Google’s July 2018 Android platform update shows Oreo usage more than doubling since May

Monday, July 23rd, 2018

We get it, Google. You're busy with a lot of things, and platform distribution updates can fall by the wayside. Still, the most recent two-month gap was unusual. Someone finally had time to spit out new numbers today, and it's actually rather good news. Oreo usage is up to 12.2% across both versions, which is more than double where it was back in May.

This market share for Google's latest OS version isn't objectively good, but it's good for a new version of Android.

May 2018 Android platform distribution shows Oreo at 5.7%

Tuesday, May 8th, 2018

The big news today is all from Google I/O today, but that's not all we have to talk about. The developer dashboard has also gotten an update with new platform distribution numbers. So, Oreo is huge now, right? No, it's at a modest 5.7% usage share. That's up from just under 5% last time. That's behind Nougat's pace last year.

Here's a breakdown of this month's numbers.

Oreo versions are up a little more than one point in total, which isn't necessarily bad.

Android version stats for April 2018 show Oreo sitting at less than 5% after another modest gain

Monday, April 16th, 2018

Things must be busy at the Googleplex right now. That's the only reason I can think that Google couldn't get someone to dump the latest platform distribution data online for the last six weeks. The last time we had fresh numbers was the beginning of February, but Google has just issued an out-of-cycle dashboard update with new numbers. There are no surprises here—Oreo is still growing (slowly) and old versions of Android are shrinking (slowly).

[Shame] Samsung still doesn’t use Android’s seamless updates on the Galaxy S9 and S9+

Friday, March 16th, 2018

Earlier this week, I noticed that my Galaxy S9+ review unit had an OTA update available. This update addressed some stability issues with the camera and put the phone on the latest security patch (which is certainly a good thing). But at nearly 250MB, it was quite a sizable update, too, and so installation took a bit to complete - my phone was out of commission for over five minutes.

Really, though, it shouldn't have been.

[Deal Alert] ASUS ZenFone AR now $200 off: 6/64 GB $399, 8/128GB $499

Tuesday, March 13th, 2018

The ZenFone AR was a peculiar device when it launched. Just looking at the specs, it seems rather beefy for the time—few phones with the Snapdragon 821 had 6/8GB RAM options. This was all intended for use with Google's Project Tango augmented reality platform, but that was unceremoniously killed last December. As a result, the ZenFone AR is getting a $200 price cut.

This brings the 6GB RAM / 64GB storage SKU to $399, and the 8GB/128GB SKU to $499.

Razer Phone factory images now available for download

Thursday, February 15th, 2018

The Razer Phone launched last year with plenty of features that cater to power users. There's a 120Hz screen, a huge battery, front-facing speakers, and more. One thing that was missing: the option to flash factory images. The phone was unlockable, but the images didn't exist. Well, now they do.

To flash a factory image, you need an unlocked bootloader. Razer notes that unlocking the bootloader voids your warranty, but you're a rebel who don't need no warranty to be happy, right?

Verizon Moto G4 Play gets Android 7.1.1 Nougat after being stuck on 6.0.1 for a long time

Tuesday, February 13th, 2018

Motorola's excellent track record with updating devices fell by the wayside as it became part of Lenovo and started releasing more device variants than anyone can keep track of each year. Nothing is better proof of that than the Moto G4 Play's situation. The device, which was released on September of 2016, has been stuck on Marshmallow 6.0.1 for months and months as owners gave up on even getting an update.
