Luu attributes the malaise to a combination of three possible factors; Android growth is slowing down, Android device turnover is slowing down and that fewer devices are receiving updates. This is perhaps one of the reasons for the regular malware attacks on Android phones, since the older operating systems are not as robust in terms of security, data encryption and handling malware. Judging from the graph he created, Luu believes there are now over 1 billion active Android devices that are at least two years out of date. The interesting part is that this 0.3 percent gives us a perspective about how lax the rollout for latest updates for Android-powered smartphones is across the market. Also, this means that low internal storage devices - midrange and budget phones - will still have to run Android Oreo to take advantage of this upcoming feature. While there is some hope that Google has started on the long road to recover with Android 8.0, it will be years before Google comes close to catching Apple, providing it ever does.
