Samsung still retains a 36 % share of the US smartphone market, latest data from Counterpoint Research shows.

It also led the overall US mobile phone market with a 37 % share.

This is good news for Samsung which has lost the top spot this quarter in both India and China.

The Galaxy S5 was a winner for Samsung as it generated 50 % more demand than the Galaxy S4 in the US.

Samsung also has the upcoming Galaxy Note 4 which could help it keep the lead.

The US market is a three-way split between Samsung, Apple and all other phonemakers combined.

With the launch of a new iPhone Sep 9, Apple -- which has a 25 % share of the US market -- will look to improve numbers and unseat the South Korean giant from its stronghold.
