Android distribution figures released – Lollipop climbs to 5.4% market share with some help

March 2015 Android Distribution
Google has released the distribution numbers for the Android platform for the past 7 days leading up to April 6, 2015 and the news for Lollipop looks to be fairly good, with a steady increase in market share.

There’s been an increase in devices running Android 5.0 and upwards, with Google adding numbers for Android 5.1 to the table – the combined total of which adds up to 5.4%. Lollipop saw an increase thanks in part to devices such as the HTC One M9 and Galaxy S6/S6 Edge beginning to launch globally, but the devices running 5.1 are still but a miniscule blip at 0.4%.

The rest of the data shows that KitKat is still growing, while everything else has begun declining in market share – except Froyo, which may be around for ever at this stage.

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

Android Version February March
Android 2.2 (Froyo) 0.4% 0.4%
Android 2.3.3 – 2.3.7 (Gingerbread) 6.9% 6.4%
Android 4.0.3 – 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) 5.9% 5.7%
Android 4.1.x (JellyBean) 17.3% 16.5%
Android 4.2.x (JellyBean) 19,4% 18.6%
Android 4.3 (JellyBean) 5.9% 5.6%
Android 4.4 (KitKat) 40.9% 41.4%
Android 5.0 (Lollipop) 3.3% 5.0%
Android 5.1 (Lollipop) N/A% 0.4%

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.
