Samsung still the largest among Android makers, but still far behind Apple

As of August, 2013, Android still controls over half of the US market share, according to analysis by comScore. 51.6 percent of the mobile market is impressive, but it is down 0.8 percentage points compared to May of this year. Apple's iOS, on the other hand, has gained market share in that period, up to 40.7 percent from 39.2 percent a few months earlier.

In terms of which manufacturers are selling devices, naturally Samsung is still on top of the Android heap. With 24.3 percent of the US market secured — up 1.3 percentage points since May — Samsung is solidly behind Apple's 40.7 percent (the same as its OS market share, of course) but far and away ahead of everyone else.

Rounding out the top five manufacturers are HTC at 7.4 percent (down 1.3 percentage points), Motorola at 6.9 percent (down 0.9 percentage points) and LG at 6.7 percent market share.
