Motorola holds down the third-place spot with 6.7 percent of the market
Reporting its market share numbers for Q4 2013, comScore shows Android taking a small dip in overall share of the U.S. at the end of the year. Compared to the period ending in September 2013, Android dipped by 0.3 percentage points to 51.5 percent of the market as of December, with Apple gaining to 41.8 percent — BlackBerry and Microsoft round out the three and four spots, naturally.
On the manufacturer side, Apple leads things in the U.S. still with that same 41.8 percent of the market, with Samsung a relatively distant second-place with 26.1 percent, which is up 1.2 percentage points in the quarter. In a very distant third place, Motorola is holding things at 6.7 percent, just marginally above LG with 6.6 percent and HTC with 5.7 percent. That of course only adds up to 86.9 percent, with a variety of other manufacturers making up the gap to 100 percent of the market.
