However, it’s interesting to analyses the position of Android in U.S. market where people are more fascinated towards the Apple brand and have great respect for iPhone. But, with the time, the trend seems to be changing as Android has surpassed Apple’s iPhone market share in U.S. in almost all forms of smartphone industry of U.S.

According to a latest research from Neilson, Apple’s iPhone no more enjoying the lead position in Smartphone market share in U.S. Google’s Android has either taken it head-to-head in various segments or frog lapped it.

The trend is not going to die anytime soon as the research also shows that people in U.S. are slowly leaning more towards Android than iPhone. Among those who are expecting a new smartphone in the next year, approximately one-third desire to join the iPhone camp and similar number of people are promising for Android.

With all such numbers, propositions, there are also a significant number of late adopters who are still hanging around with traditional non-smartphone handsets.
