    Default comScore: Apple, Samsung Reach New Level of Smartphone Market Superiority


    On Tuesday, comScore published new data from its comScore MobiLens and Mobile Metrix. And the information presented shows Apple and Samsung at their peak of smartphone market dominance.

    In fact, adding to the woes of competing device makers in their ongoing smartphone ambitions, only Apple and Samsung (among the top 5 device makers) saw growth over the surveyed period.

    Apple ranked as the top smartphone manufacturer, while Google's Android led as the No. 1 smartphone platform with 51.8 percent platform market share.

    All told, 147.9 million people in the U.S. owned smartphones (62 percent mobile market penetration) during the three months ending in September (that's up 4.5 percent since June 2013).

    In terms of numbers, Apple ranked as the No. 1 OEM with 40.6 percent of U.S. smartphone subscribers (up 0.7 percentage points from June). Samsung places second with 24.9 percent market share (up 1.2 percentage points), followed by HTC with 7.1 percent, Motorola with 6.8 percent and LG with 6.6 percent.

    World Wide market share is where the real fight is.

    And what really matters in the long run.

    The US market is still mainly subsidized, while almost none of the other countries are. Non-subsidized is definitely the path to go in the future.
