According to Google, Android Lollipop is now running on at least one Android smartphone for every five in the wild. This includes both Android 5.0 and 5.1 and is almost a 3 percent increase from a similar study made in August. The search giant reached its conclusion after monitoring user access to the Play Market during a 7-day period in the month of September.

Android 5.0 is now at 15.9 percent compared to 15.5 percent in August, while Android 5.1 has nearly doubled to 5.1 percent from 2.6 percent last month. Android 4.4 KitKat has been relatively steady at 39 percent for the past few months and still makes up the majority of active Android smartphones. Jelly Bean (4.1 to 4.3) is not far behind at 31.8 percent, which is a slight decrease from 33.6 percent a month prior. Most existing Jelly Bean users are still on 4.1 and 4.2 instead of its final 4.3 update.

Digging down even further shows a dwindling Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) user base. The survey finds only 3.7 percent of active Android smartphones still run ICS, which is down from 4.1 percent in August. Gingerbread (2.3.3 to 2.3.7) and Froyo (2.2) are currently at 4.1 percent and 0.2 percent, respectively.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
