How to Know Information About Your Android Device

You can get a lot of information about your Android device (I use Android 10) from “About phone.” Let’s look at it.

Open the Settings app. Click “About phone” below. Now you can see:

  • Device name – Display the name of your Android device. To change the name, tap the name, enter the name as you like in the pop-up, and then click “Ok.”
  • Phone number (SIM slot 1)
  • Phone number (SIM slot 2)
  • Emergency information
  • Legal information
  • Regulatory labels
  • SIM status (SIM slot 1) – Tap this one, and you will see the SIM network, the phone number on the SIM (you may see Unknown here), the state of the network, its signal strength, roaming and more here.
  • SIM status (SIM slot 2) – The above applies here.
  • Model & hardware – Tap on this one, and you will see the model, serial number, hardware version and model number (SKU) of the device.
  • Software Channel
  • Hardware information – Tap this, and you will see the RAM size, ROM size, Display, Camera (front and rear), and Dual SIM status of your device.
  • IMEI (SIM slot 1) – Tap it, and you will see the IMEI and IMEI SV.
  • IMEI (SIM slot 2) – The above applies here.
  • Android version – This is your Android device version. Tap this, and you’ll see the version, security patch level, Google Play system update, baseband version, kernel version and build number.
  • IP address
  • Wi-Fi MAC address
  • Bluetooth address
  • Up time
  • Build number – Tap it seven times to activate developer options.

As you can see, not all information about your Android device is available here. If you want to know more about your device, install the CPU-Z app.

Once you open the app, you will be in the SOC tab, where you can find the chipset, clock speed, architecture, cores, etc.

The app has a few other tabs and here they are:

Device – Here you can see information about screen, storage, RAM and so on.

System – See the Android version, its root status, uptime, and so on.

The rest of the tabs are Battery, Thermal, and Sensors. Self-explanatory, right?
