Don’t Believe Everything You Read, Android Users are as Current as iPhone Users

On Monday, an article came out of TechCrunch comparing the OS update statuses for both i*hone and Android users, making them look worlds apart and actually, a little silly.  According to iOS developer stats, almost 90% (89.73% to be exact) of users are on the current version which they describe as 4.X.  The article then goes on to claim that Android users would be lucky to ever see the most current OS version (Android 2.3) seeing as only 0.4% are on it at this time.  Sounds bad right?  Except that there is one major flaw with that argument and it has to do with that “.X”.

If we look at the iOS developer stats, they are taking every single version of iOS 4 and combining them into one percentage, meaning 4.1, 4.2, 4.3, etc. are all wrapped up into the same little package.  But for Android, we’re not allowed to do that?  Because if we do combine 2.1, 2.2, and 2.3, that puts Android users at 87.4% and only 2% behind iOS users in the “current” category.  Silly TechCrunch.

    I am still waiting for the 2.2 for my milestone, and the reason why Android users are up to date is because they can’t stand the 1.5/1.6 phone (which I still have my HTC Dream stuck forever in 1.5), so they buy/upgrade the phone which can use/hopefully can use 2.2…

    Kellex, I am a bit disappointed with your take on this one… have you actually read the changelogs for iOS versions 4.x?

    The biggest change they saw in the live versions of iOS is air print. That hardly compares to the massive performance boost and the addition of flash in Android 2.2.

    Now if we wanted to be fair, you should have pointed out that their latest iOS will only be supported on 3 freaking handsets in the entire market! I’m pretty sure there are more than 3 models of android handset that can run 2.3 :)

    This seems kind of like numbering semantics, though. It’s like saying that the Xbox 360 and the PS3 are on the same numbering system, despite the fact that the Playstation has had three iterations of hardware and the Xbox only two, because they both have 3’s in the title. Numbering is arbitrary. Remove the numbers, count the major updates, and the issue still stands as an issue. Or at least, I can’t have anything but a supergimped version of a non-official version of Gingerbread on my OG Droid.

    Fragmentation is the OS’s strength as well as its weakness. More phones, more carriers, more variety, more consumer benefit from that end. Just Google needs to figure out a better update implementation system.

    As someone pointed out earlier, everyone has access to the latest iPhone update. This is not the case with android. Also, iPhone incremental updates are never anything major, whereas the next version of Android is almost always a big deal (2.2 vs 2.1 was a huge leap), so it’s a little more critical to users of Android phones to get the latest and greatest, where iPhone users aren’t really missing much.

    If iOS and Android came out at the same time than it’d be a fair fight, but the fact that apple’s iOS came out first will always put it “ahead” of everyone else, no matter how much we (i) don’t like it. Give android a year or two more than we’ll see what’s really goin on!

  • Brandonv Gillis

    Come on guys, stop trying to fight it….. we all love a fragmented platform.

    Here is the reality of the situation… if you have the latest iPhone you can most certainly ALWAYS get the latest version of the O.S. and that is most certainly not the case with Android phones.

    Get over it and love Android for what it is.

    • Mrkylelovett

      I agree with you 100% the fact is android is so slow to update the many phones they have, infact I recently sold my samsung fascinate due to the update to froyo never coming almost 6 months late… so as far as updates go iphone wins by a long shot…

  • http://twitter.com/ardoreal Farfegnooghan

    I agree with the TechCrunch article. There’s a stark difference between Eclair, Froyo, and Gingerbread. UI changes, JIT compilers, and the development aspects are impacted significantly.

    Don’t forget to mention how Froyo introduced the Google push system too that Eclair doesn’t have, and is a significant battery saver and feature enabler.

    It’s disingenuous to say that Android 2.x’s are all similar when they are so different.

    In contrast there are some feature differences between the iOS 4.x versions but none are so significant as fundamental development and UI paradigms that change like Android has.

    For the record, I think iOS sucks, I own a Droid X, and I love Android. However, we shouldn’t be poo-pooing on these types of articles as they serve as wake-up calls to the handset manufacturers who are too lazy to get off their asses and get us our damn updates.

