Windows Phone may have shown growth in Europe, but it seems the case is a little different if you take into account just the US market. Recently, ComScore released their latest report for the smartphone market share in the US, showing the top operating system, top OEM, and last but not the least, the apps. According their latest report, Windows Phone remained stable and didn't show any improvement compared to their previous report.
"comScore, a leader in measuring the digital world, today released data from comScore MobiLens and Mobile Metrix, reporting key trends in the U.S. smartphone industry for May 2014. Apple ranked as the top smartphone manufacturer with 41.9 percent OEM market share, while Google Android led as the #1 smartphone platform with 52.1 percent platform market share. Facebook ranked as the top individual smartphone app," says the report.
As far as the operating systems are concerned, Android is still the king with 52.1 percent market share. Google's operating system also didn't show any improvement, which is kind of a surprise. Apple is on the second spot with 41.9 percent, with an increase of 0.6 percent followed by Microsoft in the third spot with 3.4 percent.
Apple is also the top smartphone OEM in the US, with a market share of 41.9 percent, up from 41.3 percent. The second spot is captured by Samsung with a 27.8 percent share, while LG and Motorola are on the third and fourth spot, respectively.
