How Good Are smartphones with 64-bit processors
Perhaps you have noticed that we are witnessing an important change in smartphones and tablets. More and more devices are powered by 64-bit processors like Tegra K1 Denver, Snapdragon 810 and 7 Exynos Octa, instead of 32-bit.
But what does this mean and why should I be excited about this fact? By PC World pointed out 5 reasons to choose a phone with 64-bit processor. What is a 64-bit processor? Processors use two types of numbers to perform operations such as addition, multiplication, move or copy data in memory – integers and floating point numbers.
If a single processor can deal with integer operations with up to 16 bits, then it is a 16-bit processor. If you can handle a 32-bit operation, then it is 32-bit and 64-bit processor can therefore handle 64-bit integers.
The main advantage of 64 bit microprocessors lies in their ability to successfully address and manage large amounts of RAM. Click here to learn more about 64-bit mobile processors.
1. 64-bit phones will make everything better and will last longer
This is perhaps the most important reason why you should embrace the idea of 64-bit phones. ARMv7 architecture, which powers most 32-bit phone is good, but it is far from perfect. A new ARMv8 architecture is much simpler, more energy efficient and much faster when it comes to perform daily tasks. This means that user interfaces will be smoother, apps will be more responsive and will be able to enjoy 4K video.
2. 64-bit phones can handle more memory
32-bit processor can handle up to 4 GB RAM (provided that the rest of the device is suitable for this), while 64-bit can handle more RAM, than you can imagine. This is important because the more things we do with our phones, the more memory we need. If you have a huge high-resolution display, many programs, 4K video streaming and love to open a lot of Chrome tabs, you’ll appreciate the extra room 64-bit phones provide.
3. 64-bit phone applications run faster
Android Lollipop is optimized for 64-bit processors. This means that even applications that are not optimized for 64-bit microprocessors must be moving faster. Once developers optimize them, things should improve further.
4. 64-bit phones should be more secure
One of the most important improvements in productivity comes from something that relies heavily on mathematics, such as media decoding, playback of 4K video – or encryption and decryption. The difference between 32-bit processing and 64-bit processing of such things can be overwhelming: in some cases the algorithms that work well on 64-bit platforms are too slow 32-bit. If you will begin to use our phones as mobile wallets, we must have strong security algorithms and for this you will need to choose 64-bit smartphones.
5. You will not really have a choice
By the end of 2015 will be more difficult to find a new model Android phone, which is equipped with 64-bit processor. This applies both to the cheaper models and for these high-end, companies such as Huawei will make their own 64-bit cpu MediaTek as well.http://szlifestyle.com/sz/2015/01/23/how-good-are-smartphones-with-64-bit-processors/https://i1.wp.com/szlifestyle.com/sz/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/sz_64but_cpu.jpg?fit=640%2C533https://i1.wp.com/szlifestyle.com/sz/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/sz_64but_cpu.jpg?resize=150%2C150TECH NEWScpu,smartphone,TechnologyPerhaps you have noticed that we are witnessing an important change in smartphones and tablets.
