Samsung took second at 25.4 percent share, followed by Motorola, HTC, and LG to round out the top five.
As far as operating systems go, Android remains king at 52.2 percent share, followed by Apple at 40.6 percent and BlackBerry and Windows Phone accounting for the rest.
Samsung grew faster than Apple, but still has a very long way to go if it wants to surpass the Cupertino giant. Motorola actually gained share, one of the few times in the last five years it has done so, while HTC saw another steep decline. LG stayed mostly flat.
BlackBerry continues its steady decline to zero, while Microsoft/Nokia continues its extremely slow climb to third place. Windows Phone has fared much better in Europe and around the globe but the U.S. remains a two pony show.