    Just came across your “special” site. Wow it is the 90s all over again, let the flame wars begin. It occurs to me there are no equivalent iOS sites whose main purpose is to say the Droid blows chunks. Why is that do you suppose? Likely because those of us with an iPhone, iPad or touch don’t give a rats ass about what you Droid users do, say or think. We do admit to this, you have a very good, me too, smart phone – wise purchase, good for you. Oh, one other point regarding fragmentation, from a developers view point there is little iOS fragmentation – the iOS SDK and frameworks are that good. Now back to our regularly scheduled program ……… FLAME ON

    few problems:

    iOS 3.x, 4.x are major versions that come out once a year. There are around 5-6 updates that come out within the year, some minor fixes, some significant with new features.

    In contrast, there have only been 7 public releases of the Android OS since 2009. That’s half as many.

    And when they are released by Google, it takes between 3 months and 6 months – or more, if ever – for those updates to make it to users. That’s why only half of (active!) users are on 2.2 still, long after it was “released” last summer, while the other half is using something even older, and pretty much nobody is using 2.3 because they simply can’t get it.

    The issue isn’t Apple bundling iOS 4 versions together, it’s that iOS 4 is one “API level”. Each release of Android OS is a new API level. If an app works with iOS 4, it doesn’t matter which subversion users have, it should work. That’s not the case on Android. Lots of apps require features in 2.2, for example, something half of the installed base either hasn’t upgrade to or more likely can’t upgrade to because the carrier/vendor is standing in the way of getting it out. Like Samsung. This is a real problem for both users and developers trying to figure out what OS version to target. It’s called fragmentation.

    Fortunately, the iPhone being on Verizon will help clean things up, making the majority of Android users iPhone users, and allowing them to get OS updates the day they are released, rather than waiting for Verizon and the various licensees to get it together.

    i think the android fragmentation is a little more impacting to the owners. that small fragmentation of iphone doesn’t leave the owners missing major software upgrades like android does. not having app2sd is a major blow. these new games coming out are huge and without that feature i wouldn’t be able to have anywhere near as many apps as i do on my phone. no one should expect a 2 or 3 year old phone to do what phones do today therefore not being able to upgrade to the lates os update, but with android some phones that have come out within the past 6 months are stuck on 2.1

    Actually techcrunch is right.. because we have to compare the operating system and not the updates [which are bug fixes]. 4.0 is the latest for IOS while 2.3 is the latest for Android. 4.1, 4.2, and 4.3 are more like builds. You know like.. Frg22b. So when IOS 5 comes out.. it will compare to Ice Cream Sandwich.

    • http://mattdemers.com Matt Demers

      Exactly. iOS updates seem to have liberal sprinklings of new features instead of the major overhauls that Android feature updates do. While it seems stupid, semantics-wise, it makes a bit more sense the way it’s broken down. I mean, iOS doesn’t need to advertise “4.x” for every update because their relatively low-key; they save those marketing dollars for new phones altogether.

    This is because Google’s OS releases follow that of Linux’s tradition (Which is to have a major OS release every 6 months).

    For Google, and hence the new name everytime a new version of the OS is released, the 2.(X) is not an update for Android, but rather a complete upgrade of the OS.

    How is this true? Look at when Google makes an update to the Android market. When this happens Googles does not make that version of Android go from 2.1 to 2.2 or 2.(X) to 2.(Y). Instead the OS number stays the same, yet the update is just pushed to Android users.

    (Taking a look at what happens when Google actually changes the OS number) When Google changes the OS number, many things come with it: new features, new support, bug fixes, new name (which is the most major thing by the way), and UI changes. That is the sign of a new OS. That is why Siegler categorized the OS’s differently. To go farther, you would not say Gingerbread (which is 2.3) is an update from Froyo (which is 2.2), you would say it’s a new OS. If you would then Honeycomb would just be an update – which it is not.

    (Taking a look at Apple) When Apple pushes any update to add new support, it is classified as an update. This is known by the changes in the number following the period (i.e 3.[2] – The number 2). Whenever Apple does a fresh release of it’s OS it changes the number before the period (i.e. 3.3 -> [4].0 – The number 4)

    That is why Google’s OS’s and Apple’s OS’s are categorized differently. For an Apple user, 90% would be one the latest OS, but not everyone on the latest update.

    But nonetheless, you still should not believe everything you read.

      And thats why i love linux for about 5 months at a time. Then i hate them for a month then update and love them again.

