[GizPoll of the Week] Has Your Phone Received Android Oreo Update?


From our last week poll, 64% of our voters prefer to have the periscope design either because they hate the notch or they just need something new. The periscope design was newly introduced by vivo Find X where the camera and other sensors are lodged in a slide-up periscope so that the display can have a higher screen-to-body ratio. However, 22% does not trust the durability of the periscope and opted for the notch design while 14% don’t really care.

Today, we are looking at the software version on our smartphones. Two years ago, Android 6.0 Marshmallow was quite common amongst many smartphones but today, we have Android 7.0 Nougat, Android 8.0 Oreo as well as the upcoming Android P. Although, we now have access to the first Android P developer preview, less than 6% of Android’s smartphones run on Android 8.0 or 8.1 Oreo.

As of now, the likes of Samsung, Xiaomi, Huawei, LG, HTC and other OEMs are releasing Android Oreo for their devices and in some cases, very old smartphones. However, it is a little weird to talk about Android P when so little smartphones use the current Android Oreo. Take iOS 11 for example, a whopping 81% of Apple devices run on iOS 11 before the company recently released iOS 12. It will make more sense if Android follows the same trend

So, is your smartphone running Android Oreo, or are you still anticipating? Cast your vote in the poll below, and if you have more to say, let us know in the comments.
