ComScore: Android, IOS And WP Shares In The US RiseBy cheatmaster 08:16 Sun, 18 Jul 2021 Comments
The latest comScore report on the smartphone market in the USA is out. It reveals minor increases of the Android, iOS and Windows Phone shares among the US subscribers, while BlackBerry's share keeps sliding down.
As of October 52.2% of the US subscribers are using Android Operating System (OS) - that's 0.4 points more than July and makes the Google platform the biggest gainer. Apple's iOS and Microsoft's Windows Phone have also gained popularity - both platform subscribers have increased by 0.2 points since July up to 40.6% (Android) and 3.2% (WP). The troubled BlackBerry took a huge hit though - its total share shrank by 0.7 points down to just 3.6%.
Surprisingly, the launch of the recent iPhones didn't assist Apple improve its utilize base in the US in a meaningful way. The Cupertino company is still responsible for 40.6% of all smartphones used in the country, but the modest gain over July recommends those who bought the iPhone 5s and 5c are mostly upgraders rather than recent iOS users.
Samsung's latest flagship - the Galaxy Note 3 seems to have done a better job, the Korean manufacturer total shipments share rose by 1.3 points up to 25.4%.
Finally, Motorola's shipments also rose a hair, while HTC's and LG's lost some ground. It seems Moto X is helping the Google-owned Motorola regain some share.
Unsurprisingly, the company in biggest distress is BlackBerry. It is losing subscribers quick and its shipments have become really insignificant in what used to be one of its strongest markets. Let's hope the company find a way to turn its fortunes around quickly or it risks disappearing from the map altogether.
