhone is a failure, Android is winning, and Apple is doomed, right? RIGHT?!
