Device: Asus Zenfone Max (product code ZC550KL, CyanogenMod/LineageOS device name: Z010D)
Chipset: Qualcomm Snapdragon 410
OS: CyanogenMod 13.0 unofficial (Android 6.0.1, https://forum.xda-developers.com/zenfone2/general/rom-cyanogenmod-13-0-t3506369). SELinux is set to permissive on this build.

SnoopSnitch works on this device, getting full information from the baseband. I've tested it in GSM and UMTS modes, there's no LTE coverage on my network where I live. The Cortex-A53 cores in a Snapdragon 410 are 64-bit and running "uname -a" indicates that the machine is aarch64, so you can mark that off as compatible in your FAQ.

Notes: this is a dual-SIM device, and battery consumption is increased massively as the FAQ indicates. Test conditions: only one SIM card is installed, every day the cellular radio is on for 8h and switched off for 16h by putting it into airplane mode. The device is used very little, with wi-fi and bluetooth radios disabled unless necessary, and the screen inactive unless I'm responding to an SMS or call. Battery drain is approximately 15-20% per day when running SnoopSnitch, and 3-5% when not.

I tried putting a SIM card in the second slot (a 10 year old ancient thing that I got and never activated - it never received any messages from the network, if that matters), but this did not affect battery drain at all.
