Android Nougat Now Running on 15.8 Percent of Active Devices, Oreo Not on Chart: Google

While all the news this week is revolving around Apple and the buzz it created around the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus, Google has released its Android platform distribution chart for the month of September. The chart shows that Android Nougat continuing to gain market share, with its presence now on almost 15.8 percent active devices. However, the latest Android Oreo version could not find its place in the chart for the same month – notably, Android versions with less than 0.1 percent share of active devices aren’t listed, implying Oreo is currently on fewer than those many devices.

In June this year, the Android Nougat version was found running on 10 percent of active devices. Then in July and August, Android Nougat reached 10.6 percent and 13.5 percent respectively. The total share of Android Nougat for September has now hit 15.8 percent, which includes 12.3 percent of devices on the Android 7.0 Nougat version and 1.2 percent of devices on Android 7.1 Nougat.

The new statistics show that Android Marshmallow continues to dominate with up to 32.2 percent share. The distribution share for Android Marshmallow has declined, but fell just 0.1 percent from the last month’s number that stood at 32.3 percent.

In addition to Android Marshmallow, all other Android versions have also declined. These builds include Android Gingerbread (at 0.6 percent share) and Ice Cream Sandwich (with 0.6 percent share) – which both fell 0.1 percent. Jelly Bean at 6.9 percent share, fell 0.7 percent. KitKat, currently at 15.1 percent share, fell 0.9 percent, while Lollipop, with a share of 28.8 percent, fell 0.4 percent.

Google says that this data has been collected during a 7-day period that concluded on September 11, and Android builds with less than 0.1 percent share have been excluded. It should also be kept in mind that Google takes only those Android devices into account that support Google Play (which itself supports Android 2.2 and above).

Google’s latest version Android Oreo officially rolled out to Pixel and Nexus devices a few days ago and it will take more than a month to get itself a substantial share in the Android platform distribution chart, as per recent trends.

The distribution chart also goes on to mention the OpenGL ES distribution amongst the active devices. While the latest OpenGL versions are not there in the chart, a major portion is dominated by OpenGL version 3.0 – standing at 45.8 percent, rising 0.2 percent. The other two versions in the chart are OpenGL 2.0 with 37.3 percent share (declining 0.3 percent) and OpenGL 3.1 with 16.9 percent distribution share (rising 0.1 percent). Note that support for a certain version means that it also supports any lower versions of OpenGL API, Google says in its developers blog post.



Android Distribution Numbers for September Shows Nougat is Up

Just as expected!

Google has a habit of releasing the Android distribution numbers right after they start rolling out the monthly security update for supported Nexus and Pixel devices. The company did publish their security bulletin details earlier in the month, but it wasn’t until today that we started to see the OTA updates reach consumers. So now that those updates are going out, we now have the updated Android distribution numbers for the 7-day period ending on September 11, 2017.

As always, keep in mind that this data is collected from devices which have visited the Play Store during that 7-day period. So while it’s not a 100% accurate representation, it gives us an idea as to how the Android landscape is laid out when it comes to how many people are running certain versions of Android. Android 7.x Nougat has been taking its time since it was released last year, but we’re now seeing its market share has gone up while everything else has gone down compared to last month.

So to start with, Android 7.x Nougat is now being used on 15.8% of active devices on the market right now. This is up from the 13.5% that we saw it at last month. Android 6.0 Marshmallow actually ended up losing 0.1% this month as it comes in at 32.2% when it was at 32.3% last month. Android 5.x Lollipop dropped down to 28.8% from 29.2% that we saw it at in August. The last of the big contenders is Android 4.4 KitKat, which is at 15.1% now while it was at 16% last month.

So that’s the majority of the state of Android right now. When looking at the leftovers, we can see Android 4.1.x, 4.2.x and 4.3.x Jelly Bean is at 6.9% when it was at 7.6% back in August of 2017. Then 4.0.x Ice Cream Sandwich is at 0.6% (which is down from 0.7% a month before) and lastly Android 2.3.x Gingerbread dropped 0.1% as well from 0.7% down to 0.6% this month.

Android Version August 2017 September 2017
Android Gingerbread 0.7% 0.6%
Android Ice Cream Sandwich 0.7% 0.6%
Android Jelly Bean 7.6% 6.9%
Android KitKat 16% 15.1%
Android Lollipop 29.2% 28.8%
Android Marshmallow 32.3% 32.2%
Android Nougat 13.5% 15.8%

Android 7.0 Nougat Update Comes To Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo

Samsung has now begun to roll out the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Galaxy S5 Neo after a variant of the phone showed up at the Wi-Fi Alliance in July with Nougat as its operating system, according to a new report by SamMobile. The report suggests that this may be the last major update that is coming to the phone before the South Korean tech giant finally stops rolling out support for the Galaxy S5 Neo, as the handset’s support window is coming to its end.

