Interestingly, LG (NYSE:LPL) registered a growth of 0.1 percent although it stood at the bottom of the top 5 list, owing to the success of Nexus 4.

Top Smartphone Platform

Android bagged the crown in with 51.8% market share in July, which is although 0.2% less than it was in April, but still enough to keep it on the top spot. Apple’s market share increased from 39.2% in April to 40.4% in July, indicating that users aren’t too keen to wait for the yet-to-be-launched iPhone 5S as they have the option to upgrade. BlackBerry’s (NASDAQ:BBRY) market share dropped to 4.3% in July from 5.1% in April, as the new OS failed to create any ripples in the global market. Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) maintained a steady share of 3% throughout, which isn’t as bad given the company’s delay in responding to the smartphone growth in recent years. The decrease in Symbian’s share came as no surprise to us and only indicated the shift towards smartphones.
