"This is something we think about a lot," said Dave Burke, engineering director for the Android platform. "And we're working internally to streamline the development process and make the software more layered."Fragmentation has been a major problem for Google Android almost since the beginning as the company quickly rolled out one software release after another. Device makers and the wireless operators that sell smartphones and tablets to consumers haven't been able to keep up. This means it can take several months for some devices to get new updates, and others don't get new software refreshes at all.
As result, there are millions of devices still running Android 2.2 Froyo and 2.3 Gingerbread, Google initially introduced those versions in May and December 2010, and Google has significantly altered Android programming interfaces since then, Burke said that by layering software, chipmakers and device makers will be able to make updates and tweak different the original dual layer protective case for iphone xr areas of the software more quickly, speeding up device updates, He also said that the company is trying to better understand the many variations of hardware using Android..

"We're trying to make Android more efficient so that even entry-level smartphones can use the software," he said. Matias Duarte, Google's director of the Android user experience, also pointed to the fact that Google and Samsung will offer the new Galaxy S4 with the "pure" Android experience. In other words, this particular phone doesn't have any of the Samsung TouchWiz software on top of Android, which might have to be modified when new releases of Android come out.
