I assume that the top right sphere is using triangles, but is there a reason why it looks more made of quadrilaterals instead? Is that just how it works out?

I think the reason has to do with the triangulation of the sphere. Perhaps it just happens to be that sphere is triangulated in a way such that every pair of adjacent triangles that forms a quadrilateral is assigned the same shade.
