Apple's iOS is 64-bit only since 2017, but things are messier in the Android world.

I've upgraded from 4GB ram to 8GB and it is enough for running Chrome smoothly. Also they will reduce ram usage after few updates. Even if you never use Chrome you still need 8GB ram if you use Windows 10.

Anna, 04 Jul 2020I don't want Google to follow me everywhere and spy on... moreAs long as Google Play services and other apps in the Google suit are allowed to connect to the Internet, you can be assured that you are being spied on.

It's simply the best.
Stock firewall on Android is unreliable and apps especially system apps are notorious for finding a way to bypass it.

[deleted post]Sure. That is why ios 14's top and most features are a copy of what android has had for years!

The problem is not just the apps, but OEMs who are selling phones with 64bit chip but in 32bit mode. And nothing is being done to inform the end user.

But good news for OEMs as they can sell new and more expensive phones.

Good move. Finally stop using 32 bit devices and apps. Even my ten years old laptop has 64 bit processor. And my S6 Edge which is five years old has 64 bit processor. My only complain about Chrome is that android version doesn't have adblock. I've also used Opera Firefox UC for android. Firefox has addons including adblock but it is slow browser. Desktop version is great. Opera was good but adblock doesn't work anymore in android version. UC browser works good but it displays full screen ads. Finally I've installed Microsoft Edge Chromium. It works great both on desktop and android. Try it yourself but don't forget to enable adblock plus which is located in settings.
