BLU and Motorola Top US Unlocked Smartphone Market

by Linda Sui | Aug 08, 2017

The "unlocked" smartphone market has been growing rapidly across the United States in recent years. However it posted -13% YoY decline during Q2 2017 mainly due to seasonality, as well as sluggish performance of some OEMs. BLU maintained the top position this quarter but lost ground to other OEMs. Motorola ranked the second largest position, followed by, Samsung, Apple and LG.