    • PSU_DI

      I have to complete disagree.. Pick up any device that had version 1.X version of android on it, you can clearly see that its all based on the same major version of the OS. Now pick up any phone with 2.X including gingerbread, look over the look an feel over all its the same experience even though each minor revision change adds additional features. Now look at Android 3.0 Honeycomb, a major OS upgrade, its completely different from any 2.X device look feel, nothing is the same.

      Kellex is right, the TechCrunch report is very misleading. They should be looking at Android major revision changes 1.X, 2.X, 3.X. Just because Google gave it a new name doesn’t mean its a major OS upgrade.
      As for the latest version’s not being available to all phones, the truth is that in google’s eyes it is, Google releases the code to everyone since its open source, but because they don’t have a death grip on the hardware they can’t mandate that a manufacture to support hardware its no longer developing on. Thats why choosing a manufacture with a track record of doing updates is important, otherwise expect to keep exactly what you have.

  • http://twitter.com/jbernard703 Jeff Bernard

    Yes but to be fair the differences between iOS 4.1 and 4.x are rather minuscule. They are closer to the differences in Android between 2.2 and 2.2.1.

      Yeah but the differences between iOS 4.0 and Android 2.1 are rather minuscule, it was merely catching up to that :-P

  • Anonymous

    Yeah, I pointed out the same thing too.

    The only thing is that unlike iOS dot releases Android dot releases add features and really push the platform forward. The only thing I can think of that the releases after iOS 4 have added is Air Print, Air Play and miscellaneous bug fixes. Android has way larger changes.

    wonder how much the ‘rooters club’ has fostered the advancement of R&D in order that Motorola attain a cutting edge for their products. The R&D of which I refer is how we, the ‘rooters club’, use their product and express what kind of improvements we want. Sounds like Jobs has a night job at Motorola, the notion of total control maybe sinking his ship…Motorola, don’t shut this resource down.

      Kellex has a point. But the difference is most of those people that haven’t updated to the most current version of iOS because they are too lazy to the only iPhone model that can’t get the most recent updates is the 2g which is completely understandable (And no one in their right mind would argue that), and most of the Android devices that are stuck on the later versions is mostly due to the fact that the can’t or won’t be updated (Samsung I’m calling you out).

      And iOS 4.3 hasn’t been officially released yet.

      • toddicus

        I know a couple fist fulls of people at work who still have 3g models who updated theirs to 4.whatever and they complain that their phone is pretty much unusable and wish they could go back, so don’t give me the only people who can’t update are 2g people. Unless one of those .versions fixed it and they are too lazy to/or don’t know to update.

        • Anonymous

          I could have sworn there was a bug fix for the 3g owners but even still its a 3 year phone! That last longer than any Android will and thats my problem with it, and why I’m not sticking around until they come up with a fix for it.

          And p.s. unless you want innovation to stagnate the WILL be fragmentation! No one can completely prevent it but everyone criticizes Android for it because Android models to this day are still being released with 2.2 and lower.

          • toddicus

            Maybe there was, but shouldn’t have Apple warned people that it may screw with their older models, like is sometimes rumored about upcoming new Android versions? No, instead they kept quit when they knew it would screw up older phones. In these times of fast paced technology growth, fragmentation is going to be a way of life, for everyone. The blame for most of the fragmentation is not Androids fault, it’s the carriers who want to take it and put their crappy skin on top of it. And isn’t there a lawsuit against Samsung for just this reason/holding out for money, although they deny it? I’m just tired of hearing it and how Apple can do no wrong.

          • Anonymous

            Its Google’s platform not the carriers! Apple can control their UI, and hell even Microsoft is probably gonna do a good job. And yes iOS4 was buggy for the 3G but it was corrected, I mean my cousins Ally was buggy out of the box and he shipped it back and decided to wait for a webOS or an iOS device. At least if I get an iPhone I know its going to be up to date at least until my 2 yr contract is up. Fragmentation cannot be stopped your right, but Google should be in control over when a phone becomes obsolete not the carriers. Especially when most versions of Android don’t require a up to date hardware.

            Honestly I love Android and I dont mean to sound like a troll but the Android team should stop trying to point fingers at everyone else and realize that their are somethings Android could do a little better. And this is one problem I have about Android.

