The USA is one of the top two countries that manufacture mobile phones. It's not a surprise she has a vast and competitive smartphone market that includes both big and small mobile phone brands. It is a tough market to penetrate.


Mobile phones have become a necessity in our day-to-day lives. And with so many brands in the market, it is difficult to make it to the exclusive list of the most popular mobile phone brands and to select from them.


That is why we have spent a lot of time researching and have compiled a list of the most popular mobile phone brands in the USA.


With LG out of the phone industry, several other phone companies like Oppo, Xiaomi, realme, Huawei, Motorola, Lenovo, Google, and other brands are in tough competition with the two dominant players in the game, Samsung and Apple.


Below is a list of the top 5 popular mobile phone brands in the US and the top-selling smartphone brands in the USA.

1. Apple iPhones

iPhones are manufactured by one of the top electronic companies in the world, Apple Inc. The company is one of the most valued brands in the world.  Apple takes the lead as the most popular US mobile phone in the market.

Even though there are no low-end iPhones, millions of Americans purchase the latest iPhones every year. Because of this, Apple is the most used phone brand in the United States.


In 2007, Apple released the first generation of the iPhone, which uses its operating system called IOS.  As of September 2022, the iPhone 14 series, which features the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro max is the most recent model from the Apple iPhone family.

Samsung is a very trusted brand and the largest Android phone maker in the world. They have successfully planted a foot in the USA because of their reputation.

3. Motorola/ Lenovo

Motorola is a popular mobile phone brand in the US.  Until 1988, it was a leading US based multinational company and manufacturer of mobile phones. However, the company fell into a loss that affected its position and market share.

In 2011, the company was divided into two independent public companies. Motorola Solutions and Motorola Mobility. In 2012, google took over Motorola mobility.


Lenovo, a popular personal computer manufacturer, entered the smartphone world in 2012 and acquired Motorola Mobility from Google in 2014.  Lenovo never stopped selling phones under the Motorola and moto brand names. This explains why many Americans are unfamiliar with Lenovo as a phone brand but still purchase Motorola phones.


Some popular Motorola phones are the Moto G200, Moto G22,  Motorola edge 20 pro, Motorola defy, Motorola edge plus, Moto G30, Motorolla edge 20 lite, moto G10, moto G50, moto edge 30, and Moto G power.

On 5 April 2021, LG announced its withdrawal from the phone industry and finally shut down its mobile phone division in July 2021 after experiencing a continuous decline in market sales. Thus, LG became the first major smartphone brand to withdraw from the phone market.
