Which Android Version Are You Running?


Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread. Are you feeling hungry yet? Android’s codenames make each version tastier than the last, but as we all know those updates don’t always find their way to handsets as quickly as we’d like. This has left a platform that many call fragmented, a problem that has long been pointed to by developers as one of the main reasons they feel hesitant about creating games and apps for Android devices. Google has defended the platform, shying away from using terms like fragmentation and insisting on calling handsets with older versions of Android “legacy” devices, but the fact remains that not every handset is on a level playing field at the OS level.

Sure, Google releases their own statistics quite regularly giving a top-down look at the breakup of Android OS versions among devices, but anticipation for yet another update at Google I/O — rumored to go under codename Ice Cream — has us itching to run a poll of our own. So sound off below and let us know the Android version you are currently running on your handset — stock, ROM, or otherwise. (Try to only answer Honeycomb if it your primary Android OS).

  8. Thanks Phandroid for making this poll. I thought it would be cool to see what everyone was running.

  9. 2.3 and 3.0

    CM7 – DROID Incredible

    Stock – XOOM.

    1. Well well well, if it isn’t the infamous AT&T facebook spammer himself.

  10. Myn’s Warm on the EVO (Froyo)

  11. TW on my Vibrant

  12. CM7 Gingerbread on Hero

  13. Thats not horribly fragmented! Froyo is just as good as gingerbread anyway the differences are not huge it was nothing like eclair to froyo. If the lg ally had 2.3 ported but there were no roms i would not do it. Big deal.

    1. I agree. The differences between Froyo & Gingerbread are hardly noticeable.

      1. except the interface, but if you don’t run pure/vanilla android you wont notice any difference.

  14. CM7 on my Droid- Gingerbread

  15. Gingerbread Stock Rom on my SGS, still need some fixing & tweaking though…

  16. LGB1.7 on my OG Droid

  17. Samsung Captivate, haven’t run FroYo in quite a while. Gingerbread all the way. 100% stable and incredibly fast. :)

  18. Running Inspired Saga 1.1.1 on my rooted Inspire 4G (gingerbread).

  19. SS 5.2 on my D1 and stock HC on my Iconia A500

  20. Just upgraded my DX to GB this morning, waiting on my Transformer for some Honeycomb action!

  21. Gingerbread on my Nexus One. With Wifi turned off as enabling it makes the phone reboot over and over again!!! I’ve factory resetted twice and same problem… so I am HOBBLING until I get a new phone.

    The S2 is a contender…but what’s with the iPhone-type button!!!!!??? I initially preferred the HTC Sensation but I would have expected more from a ‘flagship’ HTC phone and the initial benchmarks are POOR! dammit.

    1. Sorry, was thinking about the wrong phone.

    2. Incredible and the N1 are basically the same hardware. The Inc kernals had an issue with wifi sleep in gingerbread causing reboots. Maybe play with that, might be a fix for you. Or try a different kernal all together, if you still get the problem it is most likely the hardware, which would then require to get a new phone. But try and save your N1. Dont let anyone tell you its obsolete yet! Its not!

  22. I’m running Gingerbread via CM7 on my OG Droid. Started off with some major bugs, but I tweaked a few settings and it seems to be working well for now.

    Battery life is OUTSTANDING!

    1. i would like to know what settings you tweaked. I dont have to many problems but my battery is not all that great and i was doing a lot of data intesive things

      1. I don’t know what tweaks he applied but there is an app called AutoKiller Memory Optimizer that has advanced root-only tweaks in it’s settings. When I enabled the battery life tweaks it got better. Make sure your using the latest version of CM7 too, some of the initial releases were pretty buggy.

        1. When I used AutoKiller Memory Optimizer I immediately noticed a more responsive and faster phone yet I also found out it consistently killed my texting app (causing me to not get a lot of texts) and anything else I’m using (navigation while driving, music, browser, etc.) and it became a real pain in the ass so I eventually had to remove it since I didn’t know how to tweak it properly.

          OG Droid CM7

          1. CM7 on OGDroid is a beast. That phone is starting to feel laggy but battery life is crazy long.

      2. I have cm7 on nightly 28 running savagedzen 2.0 cfs havs SBC kernel with savagedzen governer. Best battery combo yet for me. No task killer, and I noticed launcherpro runs smoother than adw on this profile. Also flashed with amon RA recovery. I am on a evo so not sure what phone you have and what combos work well but this has been the best for me.

