These figures are as a reminder in connection with connections to Google Play. For Lollipop, the distribution is between 9% of Android 5.0 and 0.7% of Android 5.1 which remains very shy for the moment.
The most common version of Android on terminals is the 4.4 KitKat alias with an adoption rate of almost 40%. KitKat is however in decline over the last month which reverses for the first time its upward trend. Mechanically, this is to be linked to the progression of Lollipop.

The progression of Lollipop should logically quickly be confirmed taking into account the availability of smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S6 or the HTC One 9. The fragmentation of Android has in any case been an opportunity for Microsoft to slip an unexpected tackle .
