Thursday Poll: What Version of Android is Your Phone Currently Running?

Each month, the Android team updates their OS distribution charts to show the percentages of users running specific versions. In the most recent, we saw Ice Cream Sandwich jump up to over 10% for the first time, but the clear leader in the clubhouse remains Gingerbread after many months. Jelly Bean has yet to make an appearance on the chart which makes sense, since it has not officially been released yet. The August numbers will likely include it.

Until then, we thought we would ask our community, so that we can see what our numbers look like. I get this feeling that the majority is not going to be Gingerbread and will likely be a mix of ICS and Jelly Bean.

    Anyone running JellyBean on the T’Bolt yet?

  • James Depew

    Droid RAZR on ICS and Transformer EeePad TF101 on ICS. Can’t wait for my Nexus 7 with JB to arrive; it should fit in the white coat pocket perfectly!

  • DinoRick

    CM9 on Droid 3 (Yes, Motorola, smooth ICS on the Droid 3 :p)
    getting S3 next week though (where are those JB roms <.<)

  • WalkerNA

    Sadly, I will probably never get to experience it on my Droid Charge. I’ll probably have to wait until I can afford a new phone w/o the upgrade pricing so that I can retain my unlimited data.

  • Before having voted in the poll, it said I had already voted for Gingerbread. So I went back to the main Droid Life page to see if I could vote from there, and it said I had already voted for ICS. I then clicked on the comments link to get back into the post, and it said that I hadn’t yet voted. So I voted for Jelly Bean, the OS I am running.

    This happens to me pretty regularly with the polls. I’m using Chrome on a MBA running Lion.

  • John Wildman

    I long for the day when we don’t have to do these polls because everyone is running the newest version. Doubt it is that easy, but a guy can dream

  • GawkerRedesignSucks

    I’m on Jelly Bean and I freaking love it! Thank you, my beautiful Galaxy Nexus!

  • Michael Caffey

    i dont know anymore….. ha went from d1, d2 , x2. been rooted since day one, and now things have gone so fast i dont even know where i am anymore!

  • schwinn8

    Froyo on my “ancient” OG Droid. None of the other ROMS seem to run reliably and quickly as Project Elite 4.2. I tried GB and went back. Simply put, there is really no feature in GB that I “need”… so I stayed back.

    Waiting for my SGS3 to arrive from preorder, so I will be on ICS soon.

  • Chris Wilkey

    I was on on “pure” JB until yesterday. Used it for about 2 weeks. Its not quite ready yet and the CM9 RC1 is so smooth… Also, I have grown dependent on lightflow and it hasn’t been fixed yet for JB.

  • Jelly Bean at 29%? Come on people, let’s be honest.

    • PSU_DI

      If I had to guess a large portion of users on the site own the Galaxy Nexus and then a large amount of those people have switched over to the stock Jelly Bean roms that were ported last week. I’ve been on JB for 2 weeks and I don’t think I could go back to ICS anymore, I’d miss the performance and notifications in JB too much

  • eriher

    Jelly Bean master race reporting in. It’s fantastic,

  • oh i forgot i’m running ICS on my tmo springboard

  • i’ve been running JB on my Galxy nexus but stock no mods or custom kernels and haven’t have one single issue except app compatibility but i went thru that with with ICS i know soon the apps will up date for it some have already
    been using jdkorelipse V2 not gonna bother with V3 when everything is running perfect and might just stay on this since that crap with apple and google doing a workaround

  • ICS on my Xoom 4G and ICS leak on my DROID Bionic. Runs great on both, only wish is a color correct on weather bug, or color change option in the notification weather preview.

  • Glen

    I go from Droid 2 Gingerbread today to SGS 3 ICS Monday. (Also have ICS on TPrime.)

  • dbam987

    Google and Microsoft are innovating now, while Apple gets a bit rotten.

  • dbam987

    I’d really love it if the RAZR gets a JB update from Motorola/Verizon. ICS is epic already, but now I want Jelly Beans to top it with.

  • Trueblue711

    Wow…. 30% on Jelly Bean already? #YouKnowYoureOnaTechSiteWhen

    • Heartless12


    • Well it’s such an easy upgrade…

      • Only if you have a phone that it has a leak/port

  • Edward

    How can I get Jelly Bean on my Droid RAZR MAXX

  • Nazzi_Muhammad

    Google has some dumb-ass names for these versions of Android. Makes you feel like you’re 2 freakin years old.

