    I would just point out that there is minimal computational advantage, but there is one under the correct situation.

    A 64 bit CPU could benefit Android if the computational work was complicated enough. The problem is in most cases for a system to have work that complicated many other items will need to be updated like memory size and bus bandwidths to feed the data fast enough.
    The most common boost from 64 bit is the increased addressable space and scientific computing.

    The problem is the computational work almost all apps do is minor and repetitive. That is true for a desktop, phone, or tablet. That is why very little benefit is seen over 32 bit CPU ' other then increased ram. Now you do video editing or scientific computing like seti@home a huge advantage can be seen. The issue there for mobile is the trend is to offload that computing to the cloud so that work isn't on the portable device.
