So the data says from AdDuplex which has tracked movement on the Windows mobile scene. It continues to be mostly dominated by budget entries including the Nokia Lumia 635 and the Microsoft Lumia 640.
The data is taken from device entries into about 5,000 Windows phone apps running AdDuplex’s SDK on November 21.
Here are the top ten devices in circulation:

|8||Nokia Lumia 735||2.8%|
|9||Microsoft Lumia 650||2.7%|

Once we whittle the population down to devices running Windows 10 Mobile software, we do see a little more high-end representation.
|1||Microsoft Lumia 640||20.2%|
|2||Microsoft Lumia 950||19.3%|
|3||Microsoft Lumia 650||18.5%|

|10||Nokia Lumia 635||3.3%|
Windows Phone 8.1 remains the most popular version in use at a straight 80 percent with Windows 10 Mobile garnering 15 percent. In terms of manufacturer distribution of Windows 10 Mobile, Microsoft takes the top spot, having made nine out of ten phones out in the market right now. Alcatel is second with 6.2 percent while HTC (the last effort it put out was that One M8) holds onto a surprisingly large 3.4 percent. BLU and other OEMs are tied at 0.5 percent.
Microsoft is aggressively sending updates out to its Windows 10 Mobile users and those packages have been installed. Build #1607 has reached 77.7 percent saturation in the US and 83.8 percent worldwide. #1511 has 9.9 percent of US users and 8.2 percent of users globally. A healthy proportion seems interested in the Insider builds, taking up 12.4 percent of the US space and 8.1 percent internationally.
