Although Apple and Samsung are far ahead, LG Electronics seems to follow a positive trend these days like never before. According to a recent report published by The Korea Herald, "South Korean handset provider LG Electronics reached 20 percent share of the US smartphone market for the first time."

The source mentioned above also quotes data from Strategic Analytics, a market research firm that estimates a total of 7.3 million LG smartphones sold in the US in the first quarter of 2017. Returning to percentages, LG's market share in the US increased by almost 3 percent compared to the same period of 2016.

LG G6 sales were not involved in these figures since the US market got the new flagship in early April. Market observers claim that LG's performance in the US was driven by sales of the lower-price K and X series, but sales of the premium LG V20 did not disappoint, either.

Apple and Samsung control over 50 percent of the US smartphone market - 34.5 percent and 24.6 percent.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
