According to a recent report by AppleInsider, which takes a closer look at comScore MobiLens survey, the iPhone has increased its overall market share by 1.4 percentage points.

While not number one, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) continues its attempt to close the gap on Samsung.

Here is a look at how the data was analyzed, from the article that accompanied the survey:

comScore, Inc. a leader in measuring the digital world, today released data from the comScore MobiLens service, reporting key trends in the U.S. mobile phone industry during the three month average period ending November 2012. The study surveyed more than 30,000 U.S. mobile subscribers and found Samsung to be the top handset manufacturer overall with 26.9 percent market share. Google Android continued to lead among smartphone platforms, accounting for 53.7 percent of smartphone subscribers, while Apple secured 35 percent.

Apple Inc. has to be excited with this growth, especially since its recent surge moved the company ahead of LG.

Right now, Samsung is the thorn in Apple’s side with a 1.2 percentage point increase that moves the company to a total market share of 26.9 percent.