The Android 7.0 Nougat update bumps up the firmware version for the Galaxy S5 Neo to G903WVLU1CQH4, and it is starting to hit the devices in Canada, though its arrival in other territories is expected to follow over the short term. The most recent update that came to the Galaxy S5 Neo was the March 2017 Android security patch. The handset also received the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update in June of last year, which brought a slew of features to the device including Doze and Google Now On Tap, among others. Launched in August 2015, the Galaxy S5 Neo hit the market initially with Android 5.1 Lollipop. Although the Galaxy S5 Neo is considered an inferior variant of the Galaxy S5, the device still packs some relatively decent features including a 5.1-inch full HD Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080×1920. Under the hood, the phone is powered by the Exynos 7580 Octa processor while its graphics performance is fueled by Mali-T720MP2.

On the optics aspect, the phone boasts a 16-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter. The device also has an IP67 certification for dust and water resistance capabilities. The addition of Android 7.0 Nougat to the Galaxy S5 Neo is a very much welcome development, though it also means that the handset will soon become one of those Samsung devices that will no longer receive updates moving forward.

How to see the Boot Count of your Android Nougat or Android Oreo Device

We love statistics. Even mundane or largely useless statistics can be immensely interesting to people. With adb, or root and a terminal application, it’s possible to view the boot count of your phone which is how many times you’ve started your device! Obviously, this counter is only logged since your phone has been last factory reset. This data is stored in the settings database, so wiping your data in a factory reset means this boot counter is lost. If following the root method below, you will need Magisk or SuperSU. The value that is read, “BOOT_COUNT”, was only added in SDK24, or Android Nougat, so any devices on Android Nougat or Android Oreo will have this counter. Those on Android Marshmallow or lower cannot use this tutorial, as the string does not exist.

It’s not like you’re really missing out on much, though.

See your Boot Count on any Android 7.0+ Device (No Root)

Firstly, follow this tutorial to set up adb on your device. It has everything you need to get it up and running for Windows, Mac or Linux! Once you’ve got all of that setup, you’ll need to run the following two commands via adb. You can check if your device is connected as well with “adb devices”. The image on the right shows you how it should look.

adb shell
settings get global boot_count

That should then give you back an integer value, which is how many times your device has booted.

See your Boot Count on any Android 7.0+ Device (Root)

You need root for this one, so type the following commands in Termux (or any terminal application). The image on the right shows you how it should look.


Accept the prompt to grant superuser access.

settings get global boot_count

And that’s all!

With Android Nougat, the string “BOOT_COUNT” was added. This is a string which records the boot count of your device. As mentioned above, this string is wiped if you factory reset. If you care about this minor boot statistic, I suggest not wiping your /data partition. But you probably don’t really care. Maybe.

What’s your boot count? Let us know below!

T-Mobile leaks its own upcoming REVVL T1 budget smartphone, sports 5.5″ display and (potentially) Android 7.1 Nougat


A little under three months ago, our friends over at Android Authority posted about T-Mobile’s upcoming REVVL line of phones, starting with the T1. Since then, news on the phone has remained completely silent. However, T-Mobile has done us all a favor and leaked its own phone via its support pages, giving us a ton of information.

The phone is simply referred to as “REVVL” here, but it exactly matches the pictures Android Authority supplied of the REVVL T1. It features a 5.5″ display of unclear resolution, an unspecified 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage with microSD expansion, a 13MP rear-facing camera, a 5MP selfie cam, and a 3000mAh battery. AC WiFi is not present. Interestingly, while the original leak listed the display as 1080p panel, T-Mobile’s site simply says “HD,” or 720p. Additionally, one page says the phone will launch with Android 7.1.x Nougat, and another reads “Android 7.0 Nougat.”

Physically, the phone is pretty nice. Side bezels are pretty small, and the phone appears to have a front-facing speaker (or two, depending on the implementation). There also seems to be a front-facing flash, which is interesting to see on a carrier-branded budget phone. The software, at least judging from the lockscreen, looks near stock, with a few shortcuts on the bottom. The power and volume buttons are on the right side. The back features a circular fingerprint sensor and some T-Mobile branding.

Unfortunately, the pages don’t include any information on release dates or pricing, but this is a pretty solid roundup of information that we have. It’ll be interesting to see how the other upcoming offerings in the REVVL lineup stack up.

