Almost 10 percent of active devices now run Android 5.0 Lollipop

By May 5th, 2015 AT 6:06 PM

The latest revelation of Android distribution numbers by Google marks the rise of Lollipop. It was last month that the distribution chart had only 5 percent devices running on Lollipop, but this month’s chart has shown double growth (10 percent) in the area. All this means that Lollipop is gradually appearing on more and more devices.

Android distributionAs per the latest figures, Android 5.0 Lollipop is presently running on nine percent of all Android devices, and the latest 5.1 version has increased its share from 0.7 percent to reach 1.1 percent. To remind, in the last month report, Android 5.0 had only five percent share, while the 5.1 version succumbed at just 0.4 percent.

Lollipop’s growth can be marked on the expense of Android 4.4 KitKat, which is now witnessing a fall, from 41.4 percent to 39.8 percent. However, regardless of being out of the scene, Jelly Bean is still hogging 40 percent share of all the Android devices (that’s just dismal).

Although there is a rise in Lollipop’s installation base, but when we compare it to iOS, the condition seems mediocre as iOS 8 now runs on 81 percent of iOS device. Despite all the bugs and storage issues, iOS seems to have an upper hand over Android when it comes to updating devices.

Google should release the newer version to all devices which support the same. Then companies must tweak their softwares on it. There must be a mechanism where consumers are not dependent on companies or carriers for update. The day this happens android will be king. Ios leads because it updated on each and every device.

From consumer ppint of view i think updates to andriod means nothing. Only when they buy new phone does he get the newer version. I think it is insane for google to claim that new version of android percentage will increase. Only high end phones are being updated. In the race i feel sony is far ahead with t2 c3 z ultra updated. Samsung is far behind as always and there us no trace of micromax lava karbonn etc.
