Hello everyone, today we would be seeing how to see the hardware configurations of our phones.
There is an app which lets you do this called as CPU –Z.
1.      We need to first install this app before we can use it, to do that open up Google Play Store and search for CPU –Z and install it.
You can even install it directly by clicking here.

2.      Once you open the app you will see below screen,here you have different tabs namely SOC, System, Battery and so on. Each tab will show you detailed information regarding itself.

3.      Lets just see one tab at a time, So the first tab SOC will show us all there is to know about your chipset. The no.ofcores, which core is running at what frequency at the moment, The architectureof it, Load on CPU and so on. SOC stands for Software on Chip, it is equivalent to a motherboard on your PC.

4.      Now tap on systems tab to see it. Now the below screen tell you more about the things at system level such as The JAVA VM your system is using right now The Dalvik VM as shown below , there is also the latest new VM known as ART which canbe used instead of Dalvik but that’s a topic for another article.

5.      Battery Tab. Here you an know the health of the battery, if it shows anything other than good it’s time to replace your battery.

6.  Thermal, this tab shows you the current temperature of the components of your phone.

7.  Sensor tab, here you get to know about different sensors in your mobile phone and as the evidence below suggests, our Zenfone 2 has a whole lot of sensors woven into it.

8. Last tab About, lets you read about the app CPU –Z itself and here you can read the Help & FAQ, Set CPU Z settings and such.

9. If we click 3 dots to the extreme right corner of the screen, we get an option to goto settings of CPU –Z app the same way you could from about us tab and change the settings too.

Hello!
CPU-Z gives inaccurate information.
For example see the Java VM version-Dalvik 2.1.0.
But it's actually ART.
So always use AIDA64 app to determine correct information.
I came to know this from moderators.

Hi Debo,

For evidence,you can download AIDA64 app and check your Java VM version.
For some information,see this xda thread:http://forum.xda-developers.com/ ... ial-t2990338/page60
CPU-Z not only gives wrong info for ZenFones but also for other phones too.
It is proven in the xda thread.

I also found that Lollipop wasn't ART in my phone?
But moderators said that CPU-Z was wrong.
That way I came to know about AIDA64.

Lollipop cannot run on dalvik as far as I know.
It runs on ART.
Some phones like LG G3(on Kitkat) supported switching back and forth from Dalvik to ART.But in Lollipop,it's only ART.

No problem brother!
See this wikipedia note:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Android_Runtime
In the last line it is said
In the next major Android release, Android 5.0 "Lollipop", Dalvik was entirely replaced by ART.[8]
