HTC and Motorola both drop market share; LG holding down 5th place
Releasing its monthly report on the U.S. mobile industry, comScore shows Android with a slight decrease in market share as of September 2013. A three-month average ending in September shows Android with 51.8 percent of the U.S. market, down 0.2 percentage-points. Apple naturally holds the second spot at 40.6 percent, with BlackBerry and Microsoft taking up third and fourth place.
In terms of manufacturers (chart shown below), comScore shows Apple still on top with that same 40.6 percent of the market, up 0.7 percent, with Samsung holding second place strong with 24.9 percent of the market, up 1.2 percent. HTC holds onto third place just barely at 7.1 percent, down 1.4 percent between periods. Motorola drops to 6.8 percent market share, and LG 6.6 percent. If you're counting that also leaves 14 percent divvied up among various other small manufacturers.
