3 months considering that its launch, Android 5.0 Lollipop is running on practically less compared to 0.1 % of devices which received the update, says Google itself. For those which have actually been following Android very closely since it wased initially released, this information should not be as well surprising. More on this right after the jump.
Released in mid-October last year, Lollipop is meant to be among the most comprehensive updates to the Android system since Ice Cream Sandwich was launched, with the much hyped Material Style, and bunch of other improvements and functions under the hood.
All that behaves, however it would be nicer if the update actually found its means on to Android devices faster than the wait which appears to have actually become a style whenever Google releases a new significant upgrade to the Android OS. According to Google’s own official data which showcases the malfunction of all OS version setups until the 5th of January 2015, Android 5.0 Lollipop does not even make the cut for being shown in the distribution graph given just how it’s working on less compared to 0.1 % of devices.
Android 4.1 via 4.3 Jelly Grain and Android 4.4 KitKat seem to be prevalent as the 2 versions of the mobile OS that are running on practically 85 % of the devices. Jelly Grain is still leading with 46 % with KitKat can be found in at 39.1 % which is a boost from 33.9 % simply last month.
So where is Lollipop? Shipping with the most recent Nexus devices and presented as an upgrade to the remainder of the Nexus family down to the Nexus 4, Lollipop has also located its method over the Samsung Galaxy S5 also, albeit in 3 markets just; South Korea, Poland and Spain. That’s not even quarter of all the Android devices, and while we can understand that Lollipop is set to be rolled out to simply a handful of sustained mobile phones and tablets, that still leaves a huge chunk of those without the Lollipop goodness.
HTC One M7 and M8 are likewise to get the Lollipop upgrade and while HTC has offered an official time-frame, there’s still some delay. The same holds true for the LG G3 which hasn’t received the Lollipop upgrade yet. I could go on naming crown jewel versions from various other manufacturers, and this is specifically just what drives the sales of these Nexus household of devices.
