Some people like to know what powers the device in their pocket, others just forget about the specs. Whichever the case, we’ll show you how to view the processor on your android phone and how fast is it.

Unfortunately, unlike seeing how much RAM is in your android device , this is not information that we can find in the built-in Settings app. Instead, we’ll use a handy app called “DevCheck.”

First, download DevCheck from the Google Play Store on your Android device. This app has been around for a long time, it’s free, easy to use, and very well reviewed.

Then open the app. You will be greeted with the “Dashboard” tab, which is an overview of the status of your device. We will go to the “Hardware” tab.

At the top, you will see the name of your processor. In some cases, it may not have the full name, as you can see here with “Snapdragon 76x”. You can do a web search for the model number listed under “Hardware” to find the full name, which in this case is the “Snapdragon 765 5G”.

Processor information.

To see the processor speed, you can go back to the “Control Panel” tab and view the “CPU Status” in real time. The “speed” of a processor is hard to quantify and these numbers probably won’t tell you much, but they are here for your curiosity.

That’s all about it! DevCheck is a very useful app if you are curious about the inner workings of your phone. It can also display a lot of information about other things, like battery status , network connections, and camera information.