            Google’s Nexus phones are the “fix for it”. So what are you going to whine about next?

          • Anonymous

            Whine? that. How many carriers have the Nexus series? Two in the USA and only one if you want the N2 not only that but its on the nations 4th largest carrier. And not only that but the Nexus series is only 2 phones vs the other 3,000 other android models.

            Dude I have a Droid X but I’m dropping it as my main phone for the iP4 until Google can get a more unified experience. Maybe you should just get that little green android d*** out of your mouth for once.

          • Anonymous

            Your reasoning is illogical. You would get rid of your Droid X for the iPhone because it’s not the same as every other android phone in existence? Lets ignore the fact that Motorola is and has actually updated the Droid X for a moment. You would rather give up getting large android updates that add lots of functionality, UI changes, etc. in exchange for the tiny bug fix updates that the iPhone gets throughout the year in the off chance that your android manufacturer chooses to stop updating your phone a year from now? Absolutely hilarious. So tell me, what will you get out of those updates on the iPhone besides the occasional functionality Apple adds in that Android already has?

            Maybe you should use your brain for once.

          • Anonymous

            First off I don’t need reasoning to prefer one OS to another its MY personal choice. Secondly the X is a great phone don’t get me wrong but don’t sit there and pretend that everyone who doesn’t have a Nexus device doesn’t set around thinking about whether or not their phone will be updated after a new version is released. 2.3 has been out for a solid month and how many phones have it? Only 1 and even the N2 doesn’t have the official version and thena month after 2.3 we learn that honeycomb will be coming out soon after with ice cream sandwhich right on its tail! And not only that but if the Droid X2 comes out this spring like its rumored to that will give Moto even less of a reason to keep up!

            And the only thing I’m truely gonna miss from Android feature wise is Google Maps. And skymap but that’s it! What other feature does my X have that the iP4 doesn’t right now? Flash? I hardly use it but iOS has Skyfire now. A removable battery? I can live without.

            I am using my brain clearly at least more than you are because next year this time your gonna be stuck with a phone that’s 10 versions behind. Until Verizon gets a Nexus phone I wont be getting another Android phone.

            And on top of everything I HATE motoblur!

          • Anonymous

            So essentially your impatient and hate your phone just because you stew on the fact that there’s a newer version of android it’s not running. Gotcha. You would rather have an iphone so you don’t have to think about not getting updates, regardless that you get more out of android updates than you do for the iPhone. Sorry, but that’s illogical. If your an iPhone fanboy just admit as much.

            Here’s a bit of news for you, every android phone has different hardware and is set up a little differently, especially with the functionality that some OEMs add in like Moto’s exchange features. This means that when a new version of android gets released they have to port all their custom code and drivers to it and then test it extensively to make sure there are no bugs; this takes time, certainly more than a month. I guarantee the Droid X will get the 2.3 update, it just may take a few months. In the mean time, you’re welcome to load up a custom 2.3 rom like CM7 if you just can’t wait.

            “I am using my brain clearly at least more than you are because next year this time your gonna be stuck with a phone that’s 10 versions behind.”

            Really? You have a glass ball and can see the future? It must be broken then because I have a Droid, this time next year I’ll probably be using whatever new highness is available running the latest version of android. I also don’t regret buying my Droid at all.

            “And on top of everything I HATE motoblur!”

            I already told you you can run custom roms and with all the launchers on the market Blur is hardly something to whine about.

          • Anonymous

            Yes I am very impatient. Why do I have to wait a gut wrenching 5 months (I did for the OG Droid) to get the newest version of android? Even for a stock phone! I know all about custom ROMs but my whole point is o shouldn’t have to hack my phone to bring it up to speed. And I’m currently using the Gingerbread launcher wight the keyboard as well. I hope your not mistaking me for a iPhone fanboy because I’m not. I got the OG Droid at launch and paid full retail for the X nd its a gray phone and I love android. But I think Google can put their foot down anytime they plead about the updates but they just aren’t. Hell even Microsoft isn’t going to let the manufacturerers walk all over their OS.

