The 7 best Android apps to check your phone's specs

Want to know what hardware you have in your Android device? These apps give you a full breakdown of your phone’s specs.

Android OEMs are launching new devices all year round. As such, there are so many options that it can be confusing for the end user. Different Android phones, even those with a similar retail brand, can have different specifications and go beyond memory and internal storage.

If you want to check specific features on your Android phone, you can use these apps to do so. You can use them to check memory, battery, processor, screen display properties, and more.

Here’s our roundup of the best Android apps to check your phone’s hardware specs.


Inware is a sleek Android app that can help you check the various hardware properties of your phone. It’s only a little over 2MB, and with it, you can check out multiple properties on your device without having to search your Android phone’s retail box.

Inware includes an elegant user interface, but most importantly, allows you to examine the specifications of your phone. You can see different properties of the software including current Android version, preinstalled Android version, security patch level, Google Play system update, etc.

It shows different hardware features including display features (resolution, size, aspect ratio, refresh rate, PPI and HDR support), fingerprint and facial authentication support, SoC ( cores, clusters, frequency, GPU and usage), storage memory, battery, connectivity, camera and more.


CPU-Z is the mobile version of the popular desktop app that helps you check the hardware specifications of your Windows PC. Like the PC version, CPU-Z mobile gives you a detailed view of the various hardware features.

With CPU-Z, you can quickly check the SoC properties of your Android phone, including processor cores and real-time clock speed. It also gives you an overview of general properties such as RAM, internal storage (total and available), display, Android version and battery capacity. Other details like sensors, battery temperature, root access and system availability are also provided in a very accessible way.

If you have used CPU-Z on Windows, you will feel right at home with this app.
