What's the ideal Android of today? A benchmark report has the answer
Well, ideally, you will fall in the majority with a handset that has at least a 5.5" display, Snapdragon chipset, 1080p screen resolution, 4GB RAM/64 GB storage, and runs on Android 8.0 Oreo. Don't let anyone tell you that you don't deserve it! We kid, but yes, these are the most popular specs in the chart breakdowns below. Bear in mind that people are usually putting their new phones, rather than old clunkers, through the benchmark grind, so those specs' popularity contest is probably only valid for handsets released in the first half of this year.
As we already noted, screen sizes have indeed grown up the most on record in the last year, so the move to 5.5 inches as the most popular diagonal, followed by 6-inchers, is rather explicable. The growth of the 6" phones' market share is also noted, saying that they will soon replace the 5.5" mark as the most popular diagonal. What we were surprised to see, though, is that 1440p phone resolutions, like on the Galaxy S8 or S9, only occupy a small market share, while 1080p seems to be the norm. Oh, well, Chinese flagships are usually with FHD or FHD+ resolutions, so that could make sense as well.
We liked the year-on-year increase in average RAM and storage sizes, but above all, we love that the most popular Android version is Oreo now. Again, one typically runs a benchmark on a new phone or after a major software update, so the aggregate Q2 database here is probably skewed towards contemporary handsets, but that's the whole point.
