comScore just released its latest monthly mobile numbers, which chart mobile phone usage for a three-month average period ending in May 2012. During this time, 234 million Americans age 13 and older used mobile devices, which is consistent with the company’s previous report from February. Samsung ranked as the top handset manufacturer overall with a 25.7% market share, and Android came out on top, too, with a 50.9% share versus Apple’s 31.9%.
Samsung’s position in terms of its share of mobile subscribers has barely changed since the last ranking in February of this year, the report found, up just 0.1 percentage points since then. Following Samsung were LG (19.1%), Apple (15.0%), Motorola (12.0%) and HTC (6.1%).
