Who's the leading phone maker in the US? Samsung. Samsung take 25.7-percent of the market, gaining 0.1-percent this quarter. LG slipped 0.3 points to 19.1-percent, while iPhone maker Apple takes just 15-percent. Motorola is down 0.8 points to 12-percent, in fifth place sits HTC with 6.1-percent of the market, up 0.2 points this quarter.

 

With the current legal battles between Apple, Samsung and now Samsung's ally, Google, things should get more interesting with these numbers over the coming months.
