Digital business analytics firm comScore published its monthly report for the U.S. mobile market on Friday, and little changed at the top for the three month period ending April 2012.
Unsurprisingly, both Samsung and Android retained their crowns at the top of the mobile OEM and smartphone platform rosters, respectively.
However, Samsung barely flinched from January to April with only a 0.5 percent increase in the domestic market. Apple saw the biggest (and only other) gain in the top five with a 1.6 percent increase as it held on to third place behind LG. Motorola and HTC rounded out the top five with slight drops as well.
On the smartphone OS front, Android peaked to account for more than 50 percent of the market share at 50.8 percent, a 2.2 percent increase from January to April.
Again, Apple was the only other OS provider in the top five that saw an increase. This time the iOS maker clinched second place with a 1.9 percent jump to secure 31.4 percent of the U.S. smartphone market.
Overall, approximately 234 million Americans age 13 and older used mobile devices for the three-month average period ending in April. More than 107 million of them owned smartphones during the same time frame -- a 6 percent increase from January.
For reference, comScore researchers surveyed more than 30,000 U.S. mobile subscribers for this report.
