According to a recent study by ComScore’s MobiLens service, Apple is still the leading smart phone manufacturer in the US with over 43% of market share for the third quarter of 2015.
The numbers show that even though there is a drop of 0.5% from the last fiscal quarter, Apple’s market share is at an all time high with a 1.9% increase from last year. Samsung came in second with 27.6% of market share with a matching 0.5% decline from the last quarter. This decline is inevitable given the annual refresh cycles manufacturers adopt.
What is surprising is that LG shows a 1.1% increase in terms of market share when compared to last quarter shares. It now sits comfortably at the third position with 9.4% market share.
Android ranked as the top smartphone platform in September with 52.3 percent market share (up 0.7 percentage points from June), followed by Apple with 43.6 percent, Microsoft with 2.9 percent, BlackBerry with 1.2 percent and Symbian with 0.1 percent.