            Maybe I should have stated this earlier by I plan on getting another Android just when a good stock phone comes to Verizon ill sell my X and pick it up. But until then iP4 is the way to go for me its smooth, beautiful software & hardware the music player is the best in the game (not impressed with the gingerbread music player the colors just look dumb) nd I’m a music type of Guy, it has a front facing cam so I mean I don’t think I’m downgrading at all and if the iP5 comes this summer ill pick it up too. And you can best believe its gonna come nd fight back against the dual cores and maybe 4G

            Your argument still makes absolutely no sense to me but your perfectly within your right to get an iPhone if that’s what you prefer, updates are certainly not why I would get an iPhone though.

            I don’t think you understand the complexities and variations in the two platforms. Google will never take control of android as that goes against all that they stand for. Likewise, updates will always take months to implement because of technical reasons and the fact that unlike the iPhone, Google makes the OS, not the OEMs. Apple has the luxury of a couple very similar devices that only they manufacturer so they don’t have to announce an update until it’s ready, that makes it look like they’re fast in implementation when in fact they had also tested that update for months before announcing and releasing it. In Microsoft’s case they’ve been talking about the upcoming update for a few months now and it has yet to materialize nor have they committed to a release date so the benefits to that closed system have yet to be determined.

            Updates are not the reason i want an iPhone.

            But why would i want to buy a product from someone when keeping my hardware up to date is “against all that they stand for”? That’s what I mean by Google putting their foot down. And also by Google not being able to put their foot down they allow service providers to remove features android has under its belt anyways i.e. Wifi tethering. And as for your argument against Microsoft, the same can be said for Google they’ve been talking about Gingerbread for ages but is it on your phone? Have you even heard a rumor of when your phones going to get it? Probably not. But the difference between wp7 and Android is that when that update finally does come out all wp7 devices will be able to update when Microsoft says so. Compared to when Google, Verizon, Sprint, At&t, T-Mobile, Motorola, HTC, and Samsung all have to say so for Android.

            When Google allowed the manufacturers to sling their Motoblur bs onto thier OS that was their fault and no one elses.

            yeah the bashing is a little over the top. and i bet you the majority of these guys own an ipod touch also.

            why does everyone reference the ipod touch? Are you guys really that disconnected with reality? I know literally ONE person with a ipod touch. I know about 5 with iphones, two with ipads, and just about everyone has some form of ipod – just not the touch model. heck, i’ve even got a 5th gen. ipod, my gf has the ip4 and a nano…

          I completely agree. The iPhone bashing is out of control. What about us who just come here to keep up to date on all of the android news even though we own an iPhone. We are clearly just as interested as you or we wouldn’t come here. We just choose what suits our uses better, and that is the iPhone.

            It’s not “out of control”. This is a Droid related site. You don’t see fandroids going to Apple Insider raising their hands and saying “Stop the Android bashing” with positive results. You know Kellex didn’t start this banter. It’s just the response to an article with some sloppy number crunching. Be a man and keep your emotional guard up a little if you’re in the minority.

            I just want everyone to play nice.

            Me too but it’s a pipe dream when it comes to apple v anyone. Sort of loses its momentum right out of the gate every time Steve Jobs talks about his competitors. That guy does NOT PLAY NICE…but I agree with you. I wish it wasn’t that way, it just is. But the good news is competition breeds innovation and, in general, you’ll be able to pay less for your beloved ios device of choice and it will keep trying to be better than android. So be thankful — it will make your favorite products better, guaranteed.

          This is a DROID site. Tech Crunch is a TECH site. Big difference.

          You know what’s a bit much, the Apple propaganda. There are a million sites that praise Apple, don’t like the one or two sites that do not, than there are plenty of other options for you.

          I bet you there is…

        I really wish you wouldn’t post any news related to Apple, by doing so you just play into their propaganda machine. It’s better to ignore it and their fanatics entirely.

        • Tyler Durden

          That’s a little too much bud. I mean, do you really have to sound like an android geek loving idiot? We know you like android but shoot stop acting like your married to one. <3

            I seriously am starting to believe Android is his significant other.

            Did I mention anything about android? This is why you zealots are such airheads, you’re completely incapable of comprehending that some people are just not fanboys, instead you think if I don’t like Apple I MUST be a “fandroid”. News flash dipshits! I like android, webos, Meego, WP7 and even iOS. What I hate is Apple because of their shitty ethics and propaganda crap, but what I really hate are you mindless nimcompoops.

        Is that what you really want? There’s probably better sites for you to go to for that….I’m just saying.
