comScore has released its detailed breakdown of the active smartphone users in the US for the trimester ending in April 2013. Apple is the top manufacturer with 39.2% followed by Samsung at 22.0%.

In terms of OS subscribers in the three month period Android is on top with 52.0% (down from 52.3% for the previous three months) with Apple's iOS coming second with 39.2% (up by 1.4 percentage points compared to the last trimester).
