As every month Google has provided the latest statistics on market shares of each build of Android. No major surprises, but fortunately the newer views of green robot regularly grow in strength.

recent statement, Google consists of a 7-day period that ended on 4 January this year. As you probably guessed, once again the biggest part of the pie can enjoy a KitKat, who currently works for 36.1% of mobile devices with access to the Google Play store, which is a decrease of 0.9% compared with the statement of December. Right behind him is Lollipop which manages a total of 32.6% of smartphones with Android. Participation lollipop increased by 3.1%, of which version 5.1 is responsible for 2.5% of this growth, so growing group of users can enjoy the most refined version of this system. The last place on the podium belongs to Android Jelly Bean (24.7%, down 2.2 percentage points).

In the list also includes such compilations Android as Ice Cream Sandwich (2.7%), Gingerbread (3%) and immortal Froyo (0.2%). As for the Android Marshmallow, its share reached 0.7 percent, an increase of 0.2 percentage points. What truth does not seem to be many, but so far Foam can enjoy the official line of Nexus smartphones and a few devices of some manufacturers in selected markets and is first and foremost about LG and Motorola. Of course, there is nothing to compare these numbers to the results iOS 9, which last month worked at 70% of Apple devices, but we should not forget about completely different philosophy of both systems, which is the main reason for this, and not another situation. I do not want to start a war between the supporters of these systems, but Android contrary to appearances, is not so much dependent on Google, because in fact many manufacturers treat it just as a base for their own modifications, which develop and refine takes some time. There are no problems in the world of iOS, where he is responsible for everything only one manufacturer and should take all this into account. Besides, most of the fans of these systems know their strengths and weaknesses, and in a large extent, the choice between them is fully conscious, and this is probably the most important.