  23. Actually just stepped back to 2.2.2 with a new G2X. Would have held onto to my Nexus One and 2.3.3 but the power button stopped working altogether and I was already on the second one with that same issue. “Vanilla” OS is definitely a major draw for me.

  24. CM7 (Gingerbread) on my N1. Viva le Cyanogen!

  25. CM7 on my N1, 2.2 on my tab, 2.2 on my Vibrant, 2.2 on my G1.

    What poor bastard is still on 1.5?

  33. MIUI Gingerbread on dInc

    I’m getting android 2.3 gingerbread with HTC sense 3.0.0 or 2.1. I don’t know after gingerbread, if it is upgradable to ice cream (my HTC desire).

  38. Running froyo but not for long. Waiting on CM7 for G2X!

  40. ZTE Blade: 2.3.3 (CM7)

    Xoom Wifi: 3.0.1 (Stock)

  41. Gots my Froyo on with a CM6 port on my Motorola Cliq overclocked to 748mhz. Better than 512mhz if ya ask me. Tried another 2.3 Gingy CM7 port but was too herky jerky on my phone. Working on getting the G2x in a week! :D

  42. MyTouch Slide running CM7 (2.3.3). Works like a dream. The only reason I ever run stock is while waiting for CM to be released for a device. Next stop: HTC Sensation!

  43. Leaked Gingerbread for Droid X. Sadly decided to stay on the unrooted version :(

  44. Virus’s GengerSense Desire S base. Gingerbread 2.3.3 with Sense 2.1 at the moment. Usually CM7 though.

  55. I’m running Pete’s “Stock” Gingerbread 2.3.3 (GPA14) on my OG Droid and it runs better now than when I bought it the week the OG was released…

  56. It’s funny how Gingerbread is in 2nd place when there are only 2 phones in the US that have it officially. …gotcha love CM7!

    -CM7 on my Evo

    1. I bet a substantial number of people with those two phones are running CM7 anyways.

  57. This poll SHOULD have been what version are you currently running on your device that you received via an OTA update and not rooted users. We all know there are versions of Gingerbread floating around that don’t have full functionality, and I guarantee some of the almost 900 people that CLAIM they’re on Gingerbread are running half baked versions. (get it….”half ba….oh never mind!) You get the point though!

    1. Everything on my phone works perfectly. Faster than ever ,better battery life, and the sense is also different. I would not trade my phone in for anything on the market today, or tomorrow. Fresh EVO is awesome. Try it before just speculating that our phones are running like crap.

    2. if its 2.3 its gingerbread. Its all pulled from the source, which is available to all. Granted some might have a different bake but dont say the core is not there. thats just not true.

  58. stock froyo on my incredible

  59. Running Fresh EVO gingerbread makes a huge improvement. My phone is running so fine I’m not upgrading for a long time.

  60. Running 2.3.3 on my Droid X and I’m quite satisfied with it. None of these new phones are tempting me for now. Also, I would have a 3.01 Asus Transformer except that it’s near impossible to get right now…

  61. Froyo. I’m really thinking about getting the Gingerbread leak though.

    1. do it, google slayed the battery drain problem with the update from froyo to GB. you wont be sorry

  62. Vanilla (only Acer Contacts and Acer Dialer) 2.2.2 on Acer Liquid A1. Loving it.

  63. HTC Inspire. 2.2.1 Froyo

  64. Darkys rom 2.3.3 runs great on my captivate

  65. Wow almost no Erisii here… 2.3.3 Tazz Gingerbread here. HTC Eris ftw!!

  72. CM7 On my legend

  73. Unofficial 2.2 on my Samsung Moment thanks to SDX! The devs are already hard at work on 2.3, even though Sprint/Samsung left us with 2.1. Many many thanks to the dev community!

  74. Froyo of course. ATRIX 4G. And not too many hand sets have Gingerbread or Honeycomb Honeycomb only for TABLETS

  75. I’m running Jellybean. Not much of a difference from Ice Cream, but eh, it has it’s positives. Nothing but small incremental increases folks, no one should be getting there hopes up.

  76. running CM7 on my G2. very smooth!!

  77. Froyo 2.2 on my Galaxy S. No complaints, here, but I am definitely looking forward to getting Gingerbread on this sucker. Ice Cream Sandwich? That’s just a wet dream, at this stage in the game.

    Judging from this poll, so far, the Android platform really doesn’t seem to be THAT fragmented.
