But after looking at the past records, Lollipop has not scored well with time. There was a slight increase with the number of device from 0.4% in the month of April to 0.7% till yesterday. While, Android 5.1 was released on device three months ago,its natural that penetration of recent release wont be very high. Android Customization is a boon as well as curse for it, since all vendors want to customize it to suit their needs. Hence penetration of majority of new releases to masses takes time. In fact a point to note, Lollipop has scored on charts in past four weeks. But KitKat version is running on 90.7% of Android device in 5-years, remaining unaffected with Lollipop version release.

Now it is confirmed that a lot of users are migrating to the newer operating system version and not just the latest version. This is cleared from the first android devices share data from Google for 2014. If we see the active devices in January then the new KitKat release raised to 1.4 percent. In month of December older software was 54.1 percent and this month it is raised to 59.1 percent.

Jelly Bean still preferred in Android Devices over KitKat

We all know that KitKat is restricted to Google hardware with Google nexus devices and Motorola device and that is the main reason that most of the third party devices will either get upgrade for KitKat or ship with pre-installed revision. Result that came out is not surprising at all. Android always tries to improve its OS with every new version but the figures that we got here are telling a completely different story. Kitkat is with 1.4 percent of devices and on the other hand, Jelly Beans is with 60 percent of total devices.

Google have not mentioned their Android 1.6 Donut and Android 2.1 Eclair in their monthly report. This is because these operating system versions are not having Google Play support.

Smartphone giant Samsung has set a standard of its own in the mobile phone market. The series of Smartphones being launched by Samsung for all consumer class is the driving force for its popularity. Samsung has delivered a wide range of Smartphone with the best operating system available today Android. Android version launched in 2008 has blown away the OS platform. But have you noticed that these versions released are in alphabetical order which are named after desserts. Cupcake, Donut, Éclair, Froyo , Ginger Bread , Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean and now most awaited Kit-Kat . Give me a break, Google. Cut me off a piece of that Kit Kat bar.

Last month, a leaked document went wild on the internet revealing that the Galaxy Note 2, Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S3 will be the ones in the range of Samsung’s Smartphone devices to receive the much awaited and anticipated Android 4.4 Kit-Kat update. However, now it looks like the Samsung Mobile is considering bringing the latest Kit-Kat version which is open-source operating system also to its entry-level smartphones. Kit-Kat update can give users the requirement of minimum RAM for handsets to just 512MB. But not so good is that it doesn’t include Samsung’s custom Touch-wiz user interface that comes inbuilt on all of its Android based Smartphones — which makes updating devices a not so easy task for the OEM.

The list of entry-level Samsung devices being processed by Samsung to see if they are capable of handling KitKat without any problem can be seen below:

  • Galaxy Fame — GT-S6810
  • Galaxy Fresh — GT-S7390
  • Galaxy Core — GT-I8262
  • Galaxy Ace 2 — GT-I8160
  • Galaxy S3 Mini — GT-I8190
  • Galaxy S4 Mini — GT-I9190
  • Galaxy S Advance — GT-I9070
  • Galaxy Ace 3 — GT-S7270

As only for now Samsung Mobile is investing the compatibility of Kit-Kat on these ranges it cannot guarantee that it will have a good conclusion. So hoping for best result is the only thing anticipated buyers can do!!Kit-Kat users are vibrant young consumers of chocolate and candy bars, and that’s a good match with Android!!!
