On the other hand, Xiaomi has developed a big profit in its global market share. This year, Xiaomi holds the third position when it comes to brand popularity. Unfortunately, the mobile phones of Google are becoming unpopular among the users. It is maybe due to our readership has outpaced in markets where the phones of Google are becoming less popular than other brands.
For actual phone models, we have a wide variety in our results in order to insert them into a graph. Individual devices hardly scrape 1% each nowadays. However, there are some notable devices that fall under the top 25. Apple’s iPhone and iPad hold up the top two places, accounting for 18.6% and 15.5% of all the devices, respectively. However, Apple doesn’t have enough products that can allow us to part them into small specific models. So, we cannot say if you are here to glisten your plushy iPhone 12 or looking for a shiny android in replacement of your old iPhone 6.

Each time we look into our reader’s insights, you people have been moved ahead of the typical android update curve. As you folks are tech bugs and clearly would love to use the latest and most ingenious security patches installed. Well done, excellent reader.
To be precise, 30% of you are currently running android 11, which is a piece of great news from the security viewpoint. A slightly further 37.7% are currently running a bit older android 10, which is not ideal but pretty good. It’s because a few OEMs are pretty slow in order to update their devices and eventually drop support.
Also, some of you are still on android 9, which is an outdated OS version and not good from a security standpoint. Sadly, Google does not update its android distribution numbers anymore, even via android studio. Well, there is a static showing that the update situation is improving year on year among our wonderful tech-savvy readers. A few years back, only 13.5% of you were on the latest android version of that time named nougat. Our stats of 2019 showed an effective improvement as 18% of folks moved to the android version 9.0 pie, and now we are approximately 29.8% on android 11.

However, mobile is the most favorite device to browse our blogs, but many of you still use a PC to perform browsing. There is a slight preference for windows among PCs, which prominently out muscles Mac, Chromebook, and other Linux users.
Interestingly, 0.2% of users have visited our blogs using a Tizen-powered device. I am hoping that their Samsung smart fridge has performed this visit. Even funnier or rather impressive one out of every 5,000 folks still enjoying a Blackberry. Hoping that you folks have got to learn a bit more about your consociate awesome readers.
