Jelly Bean powered models now account for over 40% of Android phones

0. phoneArena 02 Aug 2013, 02:15 posted on

Turning the calendar page over to the next month can only mean one thing; time for Google to rollout the share that each Android OS build holds in the Android ecosystem. The data is collected from each Android powered handset that visits the Google Play Store. Between both Android 4.1 (34%) and Android 4.2 (6.5%), Jelly Bean now leads the way with a 40.5% slice of the Android pie...

Wow, Great!!! I think JB will eat most of the Pie even after KLP launch for more time.

Now all the trash talk of fragmentation can stop. 4.1 is decent enough for mid tier phones. 4.2 is luxury still.

I expect this holiday season will lead to another big dropoff in Gingerbread usage, and with even budget Android devices at least running decently, I don't think that's going to be the result of a mass exodus to iPhones. We're coming up on the two year mark from the last months of the last year we had new devices on Gingerbread come out. Once we hit April/May of 2014, we'll see the two year mark for the early adopters of the first major ICS phones.

Within a year we can expect Jelly Bean and above to start crushing the market share of older versions, and by that point whoever is left on 2.3 or below is there because they either can't get a newer device or don't really want to.

I wonder how many of the 2.3 people are first time smartphone buyers from 2 years ago, who havent upgraded? Like how my parents are still using flip phones from 2006, letting their upgrades sit and rot.

and over 99% of theem will slow down over time

dont you just love how they deny it until google offers a fix

the lengths they have to go through just to enjoy a decent phone

root, tweak, mod, rom, daily dalvik cache clears, factory reset

hahahaha

they know its true yet they will deny it to their graves all in the name of customization

It is funny how Apple lovers come on these pages and spew about lag and fragmentation when their own phones have the same problems. It makes me wonder if Apple has been planting seeds in the media.

iPhone 4 is basically dying on iOS 6. iPhone 4S lags from time to time. iPhone 5 stutters sometimes.

My GS3 stutters from time to time. Every device does. If you claim a phone does not lag or stutters at all, you're lying.

Do this: type in the words 'apple iPhone lag' in any search engine and enjoy the show.

Will JB became the new Gingerbread when KLP launches?

I can definitely see that happening.JB will continue to be the leader for another 2 years before succumbing to KLP.

All the crap Android has taken over the years is finally paying off. I remember having to defend my beloved platform to so many skeptics years ago. Now I have to explain things like "you can't download that on your phone. It's not android". I'm practically spoiled by this Note 2.
