Android has pulled ahead of Apple ‘s iOS in U.S. smartphone sales, according to data out today from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech.

During the three months ending with January, Android scored 49.9 percent of all U.S. smartphone sales, a 6.4 percent gain from the same period last year. Over the same time, iOS took second place with a 45.9 percent cut of smartphone sales, a drop of 4.7 percent from a year ago.

Microsoft’s Windows Phone eked out its own slice of growth, taking home 3.2 percent of U.S. smartphone sales.

The latest results mark a comeback for Android. Over the three months that ended in December, the iPhone won 51.2 percent of all U.S. smartphone sales, leaving Android with 44.8 percent and Windows Phone with 2.6 percent, Kantar said last month.
