LG has brought its marketshare up to 8.4% from January’s 8.0%, and Motorola and HTC are holding down the forth and fifth spots with 4.9% and 3.7%, respectively.
Also according to the report, Facebook is the most popular mobile application as of April 2015, with 71.1% marketshare reach. YouTube is the second most popular with 57.0% reach, followed by Google Search with 51.8%, Facebook Messenger with 51.8% as well, and Google Play with 51.1%. The report also states that 188.6 million people used a smartphone during the three months ending in April.
Overall, these numbers aren’t drastically different from comScore’s previous numbers, though it’s still nice to see who is leading the pack and who is falling behind in U.S. marketshare.
