Android exceeds Apple's Smartphone Market Share by 10% in Q3

Washington, Nov 07: Google's operating system Android that is still the dominant smartphone platform has exceeded Apple's US smartphone market share by almost 10 percent in the third quarter, according to statistics by research firm ComScore.

Android's US smartphone market was 52.1 percent, up slightly from 51.9 percent for the prior three months, reported CNET.

While Apple's share dipped to 41.7 percent from 42.1 percent over the same period but its share may show growth in ComScore's next report.

Apple launched its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices on September 19, so the new phones were not included in most of the three-month period revealed by ComScore.

ComScore counted 174 million people in the U.S. who owned smartphones, up just 1 percent from the prior three months.
