Android Distribution numbers are in – Lollipop now on 1.6% of devices

Android Distribution February 2015
Google has just announced the latest Android Distribution numbers and everyone will be pleased to know that after three months MIA, Android 5.0 has made its first appearance.

Google’s inability to maintain stocks of Nexus 6 phones may have contributed to a low entry point, but at 1.6% it’s a good start. For comparisons sake, KitKat entered the Android Distribution statistics earlier showing up only a month after release into AOSP starting at 1.1%, from which point it’s grown to now be on 39.7% of devices.

The rest of Android has mostly dropped slightly to accommodate the entry of Lollipop, except for Froyo which maintains a 0.4% market share. If you know anyone with a Froyo device, do them a favour and point them towards a phone store who will be happy to get them onto a new device and contract in no time at all.

For your convenience, here’s the comparison of the current stats to last months.

Android Version December January
Android 2.2 (Froyo) 0.4% 0.4%
Android 2.3.3 – 2.3.7 (Gingerbread) 7.8% 7.4%
Android 4.0.3 – 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) 6.7% 6.4%
Android 4.1.x (JellyBean) 19.2% 18.4%
Android 4.2.x (JellyBean) 20.3% 19.8%
Android 4.3 (JellyBean) 6.5% 6.3%
Android 4.4 (KitKat) 39.1% 39.7%
Android 5.0 (Lollipop) 1.6%

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

I still have a Froyo device. A Telstra T-Touch Tab.
Its sole use now is as a bedside clock.
