December 2017 platform distribution numbers: Oreo’s piece of the pie nearly doubles as Nougat’s share continues to grow

Tuesday, December 12th, 2017

Well, it's that time of the month again. Like last month, Google's a bit later than it usually is with these numbers, and it isn't because we have a new version of Android for the chart. Although 8.1 has been released, this month's platform distribution numbers don't include it. Nougat continues to make gains, cumulatively adding an extra 2.7% to its slice of the pie, and Oreo has almost doubled to 0.5%. 

If you just want to look at the numbers, here they are:

Android version stats, December 2017

2.30.50.4-0.1

7.017.619.3+1.7
7.13.04.0+1.0
8.00.30.5+0.2

Oreo's gains might seem small, but it has increased ever so slightly faster than Nougat/7.0 did this long after its launch.

Honor 7X review: A contender for budget king

Saturday, December 9th, 2017


Honor is back here at the end of 2017 with another budget phone that, for all intents and purposes, is a better bang for your buck than its predecessor, the 6X. The specs have seen a slight boost, but the biggest change is the addition of Huawei's FullView display. Yes, that's right: a budget phone with an 18:9 screen, something thus far uncommon.

The 7X outright bests its predecessor and goes right up against the Moto G5S Plus, all while sitting at an extremely attractive $199 asking price.

‘Janus’ vulnerability allows attackers to modify APKs without changing signature, APKMirror already protected

Saturday, December 9th, 2017

Since the first release, Android has required developers to sign their applications. When you update an app, Android will compare the update's signature to the existing version. If they match, the app update will install. This way, developers don't have to worry about modified APKs causing problems, and users are kept secure.

GuardSquare, a security firm based in Belgium, published a report today about a vulnerability it discovered in Android.
