When you are looking at a phone’s specifications, you may feel at home with statistics such as the amount of RAM and storage space in the device. One thing you may have spotted is when a phone is either “32-bit” or “64-bit” . if you are trying to get info about the hardware there are various apps on play store that can provide you info about your phone just search cpu info or system info. Before we get into the reasons, let’s have a quick look at what a 64-bit processor actually is. When a processor is labelled as 32- or 64-bit, it’s referring to the amount of values that can be stored on that particular processor’s register.  The number refers to the number of bits that can be processed or moved around simultaneously. a 32-bit processor up to 32 digits; and a 64-bit processor up to 64 digits. 32-bit processors can handle up to 4GB of RAM , but 64-bit ones can handle more - more than you could ever hope to cram into a phone.

If you are planning to install a custom ROM like LineageOS , CyanogenMod, Resurrection remix, Mokee rom, Omni rom on your Android smartphone, you should identify if your phone is 64 Bit or 32 Bit.