The state of Android updates in India: Nougat edition

The update situation has gotten much better in India, but there are a few notable holdouts.

Android continues to dominate in India, commanding a market share in excess of 97%. With India now the second-largest smartphone market in the world, that means a lot of phones running Android.

However, most of those devices aren’t on the latest version of Android, with manufacturers unwilling to commit engineering resources to continually update their products. For what it’s worth, the situation is better than last year, but there’s a lot of work left to be done.

To preserve my sanity, I’ve focused on phones that launched in India after October 2016. Here’s a look at where things stand when it comes to platform updates in the country.


Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus India

Samsung continues to dominate the Indian handset market, with the Galaxy S8 and S8+ doing remarkably well in the country. Both phones came with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, and continue to receive timely security patches — Samsung rolled out the July 1, 2017 patch a few weeks ago.

However, Samsung hasn’t fared well when it comes to delivering the Nougat update to its mid-range devices. That wasn’t the case last year, but this time around, the Galaxy A5 2017, A7 2017, and the A9 Pro are still running Marshmallow. The Galaxy C7 Pro is also on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, and there’s no mention of a Nougat update for the C9 Pro — Samsung’s first phone in India with 6GB of RAM — either.

Samsung has launched phones running Nougat, Marshmallow, and Lollipop — all in 2017.

More recent launches in the Galaxy J series — the Galaxy J7 Nxt — come with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. But for every Galaxy J7 Nxt, there’s a Galaxy J3 Pro, which launched in May 2017 running Android 5.1 Lollipop. Samsung loves to recycle older devices in India, and that’s how we ended up with a device in May 2017 running a version of Android that’s two years old. Considering the device is aimed at the entry-level segment, it’s unlikely it will ever see an update.

The Galaxy J7 Pro and J7 Max, which debuted in India last month, thankfully run Nougat. The J7 Pro is particularly interesting as it is the first budget phone from Samsung to offer Samsung Pay. The Galaxy On Max — another device aimed at the budget category — is also running Nougat.


Xiaomi Redmi Note 4

Xiaomi saw a drastic shift in its fortunes in the Indian market over the last twelve months, with the brand now the fastest-growing smartphone vendor in the country. Xiaomi’s always been great at rolling out products that offer great value for money, and it used that strategy to great effect with the Redmi 3S in the entry-level segment, the Redmi Note 4 in the budget category, and more recently the Redmi 4.

It’s no coincidence, then, that the Redmi Note 4 and the Redmi 4 are two of the best-selling phones in the country this year. With the Mi Max 2 making its debut earlier this month, Xiaomi has a wealth of options in the sub-₹20,000 segment. Unfortunately, only two products from the manufacturer — the Mi Max 2 and the Mi 5 — currently run Nougat.

At the Redmi Note 4 launch, Xiaomi announced a beta Nougat build for the device, and six months later, there’s no mention of a stable build. There’s no mention of when the Redmi 3S, Redmi 4, and the Redmi 4A will make the switch to Nougat.

Xiaomi has just two phones running Nougat.

Xiaomi unveiled MIUI 9 in China last week, with the beta test for the ROM slated to kick off from August 11. That’s for the Chinese version of the ROM, and there’s no word yet on when the global ROM will become available.

It’s likely that Xiaomi will deliver the Nougat update directly with MIUI 9, but that means an agonizing wait of at least a few months for the likes of the Redmi 3S and Redmi 4A. The manufacturer has confirmed that 15 devices will receive the Nougat update, with testing underway for five devices — Redmi 4, Mi Note 2, Mi Mix, Mi 5s, and the Mi 5s Plus.

Only one of those devices made it to India, so it’ll likely be a while before the rest of Xiaomi’s portfolio gets updated to Nougat.


Moto G5 Plus

Following its rebirth under Google, Motorola has led the way for software updates. The brand continues to be the first to deliver platform updates to its phones, and while there have been a few missteps along the way, particularly in the U.S., Motorola has a strong track record in India.

A key change in strategy for Motorola this year is the expansion of its portfolio. Lenovo is increasingly leveraging the Motorola brand name to boost global sales, and to that effect we’ve seen the introduction of several new devices in recent months. These are the phones Motorola launched in India over the last nine months:

  • Moto E4 Plus
  • Moto E4
  • Moto C
  • Moto C Plus
  • Moto Z2 Play
  • Moto G5
  • Moto G5 Plus
  • Moto M
  • Moto Z
  • Moto Z Play

Moto E4, E4 Plus, and the Z2 Play run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box, while the Moto C, C Plus, G5, and G5 Plus are on Android 7.0 Nougat. Motorola started seeding the Nougat update to the Moto M earlier this month, while the Moto Z and Z Play picked up the update earlier this year.

