Android platform stats: Nougat gets some crunch

Android platform stats: Nougat gets some crunch

Nougat has gotten a nice boost from 17.8% to 20.6%, marking over a fifth of all Android devices accessing Google Play Services running a fairly recent version of Android.

Programmer Dan Luu created a graph from the version distribution data, which appears to show a smaller fraction of Android users are benefitting from the latest version.

Final Fantasy XV's Noctis Will Be Playable In Tekken 7
Noctis is one of the two exclusive guest characters Publisher Bandai Namco promised would be added to the game as DLC. His addition to Tekken 7 is interesting, as he's the first non-fighting game character to be added to the roster.

These not very encouraging numbers stem from the fact that phone makers, as has been the case over the past few years, have been taking their own sweet time in updating phones with Android's latest version.

Besides the HTC U11, the company has confirmed the release of Android Oreo update to HTC U Ultra and HTC 10. Now some of you might be confused as, phones like OnePlus, Samsung and some Android skins will indicate to you which app is draining your battery, but with this new update, it will become a feature included with the Android operating system rather than manufacturer enabled feature. Indeed, the majority of devices are still on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, though Android 7.0 Nougat is just a fraction of a percentage point behind. Both the devices are expected to get the new OS update in the first quarter of 2018 (January-March).

Google's Project Treble promises to help speed up vendor releases of new Android versions, but only devices like the new Pixel 2 that ship with Android Oreo can take advantage of it.

For those of us who are interested in good deals, it might be a good idea to know which store offer more discounts and bonuses. The iPhone 7 Plus is a bigger version of the iPhone 7 with markedly better battery life and an enhanced camera.
