That’s according to data from Counterpoint Research which estimates that Samsung accounted for 36.1 percent of smartphones shipped in the US between May and July 2014. Samsung’s figure is up 2.2 percent annually, second-placed Apple saw its share rise to 29.7 percent in Q2 2015 from 25.9 percent in Q2 2013.
Elsewhere, LG posted year-on-year growth to take third place, ZTE’s market share declined slightly, while Motorola’s jumped from 3.6 percent to 4.5 percent. Nokia (now Microsoft) didn’t feature in the top five, but Counterpoint Research says Lumia shipments were the second-highest growing brand, notching a 66 percent increase year-on-year.