Most of last year’s phones have also been updated to Nougat, with the exception of the Moto E3 Power. Motorola

Motorola is a shining light in a sea of indifference.

Over the last two years, I convinced everyone in my family to switch to Motorola devices. The reasoning was simple: their use case included a lot of calls, WhatsApp usage bordering on addiction, and taking a few images. For that, the Moto G series fit the bill very well, and starting with the Moto G4 Plus, the camera was actually usable.

Aside from a few overheating issues with the Moto G4 Plus and intermittent performance drawbacks with the Moto X Play, I didn’t have to do a whole lot of troubleshooting, and that alone makes recommending Motorola phones worthwhile.

Only time will tell if Motorola can manage to deliver timely updates considering the recent additions to its roster, but for what it’s worth, the Moto G5 Plus continues to be one of the best phones in the budget segment.

Lenovo launched just four phones in the country in the last nine months — the Lenovo Z2 Plus, K6 Note, K6 Power, and the P2 — and all four phones have picked up the Nougat update. Now that Motorola is shouldering most of the burden in the handset segment, Lenovo has had an easier time rolling out updates to its device.

Vivo and OPPO


While Xiaomi focused its attention on the online segment, OPPO and Vivo turned to the retail segment. Both companies launched an ad blitz in the country, and it’s now at a stage where you cannot go over 100 feet in a major city without coming across Vivo or OPPO signage.

The aggressive marketing efforts have paid off — both brands are selling millions of devices in India. Their online presence is limited, but with a nationwide retail network numbering in the thousands, it doesn’t look like either brand is keen on the online space. The strategy has worked magnificently — seven out of ten phones are still bought at offline stores.

As both brands rely on offline sales, their phones command a higher premium when seen against the likes of Xiaomi. The phones also don’t offer as much value for money, and come with heavily-skinned versions of Android — OPPO’s skin is called ColorOS, while Vivo’s ROM is Funtouch.

Don’t hold out for the Nougat update if you’re using an OPPO or Vivo phone.

Vivo introduced seven phones in India this year — the Y53, Y55S, Y66, V5, V5 Plus, a special edition of the V5 Plus, and the V5s. ALl seven models run Funtouch OS 3.0 atop Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and while the manufacturer recently unveiled a Nougat-based build of Funtouch in China, there’s no telling when it will roll out to its Indian portfolio.

Given Vivo’s history, it isn’t going to be anytime soon. Last year’s V3 launched with Lollipop, and it’s yet to make the switch to Marshmallow.

OPPO has launched four phones in India over the last nine months — a special variant of the F1s called the F1s Diwali, A57, F3, and the F3 Plus. The F1s Diwali runs ColorOS 3.0 that’s based on Android 5.1 Lollipop, while the other three devices offer ColorOS 3.0 atop Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It doesn’t look like OPPO is in a hurry to deliver the Nougat update either.

Indian manufacturers


Over the course of the last twelve months, local vendors like Micromax, Lava, and Intex decided it would be more fun to give way to their Chinese counterparts, who now effectively control the Indian handset market. As a result, local brands have shifted focus to the offline sector, where they can eke out sales by partnering with retail stores.

Out of the dozens of largely-forgettable phones Micromax currently sells, only three devices — the Selfie 2, Canvas 1, and Canvas 2 — run Nougat. And as far as I can make out, there isn’t a single Lava Mobiles phone that offers Nougat.

Intex fares much better in this regard. Out of the 20 phones the manufacturer is selling, eight are based on Android 7.0 Nougat:

  • Aqua Lions 3{.col2}
  • Aqua Power IV
  • Aqua Selfie
  • Aqua S3
  • Aqua Zenith
  • Aqua A4
  • Aqua Crystal+
  • Aqua Elyt-E7

Karbonn Mobiles also has four phones that are on Nougat — K9 Kavach, A40 Indian, Aura Note 2, and Aura Power 4G Plus.

Smartron is a recent entrant to this list, and the manufacturer is one of the few local vendors to focus on software as a differentiator. The brand is a Qualcomm licensee, which gives it the ability to eke out the most from the hardware, and ensure that it ties in well with the software.

Its second device, the, is powered by the 28nm Snapdragon 652 and not the newer 14nm Snapdragon 625 like the rest of the budget segment, but Smartron was able to find a balance between energy efficiency and performance.

The phone runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box, and Smartron is committing to delivering security updates at least once every two months. Smartron doesn’t have to worry about rolling out updates to a lot of phones, and that should make its task easier.

Your turn
