Samsung and Android are at the top of the smartphone ladder, according to the latest comScore mobile market share report.

Samsung has taken 26% of the global smartphone pie in September 2012, compared to 25.6%back in July, says the study.

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2 launch was the firm’s main growth driver, as the phablet already sold over three million units worldwide. It has proven that there is a big room in the market for larger handsets with pumped up specs.

The Korean company is followed by LG on second at 17.7%, despite dropping 1.1%. Meanwhile, Apple tails behind on third at 17.5%, a surge of 2.1% from July, attributed mainly to the recent iPhone 5 launch.  

Other contenders include Motorola at fourth place with 10.9% and HTC at fifth with 6.2% market share.

On the smartphone operating systems space, Android continues to hold the throne for Google with a 0.9% increase to 52.5% of the smartphone market.

Apple comes in at second, with iOS growing nearly 2% to reach 34.3% of all users.

As expected, RIM's Blackberry and Microsoft's Windows Phone are both down as of September, with 8.4% and 3.6% of the smartphone market, respectively.

Blackberry dropped 2.3% since July and it would be interesting to see how Windows Phone 8 will perform in the market, though it is not expected to close in on Android or iOS anytime soon.
