This month's Android distribution numbers hold no big surprises, although now we finally see Nougat taking off and increasing its market share by around 250 percent in just a month. However, the leaders of the market remain Lollipop and Marshmallow, with KitKat still in control of a big slice, as clearly shown by the official pie chart.

Android Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich refuse to go for now, both being stuck at 1 percent for another month. These are all the numbers:

  • Gingerbread (2.3.3-2.3.7) - 1 percent
  • Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0.3-4.0.4) - 1 percent
  • Jelly Bean (4.1-4.3) - 10.6 percent
  • KitKat (4.4) - 20.8 percent
  • Lollipop (5.0-5.1) - 32.5 percent
  • Marshmallow (6.0) - 31.3 percent
  • Nougat (7.0-7.1) - 2.8 percent

Google collected the data above during the seven-day period that ended on March 6, taking into account all the devices that visited the Google Play Store in those days. The most popular screen size/density combination remains normal/hdpi (240 dpi), with 36.1 percent, while OpenGL ES 3.0 gets to keep its crown as well, with 42.3 percent.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
