Apple's reign at the top of the smartphone market in the United States was short lived as Samsung wrestled back the top spot through the last quarter. The South Korean giant has dominated the markets for a couple of years, but the record breaking launch of the iPhone 6 put Apple at the top, a stunning feat.

While Cupertino continues to sell devices by the truck load, Samsung's sheer volume and the successful launch of the Galaxy S6 has ensured the company regains control of the market in the United States. Indeed, Samsung enjoyed a stellar quarter overall last period and shifter 82 million handsets through the three month stint, with the U.S. market accounting for the majority of those sales.

The iPhone 6 remains the best-selling individual smartphone in the States, but the Galaxy S6 has closed the gap and several other product launches in the country have given Samsung back the overall lead. Samsung also did well in its home region of Southeast Asia (including South Korea but not China) where it was the best-selling company with 5.5 million units sold.
