Android Device Screen Sizes and Densities

This article provides data about the relative number of active devices that have a particular screen configuration, defined by a combination of screen size and density. To simplify the way that you design your user interfaces for different screen configurations, Android divides the range of actual screen sizes and densities into:

  • A set of four generalized sizes: small, normal, large, and xlarge
  • A set of four generalized densities: ldpi (low), mdpi (medium), hdpi (high), and xhdpi (extra high)

For information about how you can support multiple screen configurations in your application, see Supporting Multiple Screens.

Note: This data is based on the number of Android devices that have accessed Google Play within a 7-day period ending on the data collection date noted below.

ldpi mdpi hdpi xhdpi
small 1.7% 1.0%
normal 0.4% 11% 50.1% 25.1%
large 0.1% 2.4% 3.6%
xlarge 4.6%

Data collected during a 7-day period ending on October 1, 2012
