Sprint Product Ambassadors: Why the 64-bit CPU in your HTC Desire 510 is important



Everyone loves to have the latest and greatest, even if it is just to "Keep up with the Joneses". There

are times when people upgrade to things just because they have bigger numbers, when the fact is that,

sometimes, the user will not see a difference. Luckily, getting the HTC Desire 510 for its 64-bit CPU

is not one of those times.

Although you may not initially see too much of a difference between other budget phones and this,

there is a lot happen in the background that cannot be seen. Soon, the next version of android,

named Lollipop, will support 64-bit, and apps will be converted to support it. This will do wonders

for battery life, and should assist with getting rid of some of the "android lag" that people see when

dealing with custom user interfaces that some manufacturer's put on their phones (HTC excluded,

because they do an incredible job of keeping things smooth).

You can find a great article explaing the benefits a little further here. You can also find my full review of

the phone here.
