Apple takes lion share of US market to retain top manufacturer position, Google leads in OS
It is the season of reports in the scene of mobile phones, and up until now, we have already had two – one which told us that Apple captured nearly all of the market share with a whopping 80%, and the other telling us that Samsung sold the most smartphones in the same time range, recording a massive 300 million plus unit sales. Well, we are not done with these kind of news yet as there is another one that tells us that the top manufacturer of smartphones in the US is Apple.
In what is another record for the Cupertino-based company, they managed to produce up to 45% of the entire units in the United States and that’s an increment of 2.3% as compared to like results generated in October of 2016. Samsung suffered a 2% drop and claimed a 28% share this year instead, while the likes of LG, Motorola and HTC made up the most share of what’s remaining.
Leaving the brands and going to the OS, Google still tops with 53.2% share, even though it has dropped 2% from their last rating. This is also to be expected, given the number of units that run on the Android OS as compared to iOS.
