Older Android phones and, now, Android tablets now have access to a more glorified Google type and voice search interface.
The latest Android distribution numbers are in, and of course, Nougat still trails behind new pack leader Marshmallow and silver medalist Lollipop.
We may finally see Nougat break into double-digit Android distribution territory...next month. For now, 7.0 and 7.1's combined share is 7.1 percent.
2.8 percent is still a small piece of the pie for 7.0 and 7.1 Nougat, but at least it's much bigger than 1.2 percent in previous Android distribution data.
The Android distribution chart for February 2017 includes month-to-month Marshmallow growth, Lollipop prevalence, and Nougat disappointment.
Still holding on to summer 2014-released Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 or 10.5 models? It seems there are no Marshmallow goodies in store for you, sadly.
Marshmallow seems incapable of surpassing the usage figures of Lollipop, KitKat or Jelly Bean, but compared to March, it's on a healthy upward trajectory.

And we’re not talking about the first sucky phone it did, here: it’s taking this year’s $300 phone and bringing up the price twenty-fold.
The Racing 808, actually made by Primo Mobile is a phone that appears to be all about the exterior: the $6,000 base model comes with a leather [...]
According to Google's newest OS distribution numbers, Android Lollipop is still behind both KitKat and Jelly Bean, just as Marshmallow starts rolling out.
Elephone has been a Chinese OEM we’ve been tracking for a bit with some boundary-pushing devices. Included in its roster is the “Vowney,” which came out in May of this year with a spectacular set of specs behind Android. We’re talking about it once again, this time with even beefier specs and a change in operating system.
Version A of the Vowney, the Android 5.0 phone, featured a 5.5-inch QHD display, 3GB RAM with 64GB flash storage, a 21-megapixel Sony sensor, a 3,850mAh battery and a MediaTek MT6795 processor (octa-core at 2.2GHz). There’s also a [...]
Lollipop’s troubles have been made very visible by the tech media to the national media. In the second case, it was with Android 5.0’s Stagefright vulnerabilities that led to the pouring of vows to step up security updates. And while the move to Marshmallow is ongoing and might bring a whole new slew of scrutinizing eyes to the Android platform, some phones will have the dubious honor of carrying Lollipop as their mature version of the OS. That makes this security hole a must to watch for.
Phones running 5.0-5.1.1 which have not been recently updated with the [...]
