    I know what they mean, but: I run an immutable Linux distro on my phone that is maintained by Google. I’m sure more than 0.01% of Europe does the same.

    I guess “FLOSS phone” doesn’t have the same ring to it as “Linux phone”

      Bad statistics? When the percentages are that low, the polling rates are probably trash, and the error bars are probably huge.

      There were some really really cheap mobile phones made specifically for economically disadvantaged countries. India had a few as well.

      Additionally Sanctions sometimes play a role - GApps don’t work everywhere.

    Weird that anyone would think statcounter could have numbers so precise as to make that meaningful. The (slightly) more interesting question is: Out of all the linux/android phones, how many of them have Google Play installed?
