sr777, 06 Jan 2016Why don't you compare with other mobile OS's like iOS XD. It makes more sense to compare it to Windows since both run on a myriad of hardware configuration whereas Apple pretty much own and controls everything, including your soul.
Honest Realist, 06 Jan 2016Comparing one shit OS, to another? Great Job :D What are you a Linux user lol
I think.the fact that we moved up to so many devices being at least kitkat amd lollipop is a good thing.
And that in a few ways Kikat takes a few less resources or at least a little less space so is still probably best for the lower end devcies.
And marshmellow will start getting out.
Yeah iOS latest version is on most devices.....but its only a couple phones and the updates are dramatically less substantial
This is always going to be Androids biggest problem.
Looking forward to late 2017 / early 2018 when marshmallow gets to around the 50% mark.
I'm quiet happy to stay on Kitkat until a Black option returns in a future version
Can't stand Google white iOS backgrounds
Truth, 06 Jan 2016What are you all complaining about fragmentation? It's a similar fragmentation as the biggest ... moreOne is a Desktop OS and only Windows 10 is free. Previous versions had to be bought
What are you all complaining about fragmentation? It's a similar fragmentation as the biggest OS of all IT - Windows!
Obviously, Windows 10 vs Android Marshmallow is not fair considering Microsoft was giving away for free to everyone who had Windows 7 and 8.
Windows 8/8.1 vs Lollipop - 12.79% vs 32.6% respectively. Lollipop is basically the 'current' OS while Marshmallow is available to only few devices out there.
Windows 7 vs KitKat/Jelly Bean (minor update) - 55.68% vs 60.8% respectively. The OSes most people prefer to have, but still neither of them are outdated. Now moving on to the outdated OSes.
Windows Vista vs Ice Cream Sandwich - both barely existing, because obvious.
Windows XP vs Gingerbread - 10.93% vs 3.0% respectively.
Older Windows and Androids are barely existing as well.
Heck, Android is doing better in keeping people on still relevant OSes than Windows. Without Windows 10, Android is also doing better in bringing people to the more recent versions than Windows does. And like I've mentioned, Windows 10 succeeds so well because it was being given away to anybody. Marshmallow couldn't be pushed to everyone with Lollipop through Jelly Bean, people have to either wait until their manufacturer decides to do so, root their phones or buy new phones.
Android to look into & update calculator of kitkat & lollipop versions, which gives absurd values for most of the scientific calculations.
I still have JB. Only problem is poor memory management. But can't blame Android for that. These Brands change the Android code for their advantage. That's a major disadvantage of being open source. Once I had a tablet that automatically download an install app and show fullscreen advertising when doing something. It still automatically downloaded the apps and showed the fullscreen ads even after a factory restore. That means they changed the code.
Guess that means lollipop alone has a larger smartphone os market share than any other os.
problem with Android is that they do not have direct control to the hardware design, making the upgrade too hard. When Marshmallow finally get popular, android 8.0 should be available.
Really? What is the definition of active? The first thing that comes to my head when I hear android is fragmentation.
