Android Nougat is currently installed on less than 0.4% of all Android devices

According to data collected by Google between November 1 and November 7, Android 7.0 Nougat is now installed on 0.3% of all Android devices in use around the world. As you probably know, only the LG V20, Nexus devices, and the Pixel C currently run 7.0 Nougat. Android 7.1 Nougat is not featured in Google's chart because it's installed on less than 0.1% of devices (basically, just the Pixel and Pixel XL are included here).
All in all, Android Nougat - 7.0 and 7.1 - can be found on less than 0.4% of devices in the wild. Since it's limited to the LG V20, plus the Nexus and Pixel series for now, we're not exactly shocked to see that the new version of the OS is not yet ready to make a bigger impact.
Meanwhile, Android Lollipop (5.0 and 5.1) still holds the crown with 34.1% of devices being stuck on it, followed by Android 4.4 KitKat at 25.2%, and Android Marshmallow at 24.0%.
With Samsung, LG, Motorola, HTC, and others planning major software updates for the coming months, Android Nougat is likely going to gain a few full percents pretty soon.

Florin you left out the LG V20 in your second paragraph listing 7.0 Nougat devices. Unless I'm wrong...

98% of people, normal consumera, don't care, the other 1% (tech enthusiasts) this is of no consequence since we are always updating, swapping, or rooting, the remaining 1% will complain yet buy from the Vendors that never update.... 99% percent of statistics are made up but this is real....99% of people that say this is real are making it up....there goes those statistics again.... Bu,t again who gives a heck?

KK still working fine for me. lol. Lightest revision, good ram management, no battery drain issues, still quick. Don't fall into that trap that newer is always better folks! Read the changelogs, bugs, forums before deciding to update.

I'm surprised any of the devices before KitKat are still working well enough for someone to justify holding onto them. It's over 3 years old - which means that some of the devices with Kitkat are even older than that.
