According to a report by Android Headlines, the DeviceAtlas data is drawn from "traffic to tens of thousands of sites". The report also revealed a list of the most used Android chipset vendors and most commonly used RAM amounts among others.

Qualcomm was found to be the most used chipset vendor, while Samsung's Exynos, Huawei's Kirin and MediaTek filled in the numbers. Qualcomm showed its dominance in a number of key smartphone markets including the US, UK and a number of European countries, although Samsung did run a close second in certain markets like Russia, Malaysia and Canada.

Among Qualcomm's wide range of Snapdragon processors, the Snapdragon 410 was found to be the most widely used chipset along with Samsung's Exynos 7420. There were surpises in the RAM segment though, as despite a trend in increasing RAM across Android smartphone segments, the most commonly used RAM amount was found to be 1 and 2 GB.
