Apple iPhones now account for the majority of smartphone sales in the United States, according to new data from market research firm Kantar Worldpanel ComTech.

For a 12 week period ending on November 25th, iOS-based smartphones made up 53.3% of unit sales. Android-powered devices claimed just 41.9%. Year-over-year, Apple has made a 17.5% leap, while Android dropped 10.9 percent.

The iPhone's success in the U.S. hasn't caught on in Europe, though, with Apple only accounting for 25% of sales as compared to the Android's 44% over the same reporting period. 

Here at GameZone, we love both products equally. I am the owner of both an iPhone and Android-based device. Which do you prefer?
