In a pursuit to churn out the maximum speed and performance out of the phones, smartphone brands decided to take the 12GB RAM route. However, we all know more RAM doesn’t necessarily guarantee better performance. So, why are the phones launching with such a preposterous amount of RAM? Or is it just a marketing tactic to stand out from the deluge of phones in the market? Let’s answer these questions first. (हिंदी में पढ़िए)

Do you really need 12GB RAM on a Mobile Phone?

RAM is used to cache the processes in the memory to retrieve them quickly without lag or latency. However, more GBs of RAM is no general rule of thumb to command performance. In our personal experience, We found hardly any difference between the real-life performance and benchmark scores of the OnePlus 6T and its 10GB Mclaren edition.

Having said that, times are changing and we are entering the era of multitasking on folding phones, playing AR and VR games, so on and so forth. All of these could demand more RAM in return. So, in that sense, 12GB phones don’t seem like an expected way forward. They could better propel resource-hungry games and apps and prove handy in multitasking. Thus, for future-proofing our experience, we could grab 12GB phones.

Can I simply say what a comfort to uncover somebody who really knows what they are discussing on the internet. You actually know how to bring a problem to light and make it important. A lot more people really need to look at this and understand this side of the story.
