Android 5.x Lollipop distribution numbers almost reach 10 percent

If the last time we looked at the state of Android (and its operating system versions), Lollipop was just popping up on the radar (1.6 percent), things are starting to look better and batter for the latest iteration of the platform. Android 5.0 Lollipop distribution is going faster and faster, most likely due to the arrival of the latest flagships to the market (as well as OEMs updating some of their phones to the latest versions of the Google mobile OS).

Almost double digits: 9.7% percent combined, or 9 percent and 0.7 percent for Lollipop version 5.0 and 5.1, respectively. KitKat is still the version which powers most of the Android-running gadgets on the market, with 39.8 percent, while Jelly Bean is close behind with 39.2 percent, spread over  four point releases. There are still Froyo and Gingerbread powered phones and tablets out there, but the key takeaway is that the latest version is picking up fast. The numbers in the chart below have been collected during a 7-day period ending on May 4, 2015. You can check the source link below for more statistics, like screen sizes and Open GL versions.

Opposed to Google, Apple has a different business model (and only its own devices to worry about, not a cornucopia of OEMs): iOS 8, Apple’s latest operating system, is powering 81% of Apple’s own iPhones and iPads.
