Report Claims That LG Is Currently The Fastest Growing Android OEM In The U.S.


According to a new report from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech, the Android platform gained a marketshare of 3.9% in the U.S. according to recent statistics. And among the Android manufacturers, it is LG which has accounted for a majority of the sales in the region.

With this, LG has officially become the third highest selling OEM in the U.S. behind Apple and Samsung. It seems like LG’s formula to launch a high end flagship instead of throwing plenty of midrange handsets at the market has worked greatly in its favor.

The G2 in particular has been one of the popular handsets of 2013 and while it hasn’t sold as much as LG would have liked to, there’s no denying that it has made a significant impact on the market.

This report states that customer satisfaction rate with the LG G2 is also the best at 9.2 out of 10 while the iPhone 5s is second with 9.1 and the Galaxy Note 3 follows at third place with 9.0.

This will certainly build interest for the LG G3 which is expected to break cover in a couple of months from now. The smartphone has built significant interest over the past few weeks as it is expected to be one of the first handsets to come with a Quad HD 2K resolution display.

Here’s what the Strategic Insight Director at Kantar, Mr. Dominic Sunnebo had to say –

“The LG G2 marks a significant change in direction for LG, now aiming squarely towards the top end of the market. User advocacy is hugely important in mobile and this is great news to help LG maintain its momentum. Selling phones is one thing, getting your buyers to help you sell even more is another.”
