  • iPhone's Domestic Smartphone Market Share Tops 42%

    New data from comScore indicates that Apple's reach into the domestic U.S. smartphone market is growing more prolific.

    With iPhone sales at record all-time highs over the past year, it comes as little surprise that comScore's freshly published data reveals a bounce in domestic iPhone ownership.

    The findings from comScore MobiLens and Mobile Metrix reports rank Apple as the top smartphone manufacturer with 42.6 percent OEM market share (although Android still leads as the #1 smartphone platform with 52.4 percent platform market share).

    Coming in a very distant second place among top smartphone OEMs is Samsung with a 28.3% market share, down from 29.7% in the previous quarter.

    Remarkably, 187.5 million people in the U.S. owned smartphones (77 percent mobile market penetration) as of the close of March 2015.

      Pretty impressive considering the countless super-cheap on and off contract Android phones all over the place. I saw one at my grocery store for $20. You get what you pay for, but considering the large market for cheap phones Apple doesn't even sell to, 42% is amazing. It means their percentage of the price bands they do sell in is much much higher.
