The research carried out by Kantar Worldpanel ComTech, shows that Android sales increased to 51.2%, up from 45 percent during the same three-month period in 2012. Over the same time, Apple's iOS dropped to second place as its share of U.S. sales fell to 43.5 percent from 47 percent.
The upsurge in Android OS is mainly due to Samsung's smartphone gaining an ascendancy over Apple - Samsung's sole competitor in USA. The Android liking is also due to the fact that it is much easier and cheap than the complex iOS, for which most of the users resort to jailbreaking.
