    I've never really been bugged about this, but i really want the pixel phone, (I have the Google dialer installed anyway, not the Moto one), but on my 64bit phone arm64 apps don't install. It's not a big deal honestly, but it's rather annoying.

    Strange as the chip is a 64 bit chip.

    It seems Lenovo installed a 32-bit kernel.

    And of course without unlocking my bootloader I cannot install a 64bit one?

    Correct. You need the bootloader unlocked and a custom recovery installed.

    The last time I did that my phone would never remain off when plugged in, so I'm not doing it again. I'm not that bothered, but is rather ridiculous they'd give us a 64bit processor with a 32bit kernel.

    It seems the data bus is of 32 bit.

    Isn't it strange that they'd go with a 64bit processor and then limit it. Perhaps Nougat well bring us to ARMv8?

    Who knows, but reading through those two links it looks like there's a big chance that it will stay as it is.
