Android Fragmentation Diagrams
Fragmentation is a frequently debated subjected when it comes to Android handsets. There’s huge fragmentation when it comes to both the range of devices available and the version of the operating system that said devices run.
Fragmentation does of course come with its pros and cons, which are outlined in this OpenSignal article which has the accompanying diagrams and their data set. This is a really nice way to visualise the situation and shows just how vast the range of Android handsets is.
Below are screenshots of a couple of the diagrams. There are more available on the OpenSignal website and they’re interactive so be sure to check it out. There are visualisations for brand, device and OS fragmentation, as well as a comparison to the fragmentation of iOS, which is much lower.