  • Sobr0801

    Rezound on ics

  • br_hermon

    I am seriously impressed with the number of people on JB. I expected a lot but not that many. Cheers to all the dev community! 🙂

  • JPose

    Gingerbread. Vintage!

  • my R2D2 is still on GB, doesnt look like it will even get any more love. oh well still have a year left before a new phone.

    • CapnShiner

      Don’t forget that if you wait and take a subsidized upgrade, you lose unlimited data and any special promos you have. It may not be worth the discount, in which case you don’t have to wait unless you can’t afford it yet.

  • kixofmyg0t

    All of my devices are running ICS.

    Droid X -CM9
    Droid 2 Global -CM9
    Droid 3 -CM9
    Atrix -CM9
    Xoom -EoS V2.0
    Bionic- Gummy

  • gkinsella2

    I’ll vote tomorrow when I have my brand new GS3 in hand!

    • achaff86

      Right now I have Jelly Bean on my gnex but tomorrow i’ll be back to ICS with my gs3!!!

  • Mike

    Jelly bean for my Galaxy Nexus and Ice Cream Sandwhich for my GTab2 7. Couldn’t be happier with Androd.

  • Tatsuo

    whats up with these polls? First time i’ve ever got on DL today, never saw this poll and it says I already voted… with Jelly Bean. no i didnt! weird.

  • Nakrohtap

    Clearly, this is skewed by only the geeks that read this blog. Either way, it’s a good sign for JB! If this poll went out to everyone who owns an Android phone, another selection would need to be added for “Huh?”

  • Guest

    Wow! 48% of the people are using ICS. (Even though only 9% of them really are)
    What a great survey.

    • ericl5112

      I highly doubt many people are lying. Just a lot of people with GNex’s, or rom flashers.

    • OhAaron

      You do realize this is an Android enthusiast website, right? It’s very possible that most of us are running phones with recent versions of Android.

    • PC_Tool

      Do you actually think the folks visiting this site don’t know how (or want) to flash an ICS phone? Do you honestly think many of them bought phones that didn’t have decent dev support?


      I’m surprised it’s not higher….though that’s largely due to JB, I am sure.

    • Greg Smith

      My guess is that the ICS stats went up significantly when the Razr/Razr Maxx OTA update finally rolled out. That got my wife’s phone on ICS. But I just went from AOKP M5 to Vicious JB V3 on my Verizon Gnex

  • droidbeat

    I want jb. But I want flash.

    • TrojanFan

      I’m running flash on JB just fine… no issues to date. So don’t let that stop you.

    • TylerCameron

      The only thing to use flash for is porn and ads.

  • nightscout13

    I tried rubbing unsalted butter on my ICS Gnex, but project butter did not install.

    • CapnShiner

      Have you tried the salted kind? What about I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter?

      • nightscout13

        should I warm it up first? (the butter)

        • CapnShiner

          Try both ways

  • nightscout13

    WOW 31% running JB? that’s good…..

  • ddevito

    I’ve got the jelly belly! Team Vicious V2.

  • Kyle Cummings

    A better question should be, “What version of Android SHOULD your phone be running?”.

  • Alan Chavez

    I’m running Froyo but that’s only because I lost my thunderbolt this past weekend but since I pre ordered my SGSIII I didn’t wanna waste an insurance claim on the piece of crap TB. Anyway, Another case where the OG Droid comes to the rescue!!!

    • heh, I still have my TB. About to be replaced by a GNex sometime tomorrow. I know how you feel, im not too happy with my Tbolt either.

      • Alan Chavez

        Yeah, mine was running a BAMF rom with sense 3.0 and battery life was still crappy. I guess the only thing I miss about it is the LTE tethering.

        • decided to try the liquid smooth rom on my TBolt last night to give it one last hurrah. It’s not bad, the rom works very smoothly and everything is quick and snappy. It’s making the wait a little more bearable.

      • achaff86

        I didn’t like my TB I was glad I got rid of it and got the galaxy nexus!! But tomorrow i’ll have the gs3 …. tomorrow tomorrow I love ya tomorrow your only a day away LOL

  • Fattie McDoogles

    ICS on Rezound, RAZR MAXX and GNex (my mom borrowed it the Sunday before JB came out)
