The other issue is that no matter how many GB of ram - this adds to battery drain. That's why iPhone can get away with smaller batteries and still last longer.
Android needs a rethink from the ground up. Lot of landfill out there...
The phone is VFM. Amazing Camera, no lags, very nice display, and with the below battery tricks after the latest update is super.
1) Disable NFC, Cloud Print, Location Services. Enable Developer Options > Use cooler display colors. You will see battery improvements for sure.
I also disable 4G and i am using 3G only because here we do not have everywhere 4G so the phone is looking the network and this reduce the battery life.

Also if folk decide to plonk a big game on the memory card latency happens and causes glitches in game. Often not all of the app is moved to external memory card so if you remove memory card apps can misbehave.
This why Nexus use one big block of fast memory like iphone to solve speed/corruption and security issues problems. The drawback is device is more expensive.
Cannot wait for next Nexi which should be due to be announced in 6 weeks or thereabouts.
Druid, 24 Jul 2016Which one should i pick - Nexus 5x or Alcatel Idol 4? I don't have any specific requirements, ... moreIts is not much help but you say last 2-3 years and in that time even the O/S will use more RAM so by then 3GB RAM could be basic requirement. Just 3 years ago smartphones were just working on 512MB RAM now minimum 2GB.
Druid, 24 Jul 2016Which one should i pick - Nexus 5x or Alcatel Idol 4? I don't have any specific requirements, ... moreDoes fingerprint include or not? Idol 4 doent it, but idol 4s has, but it has high price that. Flash plus 2, it would match your price and your spec 3gb, i think.
Which one should i pick - Nexus 5x or Alcatel Idol 4? I don't have any specific requirements, though i like listening to music mainly through headphones. I mostly seek a good performance that could last me 2-3 years.
I heard about the lags in Nexus 5x and seeing that Idol 4 comes with 3 GB i am thinking of getting it (also the promise of good music quality is very tempting too), but there is overheating issue that Snapdragon 617 processor has (or at least i heard of that) and no Gorilla Glass on Idol 4 (?) (I am not sure about that)....
Other similar phones in this price range like Moto G4 Plus or Huawei P9 lite come with 2 GB of RAM in my country. So what could be the best choice for me?
A week back took 5x n it performs well but I felt that its battery is took week while browsing kindly share your opinions

It does decent at point and shoot photography.
It has 1080p screen.
It has the latest Android with better security and controls for apps
It has a strong plastic which means it can absorb falls better.
The rest comes down to what you need it for.
This (32gb) costs 284 eur here now. Consider all the new stuff that is been released, is this still worth buying?

I didn't know the hint of pressing the volume-down button to take a picture, nice! thank you for that info.
We all would like to have an sd card slot in this phone, but somehow Google want us to use their cloud services even if we don't. But that's not a problem, you can download 'airdroid' to your phone and easily transfer pictures, music, videos or files from/to your PC, you only need an internet connection/WiFi.
Does it have Video Stabilization or something like Avoiding the Shaky videos?
I have Nexus 5x for almost two months. I'm very happy with it, it's fast and simple. I bought it because of camera (photos) and it's really good. There are no any manual controls on camera, all is automatic, but photos are really good, even in bad lighting. Phone have "only" 2GB of ram, but I didn't saw any problem with that, even when I load websites with ton of images, all is great. One of things this phone really need is some stabilization for video, optical or software. I like option of fast starting camera by pressing two times power button, and you can also shoot with volume down-up buttons, what is really practical when you drive bicycle or something like that and have just one hand "free" for phone. There are 3 modes for shooting, no HDR, HDR and HDR+. I don't know what is difference between HDR and HDR+, didn't see any diference in photos. But between no HDR and any HDR mode in lowlight photos, there are big difference. HDR photos have less noise and quality is better, but problem for me in this mode is that colors are too vibrant, and they have too much yellow tint. What I would like for sucessor, little smaller size of phone, maybe 4.8-5" screen, video stabilization any maybe slot for microSD card. Like this I need to transfer photos and videos every month or so to PC and to delete it from phohe, to have space for new one (I have 16GB version).
