They both run the same kernel. Especially the thing you say about S7 is an outright lie. I own the thing (well my brother does, but same principle applies). You cannot open more than 7-8 apps, afterwards the OOM manager takes things in its own hands and start killing "fools" (background apps) left and right.
A milion online videos show exactly that. Here's one for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otwED6s3rCQ
3GB is an incredibly tiny amount of RAM for modern android. At best it allows 1GB to the user, with the average app using 200-300 MB (open Facebook, scroll your wall , then go back to desktop, make sure the app is alive and check how much ram it uses even on background) it can hardly store as many as 5 background apps, often less than that.
With phones increasingly becoming our ... information consumption engines, having such a slow experience (reloading everything, from backgrounds apps, to chrome tabs, to youtube buffer, to Facebook pics) makes out for an incredible slow experience.
So yeah 3GB is enough if you want a relative slow phone. For the rest not even 6GB is enough. The more Ram you give to android, the faster it gets no matter what.
Anonymous, 20 Mar 2017Android is Linux based. You always use more than 4GB of ram. Heck you'd probably use more than... moreDude...This is a mobile os based on Linux not a desktop Linux. Moto g1 has one GB ram with Android 6.0.1 and one plus 3 with 6 GB ram was launched on the same version. Please stop talking about the things you don't know. Android will run absolutely fine with 3gb ram. Example Nexus 6p which I am using now. Even if you run 25 apps in the memory except games it will only reach almost 3 GB ram. Samsung TouchWiz is flying on S7 with 4gb.
.alpha, 20 Mar 2017Samsung phones are for rich idiots that paid iPhone prices for no software updates.I rather not update than the phone is slow down after updated my friend iphone 6 slow as hell after installed new ios
.alpha, 20 Mar 2017Samsung phones are for rich idiots that paid iPhone prices for no software updates.Mercedes S500 and maruti alto are both cars. You can't expect both performs the same. If you paid a premium price for a phone then that will perform the way they should. Otherwise nobody will buy it. Don't compare your phone with high end Samsung phones. Because 'you will get what you paid for'.
-Android, 20 Mar 2017Yet s7 got rekt by OnePlus 3 on performance tests!I used both one plus 3 and S7 even though I am using Nexus 6p now. Trust me on this. S7 is far far better than one plus 3 in many things. One plus 3 is still behind S7 in software. You gotta use S7 then you will know. There is a lot of bugs in one plus 3. That is the reason I gift it to someone. But it is not fragile like S7. S7 is the best camera among the phones I used. I never felt any kind of slow in S7.
.alpha, 20 Mar 2017Samsung phones are for rich idiots that paid iPhone prices for no software updates.Plenty of support from the community. I'm running latest lineage os with latest security patch with all features working perfectly on my note tablet. Also I bought far cheaper than the apple product (ipad) back in the day and despite that I'm still getting proper support (old ipads get lesser support, for example lack of multitasking etc).
So yeah I paid a lot , but less than w apple products *and* I'm basically getting support still.

My note4 is still going strong no force closings,no bugs, no slowdown and the latest security update what else do you want. I'm using the exynos version by the way. My best phone yet period.
No wonder this price tag will increase the Sony Xperia XZ premium sales volume!
ram is gold, 20 Mar 2017ram is gold for android users. android = more and more ram. touchwiz ui = eating ram, eati... moreWhat era you come from? I dont know what was the last Samsung phone you seen but sorry to tell you but touchwiz dont exist anymore. Smartphone these day have as much as 6gb ram and even a few are expecting 8gb ram soon. Custom rom dont eat a lot of ram. Most skin on android today are very light with less bloatware. If you want stock android there is no reason for you to even read or comment on this article in the first place.
Hephaestus8, 20 Mar 2017Note 4 have larger screen than S8? How did you come up with that?Not true S8 will spot a 5.8 18.9 ratio note 4 had a 5.7 16.9 Ratio
If these prices are correct, I don't get why people say iPhones are expensive!
