Both the g6 and g6 play are 32bit, only the plus model is 64bit

 

Also when you say full version, 32bit is the same software, but the 64bit version just handles +4GB of RAM and certain x64 only apps

Ah, OK, thanks. I wasn't even aware that there was a "Plus" version.
I was rather under the impression the the 64 bit version of Android 8 offered other advantagesm probably related to performance.
Thanks for the info anyhow.

The Motorola G6 has a 64bit processor, only the 8.0 Oreo system has factory installed 32bit. I do not know why...

 

"A 32-bit operating system can only support up to 4GB of RAM. 64-bit allows more than 4GB, giving increased performance. It also allows you to run 64-bit applications"

Hello Forum managers may I know difference between 32 bit and 64 bit?

Does it affect the performance?

I have just read that link and to be absolutely honest, I am not much wiser.

In essence, it seems that the "regular" version (G6) uses the Snapdragon 450, and the "plus" version (G6+) uses the Snapdragon 630.

A 64 bit OS allows access to > 4GB RAM (the G6+ appears to have 6GB RAM) but I don't really know why that would matter in practice?

I am not certain that I would care whether or not I could watch Netflix in HD on my 'phone ;)
