Recently, a measuring data firm “ComScore MobiLens Service” has reportedly stated that Samsung dominated 26.0% market shares in the U.S till the end of March this year. The firm surveyed more than 30,000 U.S. mobile subscribers during three months average period ending in March 2012.

According to the report, there were more than 106 million Smartphone users in the U.S during the three months period ending March of this year, up 9% compare to same average period ending December last year.

However, Motorola and HTC had 12.8% and 6.0% market share respectively in three month period ending in March 2012.

However, subscribers were using their devices for text messaging during three months average period ending March of this year, which is constant compare to December last year.
