Well, we are now having smartphones with 18 GB of RAM on the board, and the popular Chinese smartphone brand ZTE is planning to launch a smartphone with 20 GB of RAM and that is higher than a laptop, as the premium laptops come with 18 GB of RAM and the same costs more than ₹1 lakh. So guys how much RAM do you actually need in your Android smartphone? The answer will be discussed in today’s article of the Akhil Explains series and after reading this particular article, you will get a clear idea on the same and you will be able to save your money while purchasing your next smartphone and you will not fall in the marketing gimmicks of the smartphone brands. So without making any further delay let’s get into the article and understand the actual need of Random Access Memory on an Android smartphone.
What is RAM and its duty
First of all, let’s understand Random Access Memory. It is short-term digital storage, your device uses RAM to hold the data that are active applications along with the CPU and operating system and the same is very fast as well. When you open apps or games, then it will work for you and whenever you open a new app or game, the same will come into your RAM and when your RAM fills then you may need to kill opened app or restart your phone or it will depend on your software as well. If the software which is installed in your phone can able to optimize and kill the last used application or game then you will get space in the Random Access Memory to open another game or app.
The ideal amount of RAM
Smartphones have gone a long way and nowadays, a smartphone that offers heavy duties and the same is an alternative to your laptop as well. We had smartphones with 1GB or 2GB of RAM but now that amount of Random Access Memory will not be enough for our demand. So what is the ideal amount of RAM for your smartphone and that can offer you a first class experience without any kind of lag and slowing down issue.
Well, I would suggest you that 6GB of RAM is sufficient for your smartphone because the same can able to survive all your demand and activities. A smartphone with 6GB of RAM can able to provide a smooth experience for your daily needs and the same will also give you an amazing experience while gaming as well. 8GB RAM is more than enough but extra 2GB RAM is cherry on top. But above 8GB is just waste of money.
To make you more clear, the Google Pixel smartphones and iPhones have a lesser amount of RAM than the many popular devices with more amount of Random Access Memory but the Pixels and iPhones can able to provide better performance and that is mainly because of its optimization.
What happened with the unused amount of RAM
Well, if you purchased a smartphone with 12 GB or 18 GB of RAM or so on, then you will have lots of unused RAM in the device and that actually goes waste and you are spending money on something which you will never use in your life. More RAM consumes more money and when you do not use the RAM then the money is just a waste. So always decide to purchase a smartphone with ideal RAM.
More and more Random Access Memory doesn’t make your smartphone faster but there are many other elements like software as well as processor and that means you do not need to spend more money on a device with huge use amount of RAM. I would suggest that 6GB of RAM is enough for your more and more activities and the same will not disappoint you. 8GB RAM is also good for keeping your device future proof but after that it’s just marketing gimmick.
