“We believe Samsung on the strength of strong Galaxy S4, S III, and Note II sales surpassed Apple to gain top share of the U.S. smartphone market for the first time since the iPhone 5 launch,” said Michael Walkley, the Canaccord Genuity analyst who conducted the survey, to the New York Times Bits blog.
The blog does note, however, that the survey does not include Apple's retail stores where many iPhones are sold.
Lol, and that had to do with sales in the month of May. It turns out that S4's didn't sell well. Throw in the Apple retail stores and we have a huge earnings beat folks. Analysts are simply speaking their investment positions and nothing else. They don't know squat.
