Google forgot to revise the Android distribution chart last month, now reporting some massive growth for Oreo compared to February numbers.
The December 2017 Android distribution numbers are in, and version 8.0 Oreo still can't rival the prevalence of Marshmallow, Lollipop, KitKat or Jelly Bean.
The newest Android distribution chart is the first to include 8.0 Oreo, at just 0.2 percent share, with Nougat gaining 2 percent over the past 30 days.
There's little to be happy about in Google's latest Android distribution report. Nougat has crossed the 10-percent milestone, but it still trails KitKat.
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.
This month in Android distribution news: Nougat continues its slow rise to Jelly Bean-beating numbers, while Lollipop is still number one.
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.
Marshmallow is spreading to new phones and tablets, but according to the latest distribution report, it's still the fourth most popular Android flavor.
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.
The latest Android distribution numbers highlight the ongoing struggles of 6.0 Marshmallow to leave a mark in a world dominated by KitKat and Lollipop.
Marshmallow more than doubled its Android distribution share in the past month, but aside from Froyo, everyOS flavor in use still beats 6.0.
Google's Android L isn't final code by any stretch of the imagination, but we still wanted to see what's new. Hit play to see Android L vs Android KitKat.
A Samsung Android 4.4.3 update timetable has just been leaked, showing us when to expect revised firmwares to hit Galaxy S5 and S4 models.
Getting an update, especially a relatively minor one, shouldn't be difficult. Why, after all these years, are Android's platform updates so inconsistent?
For those of you that still sport a Sony Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR or Tablet Z, we’re sure you’ve been quite pleased with your ability to update these legacy devices to Android 4.4 KitKat. Sony has done a great job in keeping its phones up-to-date lately, though not everything has been fun and games. Users have flooded Sony Support forums claiming that there are serious battery draining issues, and apparently there is a fix coming.
Sony has confirmed that it has detected the battery drain issues of the mentioned devices, and this problem has to do with Google [...]
