    Upon checking out several sites that have specs on this phone I came across something that made me cringe.
    Our phones are not 64 bit.

    I checked out gsmarena to comfirm and this is what it said.

    Android OS, v4.4.2 (KitKat)
    Chipset:
    Qualcomm MSM8916 Snapdragon 410 - EU model
    Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 - USA model
    CPU:
    Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A53 - EU model
    Quad-core 1.2 GHz - USA model
    GPU:
    Adreno 306 - EU model
    Adreno 305 - USA model


    410 is the 64 bit model. The USA phones are basically last years model.

    I downloaded CPU-Z and it said it had a ARM Cortex-A7 processor running at 1.19 GHz
    it said it had an Adreno 305 GPU and the board was an MSM8226

    I don't want to believe it, and i feel duped. :thinking:

    Android 4.xx is a 32 bit operating system. It will not recognize the CPU as a 64 bit along with its performance boost. To get full advantage of the performance we'd have to upgrade to Lollipop in order to even begin to feel the difference between a 64 bit CPU and a 32 bit CPU.

    To clarify. There are two versions. The sprint/boost/virgin phone are 32 and share the same internals as desire 610. Its on the HTC website.

    Oh ok. I switched from virgin mobile just two weeks ago!! I did it mostly because of how they changed their data rates... Cricket has a 10 Gb plan for $55.... 3gb/$45...1gb / $35. All unlimited text....Where as virgin has 500mb / 400 mins / $35... 1gb / 1200 mins / $45.......3gb / unlmtd Voice/text / $55

    Huge difference...I know I'm off topic now lol...but my cricket version (AT&T) has the 410 cpu which is 64 bit... Not that it matters much with a 32bit android verson.

    Even if kk wouldn't recognize the chip set as 64 bit, wouldn't the build prop and other places show that it was a 410 chip set and 306 gpu? That's why I have the tendency to believe the article that all us versions are 400 and 305's. That's just me though, I'm a"half empty glass " type of guy. Lol

    i get the cpu model 400 MSM8926 and it identifies gpu as andreno 306 on my cricket desire 510.

    speed varies between 1.18 and 1.20ghz.

    the app was cpu-z
