Apple was at the top of the US smartphone market share in manufacturing, in the period from November 2014 until February 2015 with a 41.7% market share, followed by his rival Samsung 28.6%, which went down 1.1% from November 2014. This indicates the success of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus. Both devices became extremely popular. iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus offer a 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch display, which was extremely exciting for the users. Bigger display was something everyone impatiently waited for. Many Apple’s competitors launched the devices with much bigger screens, and we all wanted to see the Apple’s solutions. The devices that came out were both spectacular.
Although Apple is ranked on the top of the OEM market share, the Android platform is still the number 1 with a market share platform reaching 52.8% in February 2015, which is 0.2% higher than in November 2014. The Android platform is a combination of several major OEMs held by Samsung, LG, Motorola and HTC. Apple is ranked in a second place with a 41.7% market share of the platform going down by 0.1%. Windows phone market share is ranked on the third place with 3.4% and Blackberry market share fell from 0.2% to 1.8%.
These figures will certainly change, especially if we take some other things such as the fact that Samsung Galaxy 6, and Samsung Galaxy 6 Edge are being marketed in the United States. Microsoft also finalizes the Windows 10 for the phone that will be available in the upcoming months. Then, we will see what will happen to the US OEM and smartphone platform market share, because there will be many new Android devices
