Why 6 GB RAM Smartphones, Are These Overkill?
Well, many of us may think that so much of RAM isn’t our need with the Android Marshmallow or even Lollipop OS. Android runs without any lags and is quite efficient with 2 GB Ram. Phones with 3 or 4 GB RAM can cover your needs for just 2 years.
However, with the latest Android Nougat 7.0, 6 GB RAM mobiles can be a good idea if you want to buy a smartphone that lasts for 3-4 years.
