Android:from Google : How is the current version distribution




Android: How is the current version distribution in July from (Global & Blog) Google has released the latest figures for Android distribution. Raised this were to be a week, counted until August 1 devices that have visited at this time the Google Play Store. you look straight at Android yes even closer look, get it many manufacturers for years but not in the grip provided by Google Updates deliver also to the customer. This is partly understandable since you have not just simply distribute the update, but adapt once and then email or by network operator controls. Nevertheless, you have to keep the time in mind: Currently, 15.2 percent of all devices Android 6.0 Marshmallow installed – and the new release of Android 7.0 Nougat is just around the corner.

Google may be accused only slightly, the manufacturer should here get the buck. I do not write this on a whim, which is due to the lack of features in old versions of Android. It is the simple fact that you can see every month in Android security bulletin, which partly massive gaps in the system are detected. Sure, the gaps are not to take advantage of anyone, it requires skills and certain conditions, so that a device can be attacked.

Probably, the chance of being attacked, a small – but I want it personally not in the bulb that so many manufacturers do not give a shit about their old equipment. And no, that is not a subject that you sometimes just can explain away with “Custom ROM”. Many devices offer only once no support for it, have on the other side probably just the desire and knowledge to become active in this direction.

But once back on the figures. Marshmallow has made a small set, from 13.3 percent one rose to 15.2 percent. 35.1 percent occupied Lollipop last month, are now 35.5 per cent on the clock. 5.0 dropped something, gains made Android 5.1 Lollipop.

KitKat lost 30.1 percent last month to now comes to 29.2 percent. Jelly Bean was still in last month at 17.8 percent, in the current survey period are 16.7 percent. The other systems are further Froyo (0.2) and Ice Cream Sandwich “also ran” stable at 0.1 percent Gingerbread 1.7 percent to 1.6 percent (-0.1).

The fact that these statistics are global and not relate to a fringe group of techies showing our statistics last 30 days here on the blog. 48.84 percent with Android 6.0.1, 11.08 percent with Android 5.1.1, 9.75 percent with Android 6.0, 6.28 percent with Android 5.0.2 and 6.12 percent with Android 4.4.2. The rest lies beneath.
