CPU-Z Android

The CPU-Z Android app is now available as a free download in the Google Play Store and allows you to have better knowledge of what’s inside your smartphone or tablet in terms of specs.

CPU-Z is one of the most well-known names out there when it comes to PC apps that can show you hardware data for your desktop or notebook. More importantly, it does so in a very simple fashion, accessible even to those without a technical background.

Exactly the same thing can be said about the recently released CPU-Z Android app, which provides you, as seen in the screenshots above, with a no-frills way of seeing what System-on-a-Chip (SoC) is inside your mobile device. The app, which is still in beta version, has a very easy to use tabbed interface, with each tab providing you with a set of data.

So, you have SoC, System, Battery and Sensors tabs, each one of them presenting specific information, such as the CPU Architecture, number of cores and their current state, available RAM or battery state. You can even get current sensor readings, if that’s of interest to you. You can, of course, get this information from other apps, too, but CPU-Z has it displayed in a very simple way.

All in all, the CPU-Z Android app brings the strengths of the PC version to Android users.
