Rounding out the top five are HTC, Motorola, and LG, all of which lost share once again.

In the platform space, Google is still first courtesy of Android, Apple is second with iOS, but the latter continues to gain on the former. For the first time, Apple’s gains in the hardware space resulted in Android neither gaining nor losing share. Rounding out the top five are BlackBerry, Microsoft, and Symbian.

This data all comes from market research firm comScore, which collected the data from their regular surveys of 30,000 mobile subscribers in the U.S. The firm says 142 million Americans owned smartphones in June, up 4% since March.

Among the top 5 smartphone OEMs, Apple gained 0.9% in terms of smartphone subscribers, while Samsung grabbed another 2%. HTC dropped 0.5%, Motorola was down 1.3%, and LG dropped 0.2%.

The iPhone 5 is keeping Apple up top, along with assistance from the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. However, Samsung, with such products as their new Galaxy S4, continues to push back.
