The very first thing that I want to find out for long time after getting my Google Nexus 4 ~ how fast is the Qualcomm APQ8064 CPU chip inside? Slow, Nominal, Fast or Faster bin? The faster bin means you can overclock and undervolt better than other bins. So you can get better performance, battery life and generate less heat if configure correctly. Want to know yours? Just use Terminal Emulator to find out. Note – Root access is required.


LG Nexus 4 CPU binning


How fast is your Nexus 4 CPU?

  1. Install Android Terminal Emulator from Google Play Store.
  2. Restart Nexus 4.
  3. Open Terminal Emulator
  4. Key in su and enter.
  5. Then key in dmesg | grep PVS and enter.
  6. That’s it.

Oh well, guess that my Nexus 4 CPU can’t perform miracle with nominal status here. Will do some stress tests to find out…
