What Android Firmware do you have?

<body><p>Just wondering how many people are updated to the latest Android Firmware on their devices. I know a lot of company don't bother with keeping their devices up to date or release their own firmware as fast as google. This is just to see how many people in the android community have access to the latest firmwares for their devices. Its frustrating to see the latest things out there and your device doesn't have access to it. </p></body>

    I have 3 phones.. 2 of them are on 6.  the other one is on 5 (because of storage issues mainly)

    wow seems so like so far we mostly have the newer phones that have access to the newer firmware. Hopefully google can make a way to get updates out to all phones like iOS

    Hardware must support the newer firmware. There are configurations out there especially with MediaTek chipsets that do not update drivers for the newer Android versions.

    Other. Running Android N Preview 3. Native multitasking/split screen is a must on a larger screen device, with a good balance on display scaling.

    ZTE AXON Pro (A1P) Running Marshmallow

  • I'm rocking the Moto G 3rd gen running Marshmallow and I like the many features it brings such as Doze. Knowing my phone will kill background tasks when it's in sleep mode is great.

  • ericwithcheeseericwithcheese Seattle, WAPosts: 43

    The Galaxy phone I had was running 6.0.1, my current ZMAX 2 has 5.1.

  • Lolipop on my 2014 moto x.

    I've been on N Preview since day 1 on my Nexus 6P. I always like to be on the latest and I like to beta test. My hope is that with the light skin ZTE uses they will be able to push updates quicker. Another benefit of having a near stock version of Android on their phone.

    I'm not sure why that was directed to me.  Did I say something contrary to that?

  • DoppelgangerDDoppelgangerD Master Of Ceremonies United StatesPosts: 1,847 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭✭
