You may have been curious on some occasion to know what hardware mount your phone. Know which processor is integrated, if it is ARM, ARM64 or x86, the processor model, the temperature of the battery or the RAM. Data that can be easily known just by installing an app.

In this case just take a walk with the Google Play Store and we will see how the application store offers different alternatives. As a general rule, each one has its favorites and that is why we are going to list the five that in this editor’s opinion are the most interesting. They are not the only ones of course, but perhaps they are the most representative.



One of the classics that also offers an application that also allows you to know the hardware that assembles our computer. U.S we will only look at mobile phones. AIDA64 becomes the heir application of Everest and AIDA32.

The application is more than complete and we can download it from the Google Play Store. It is a more than complete application that offers information about system, CPU, phone screen … the list is very extensive and appears separated by tabs to facilitate access to all the data.



DevCheck is available on the Google Play Store. An app with a nice design based on Material Design with which it achieves a very friendly interface. DevCheck stands out because it offers information in real time about the components of our phone.

When we install it, we can know the frequency at which each of the cores of our SoC are working, the temperature of the CPU and the SoC, the frequency at which the GPU is working, the level and temperature of the battery, the total and free RAM memory … the list is very extensive and the best of all is that it is another free application.

Droid Hardware Info

Droid Info

Droid Info is an app that we can download from this link on the Google Play Store. It is an application that provides clear information about the hardware and in general, especially what is hidden inside our phone and for this it uses a fairly classic interface and that. yes, not as attractive as other apps on this list.

Once we open the application and We grant the necessary permissions so that you can access certain information from the camera, we will see how the data is grouped by means of tabs such as System, Device, Memory. System is the one that saves the information they generate and in it we even see a section that under the name Instruction Sets, allows to know the architecture of the system.



Another of the most traditional applications is Castro. An app that gives us detailed information about the hardware that assembles our phone and with it details other interesting data. It refers to the temperature, system information, our networks and we can even monitor the memory of our Android (RAM and internal).

The design of the app is quite friendly, perhaps the most differential of all those that appear in this list, which does not prevent it from offering data in a clear and concise manner. When opening it we will see a general status of the phone and when doing slide On the left side we can take out an accordion menu and see more detailed information about the different sections of our. Castro is also a free application that can be downloaded from Google Play.


Cpu z

We end up with CPU-Z, another mythical app on Android. We can download it from the Google Play Store for free and it offers perhaps a somewhat more pro aspect than others like Castro. This is reflected in a menu that is perhaps not so flashy but is equally effective in providing information.

In this sense we find more technical and in-depth data. We can know the speed of each core, temperature of the different elements, more detailed information about the device, etc. It is a more “pro” point than Castro, to cite an example, and it is a good culmination when trying to unravel the secrets of the guts of our phone.
