ComScore Report: Android OS and Samsung OEM Take Top Place

Steven Blum

The newest Comscore study explains the smartphone scene in black and white: in the U.S. Android is a total chart topper and ranks first place in terms of popularity while, as far as hardware goes, Samsung takes first place by a full 5% over LG. 

The American survey was conducted among more than 30,000 interviewees between the months of March, April and May, 2011. As you can see, nearly one quarter of the participants said they owned a Samsung. I'd write more but the numbers below should speak for themselves.

The only question: where is HTC?
