OS Build in Android
by: Tek Eye • 35
This App provides some additional Android internal technical information which can then be emailed.
To find the version of Android your device is running you can go into Settings and select About Phone (or sometimes just About). Listed, amongst other items, are the Android Version and Build Number, Device Model and Baseband Version. This information is taken from an internal Android data structure called Build (it is an Android Java class called android.os.Build).
Internally the Build data also stores some extra technical information. This information can be useful for developers, repairers, help desks, insurers, forensics and asset logging.
This App shows in a list the values in the properties given by Build. Each list item starts with Build.X where X is the name of the Build field. The value stored in the field is then shown in bold.
Also shown is the field description from the Android Developers documentation, the Java type for the field and how it is accessed in code.
Using the Action Bar/Menu options an email of the Build values for the device is constructed, which can then be sent via the devices email client.
This App is ad supported so it requires Network permission. It does not collect or send any personal or device information. The data collected from the Build structure is only used to display the list and create the starting email. The device operator must initiate the email transmission.
