Android NB 1New information from comScore suggests that Android is the most wanted operating system in the United States, while in terms of manufacturing, Apple is still on first place. In May, Apple devices had a 39.2% percent share on the US smartphones market, 0.3% more than the previous quarter, while Samsung, the runner-up, had a 23% share at the same time, with a bigger growth, of 1.7% than the quarter before. The main reason for this strong boost was the release of Samsung Galaxy S4. Other manufacturers like HTC, LG and Motorola have each lost a small percentage on the market, thus, HTC scored 8.7%, Motorola 7.8% and LG 6.7%.

Yet, if we sum up the Android operating system altogether, we reach a positive result, for it has registered a growth of 0.7% since the last quarter. Consequently, Android remains in first place on the market of the United States. All in all, Android holds almost 52.4% on the market, while Apple holds 39.4% as of the end of May. It is safe to say that what we have here is a significant difference.

Unbelievably, Microsoft and Blackberry don’t even stand a chance in front of Android and Apple, since their market share is dropping significantly every month.

It is obvious that in the US right now there are two leading rivals, Android and Apple, with Android in front of the game. What is surprising, though, is that other Android handsets like HTC One didn’t record a stronger growth, but this is the consequence of Samsung being leader among the Android manufacturers.
