Android are not even for sale. The blame is on those vendors, created cheap phones with no future updates. Google always fixed bugs on Android. The only problem is there are too many bugs as there are no limitation on Android. Google should fix that too.
We can thank Sony for still upgrading some of their old products. My Sony xperia tab (first gen) was recently updated to lollipop. I was surprised that a poorly sold tablet would still be supported by Sony (which is struggling in mobile), while Samsung abandons their products after 1-1.5 years.

My wife have a Z3 Compact and 5.1.1 didn't came via OTA...
As a nexus user, I think Kit Kat was much better than Lollipop, but take that for what it's worth...
Google needs a newer better OS.
tejas, 04 Aug 2015note 2 get lolipop update?no .. & it wont happen
but doesn't matter .. kitkat with touchwiz & s-pen rocks ... never liked the white/flat concept of lolipop .. kinda reminds me of win95
but if you still insists on lollipop .. try flashing resurrection remix rom but you will lose the awesomeness of touchwiz s-pen features
The takeaway from this article is the fact that one-third of Android users are on software that came out two versions ago, Jellybean.
Happy Lumia 730 User with Windows 10 (which is not even released officialy) Love You MS :)
I'm skipping Lollipop mainly because of the bugs and glitches it have, and early Android M devices.
Why Android is so fragmented. That's why apple is king of flagship.

Best solve everything from the source. Alot of time was given Google to tie-up loose ends on android and make it update proof. So the blame is with android.
But at least they tried.
1. The AOSP phones..
2. Nexus line..
But they need to try harder.

I BLAME Android for being so open.. SO open no one company or org can make updates fast and effective. See what the biggest Android maker is doing... A NEW PHONE EVERY WEEK / Month.. its saddd.
There is no rule book on how to make a phone.. SO who in the end suffers? WE END USERS. But Truth be told... the only one to blame is myself... for buying ANDroid.. that boring piece of device that is junk after 2 years.

They use Android on their cheap phone because Android is open source. So there are no reason for you to blame Android.
People can't accept Lollipop because they don't see the future shape. Move on dude.
Anonymous, 04 Aug 2015No... its every phone makers. Except Nexus. The increase shown here have nothing to do with... moreyes android updates are the slowest especially with samsung releasing a new phone every month.
Anonymous, 04 Aug 2015kitkat is best version so far..lollipop design seems too whitishWhats the diff... there is no diff..
Just change icon?.. Nothing changed.
Improve performance...? Still Lags.
New Notifications and stuff... ? Just download third party launchers..
So whats the excitement to update? Nothing. Android is boring. Just buy a cheap phone.. and hope for no updates.
