That number narrowly edges out the second most-applied model of Android, 6. Marshmallow (produced in 2015), which nevertheless stands at 28.1 p.c. As for Google’s latest 8. Oreo update produced final tumble? Adoption comes in at just 1.1 p.c of Android devices, leaving it in a distant sixth location.
