Every month brings new Google Android distribution figures. In it we can see which Android versions are still in circulation. For developers, these figures are useful to know which version numbers they should take into account when making their applications.

Android Figures
There are roughly speaking two versions of Android, the Google Play Store and without Google’s application store. Of course these figures only include devices that contain the Google Play Store, the vast majority of Android devices on the market. Previously, all devices that the Google Play Store (or Android Market) and had included an internet connection in the distribution figures. These devices automatically send a message to the Google servers to let them know that they are there and to ask whether the Play Store, for example. Updated As of last month, only counting smartphones and tablets that actually open the Google Play Store.

Current figures
The distribution released today so unfortunately we can not compare well with those of previous months. We see at least that of the active devices now more than 55% running on Android 4.0 or higher. Nearly 40% of active devices running on Android 2.3, a good reason for developers to this Android version still continue to support even in new applications.

The distribution figures show also what screen sizes and resolutions are widely used in Android. The data collected is shown in the table and charts below. The majority of the units (about 37.3%) appears to be in terms of screen that is similar to the Samsung Galaxy S II device: a “normal” screen size and a hdpi’ resolution. We can also see in the table that 1.3% of the units has a full HD resolution. These are for example the HTC One, Galaxy S4 and Sony Xperia Z
