Latest data shows 36.1% of Android devices running Lollipop with just 2.3% sporting Marshmallow

22.3% of Android devices were powered by Android 4.1 through Android 4.3, known as JellyBean. The 2.3% share held by Android 4.0.3-4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich was topped by the 2.6% slice of the pie that belonged to Android 2.3.3-2.3.7 Gingerbread.
Once the next generation flagship models from HTC, LG and others start to join the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, we should see a pick up in devices carrying Android 6.0. At the same time, older models currently running Android 5.0 and Android 5.1 will start receiving their update to Marshmallow. It might be July or August before we see a measurable increase in Android 6.0 powered Android devices.

Just wait until fall rolls around. You won't see Android N until 2017.

Blame f*ckn google for not releasing the latest Android build to OEMs months before it's released to public...software isn't magic, it takes time to implement the more features you pack into it.

For as long as I continue using my current phone, I will stay on Kit Kat. Only thing annoying is the stupid update reminders.
