We’ve been reporting recently on the publication of stats showing which smartphones are selling (well, shipping) best – in summary: Android Android Android. But what smartphones are people actually using?
comScore has some data on that for the US with its MobiLens report, which surveyed people to find out what handsets they’re using, rather than just recent sales.
It estimates that 51% of US mobile users are now on smartphones – 119.3m people – with Android taking a 52.5% share of those, ahead of iPhone (34.3%), BlackBerry (8.4%) and Windows Phone (3.6%).
The same piece of research claims that 54% of all US mobile users – smartphone and non-smartphone – used downloaded apps in September 2012, up from 51.4% in June. 34.4% played games, and 28.6% listened to music on their phones.
